Shot down during the first Gulf War in 1991, John Nichol describes himself as an ‘ordinary guy who just happened to find himself in extraordinary circumstances’. He is a regular speaker & host at corporate conferences, management seminars, company training courses, and after-dinner events. His presentation, tailored to the occasion, is electrifying, humorous and inspirational.
John’s account of what happened takes the audience from the highly organised training, planning and teamwork of an RAF fast-jet squadron to the isolation of being shot down and held in solitary confinement. His experiences qualify him to speak with unquestionable authority on not only surviving change and adversity, but also turning it to your advantage.
John’s message is one of optimism, inspiration and personal motivation. His personal triumph lies in having discovered his potential to cope with extremes and achieve goals way beyond his perceived horizons. And John leaves his audience in no doubt - that potential exists in all of us.
SPEAKING TOPICS – After Dinner, Overcoming Adversity, Leadership & Motivation
"It seems amazing that we have been working together for 4 years; I never fail to be impressed by what you say and always learn something new. You are the highlight of the programme and the effect on the delegates is electrifying; I still meet former delegates who remember your presentations and who have taken many of the lessons back to the workplace and into their private lives as well." - BT Management Training
“John Nichol has made a big impression. He exceeded our expectations and has become a talking point within the organization. His presentation was very thought provoking - no one can fail to be motivated." - Vice President sales, Nortel Networks
