John was such an asset to the leadership development program that I was a Program Manager for. Because of the caliber of his leadership, he developed high-performing managers with the potential to move to mid-level leadership positions. We often called upon John to speak to the candidates in the program about leadership, including his journey. It was always amazing to be a part of audiences left mesmerized by his amazing oratorical prowess.
