Empowered minds create the future

Uninspired minds discuss people and the past. Average minds discuss events and politics. Empowered minds discuss ideas and create the future.

The potential to remain creative is in us all. To do so and remain focused needs both energy and ideas. Organisations that create conferences and forums specifically for their people, improve their people’s leadership skills, creativity and confidence. In doing so, their people become empowered and learn from one another.

How creative, mindful, empowered and focussed are your people?  

Are you interested in creating an event to inspire, empower and educate your people? 

Wherever he is in the world, John Hale’s goal as a speaker is to empower people with value-driven strategies that help to create the future.

John delivered an action-packed and magical day of team building and awareness raising games and exercises. Morale is much higher and we are working much more cooperatively and effectively as a result.

Customer service is important for our dealers, yet we wanted an extra customer service effort right through the buying process. Hale Consulting Group led this change by crystallizing the benefits of extra effort with great results. John has spoken at our national dealer conference three years running. It is rare to have a business advisor passionate about the issues and who balance changing attitudes with the discipline of personal action plans.

I think John’s ‘Basic Instinct’ presentation to our members was one of the best presentations we have seen at AIEA. As a speaker, John captured our attention early and earned our trust quickly, so that the true nature of the leaders in the audience could be revealed, shared and celebrated. I recommend John as a highly skilled professional speaker, who can adapt quickly and add significant value to a leadership audience. We look forward to having John back to speak again next year.
