John specializes in scaling systemic reform through capacity building. From senior leadership coaching to whole government training, John draws on his own delivery experience to help senior officials and frontline civil servants work even more effectively towards meaningful outcomes for the people they serve.
As the leader of the Delivery Institute, John has led multiple retreats and training programmes for governments and non-government partners globally, both in person and online.
His work in the Institute is informed by extensive delivery experience across the world, including multiple education systems: Australia, Brunei, India, and New Zealand. Over the course of his time working with them, Brunei improved education results 10 pp from 64% to 74% in four years, and Australia increased time to lead in schools. John has also supported multiple agriculture ministries (Samoa, Solomon Islands, Togo) to help farmers access grants and loans more quickly and easily so they can increase production and profitability.
John's previous consulting experience includes engagements in New York, Rio de Janeiro, and Tokyo, with a focus on public sector reform and post-crisis rebuilding, including organisational redesign, strategic foresight, communication planning, and diagnostics.
