Meet The Trainers

John Holmes

John studied in England, Greece and The Netherlands and holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in European Laws. John helped train many companies and organisations for several years at Cranfield Management and Development Centre, including Toyota, British Airways and RBS. He set up his company in 2000 and entered a relationship with the Dutch Central Bank. Between then and his first international seminar in early 2003 he developed the original core tools and approaches that comprise much of his style and have proved so popular. Further clients included NATO, the United Nations’ ILO, the Austrian civil service and many of the major central banks of Europe. As the decade progressed John was asked to offer bespoke training to a number of conferences and seminars for financial regulators and supervisors. In addition to training seminars John provides coaching and clients include senior managers from the Bank of England and the Dutch Central Bank.

John lives in England near the East coast and is a keen sailor and cook.
