Our formula for seminar, workshop, or speaking engagement success:

relevant, useful, and thought-provoking content, shared in an engaging,
high-energy experience, with a laser focus on kinetics:
commitment, action, and real results. 

John Doehring is an accomplished and admired speaker, known for his on-stage energy, enthusiasm, and audience-engaging style.  John is a maverick – a contrarian voice – who speaks with candor and humor about the realities of business today, but with a bold optimism for the enormous potential of our world ahead.  He speaks regularly on topics of individual and organization success: business strategy, growth, and profit; developing existing and next generation leaders; and operations excellence and transformation. Around the nation and beyond, John’s audiences have included hundreds of private client firms, conferences and seminars, and keynotes and breakouts for trade associations at local, state, regional, and national events. 

Program Formats

Our live speaking enagements are generally offered in one of three formats:

  • Boot camps and seminars – longer form, comprehensive, and full immersion, 1-3 days;
  • Active workshops – shorter form, detailed, interactive, 3-6 hours;
  • Keynotes and breakouts sessions – high-energy and engaging, 45-90 minutes;

Our content, materials, and subject focus can often be tailored to fit into one or more of these formats – an hour, a half day, a full day or more.  Let us know what you’re after – we’ll work with you to create a program that fits your team just right.
