Fantastic session, most enjoyable. John's vast experience gives him an advantage in the industry and it was a pleasure to hear his tried and tested take on business when so many new, faddy things are the new shiny objects distracting everyone. The principles remain the same. He is a calm, measured and highly regarded speaker.
