Testimonials

I really appreciate my coaching with John, and how he steered me to a structured plan that I can work on. With lots of competing short-term priorities, working with John made me stop and concentrate more on what I need to get done in the bigger picture. Definitely by far, the best coach I’ve worked with
— GENERAL MANAGER, CONSULTING SERVICES

John has been the best coach I have had in 17 years - he is a great listener, is able to digest a LOT of information that I throw at him and then is able to play it back to me in a more logical and structured way of thinking. He asks great questions that challenge me and my perspectives. Sometimes we end at the same conclusion, but the process is hugely valuable
— CHIEF TECHNOLOGY OFFICER

John Brewer is an excellent coach and human being. He is highly empathetic. He respectfully pushes at times and also knows when to let the conversation be more free flowing. I found myself sharing more personal things with him than I planned...and I think that my overall development plan benefitted from that. He also shared several studies and additional materials that enabled me to continue to learn and grow in between our conversations. I also see that my current leadership team could benefit greatly from his coaching - I think he could help us build better trust together as we lead together through the transformation
— GENERAL MANAGER

What a great experience! Overall I like the format of feedback from various stakeholders, using our CEO transformation elements, and creating my own development plan
— SPECIALIST SALES LEAD

John is a very effective listener and was able to articulate my growth needs as well as my strengths in a manner that helped me organize my thoughts on professional development. I have a better view of the traits and skills I need to focus on to take positions of more responsibility and authority in the company, through his coaching
— VICE PRESIDENT, PUBLIC SECTOR

It’s been a great experience working with John and very timely, given my personal journey. I started out looking for a reason to stay in my current role and frankly current company. John helped me unpack where I am, why things may be the way they are, and how to make a fresh start on my next phase of growth. I am really enjoying my work again
— SENIOR DIRECTOR, BUSINESS ANALYTICS

John helped me organize the competing priorities in my life that allowed me to focus on what was most important. He continues to guide me through his inquisitive nature, helping me find the true meaning and value of opportunities and challenges in my life.

John persuaded me to join Microsoft when I was uncertain, and my time there was successful and enjoyable largely because of him being a great manager and coach. He is a man that supports you as a person as well as in the job. John is a big picture thinker, and was always supportive of me following my dream to be an entrepreneur which helped me on my path to launching my own business
— chieu cao, founder and chief marketing officer, perkbox

I had the privilege of working with John when he led Digital at a disparate and disorganized portfolio of businesses at TUI. During that time I grew to appreciate his skills at general business and marketing. Beyond that however, I witnessed John’s ability to develop, coach and mentor both peer executives and less senior professionals. John has many gifts, but chief among them is his coaching and communication skills which I saw build trust, encourage, inspire and grow talent. In his transformation role it would have been impossible for him to personally drive marketing for all the brands, so he built deep trust and relationships to enable the marketing leadership in multiple companies to have a great impact on the business. It is with great pleasure that I recommend John Brewer as an exceptional leader and coach
— sean madian, senior hr director, impinj

My executive coaching with John has proven extremely valuable in helping me build a clear vision for my career. John is a patient active listener who gently challenges you to be more introspective, helping you uncover opportunities for development or a new path to reach your goals. I recommend John to anyone seeking constructive guidance on working through career challenges
— Director of marketing, microsoft

I worked with John for a number of years at both Microsoft and Expedia, and consider him a trusted advisor, a man of integrity and a highly skilled business coach. John has the rare ability to combine the theory of coaching with extensive experience as an international business leader. He has worked for some of the world’s leading brands, at more traditional organizations and at pioneering digital businesses. He is a very experienced commercial operator with a deep background in marketing and business management. His ability to unite coaching methods with relevant business insight is hugely valuable

I had the opportunity to work with John at Alaska Airlines where he was leading the product organization. John’s leadership skills were crucial in bringing about positive change in the organization during it’s transformation from waterfall to agile. Even with everyone needing his attention he managed to be there for people, and also used his uncanny ability to keep multiple perspectives in mind and utilize that to guide people towards success
