About John French

John French is a renowned communication strategist and communication skills coach.

Having amassed 26 years of across-the-board experience in the communication training industry, John has created some of the brightest performers in many professions and industries, and has radically improved the bottom line of organisations he has partnered with.

With a background in Law, Public Relations, and Speech and Drama, John has the necessary knowledge and experience to look at communication both holistically and strategically. Communication, leadership and influence are very intricate, and often unexplored, human sciences. Over the decades, John has developed training methodologies and communication models to help our clients break through their limiting fears and derailers to achieve communication and career success.

John spends the majority of his time training Asset Management clients, and he also trains leadership communication, presentation, media and influencing skills at The University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business, which is Triple-crown accredited (Triple-crown accreditation is held by fewer than 1% of business schools in the world, and is granted by the three largest and most influential business school accreditation organisations).

John’s motto is ‘always work with the best and give your best”. We are proud to present to you our collection of outstanding trainers who are also amazing human beings.
