Why John Murphy International Should
Be Your Team Building Partner

“As an executive and business coach, John stands out from the pack in two key ways. First, his depth of experience as an actual former senior executive – meaning he can coach you on content and strategy as well as process. Second his structured approach to coaching coupled with a relentless drive to “dig deeper” and ask the bold questions you don’t really want to be asking yourself. If you’re looking for a coach or mentor to help you navigate the crossroads of your professional life, get unstuck or take your business up to next level, I would seriously consider John. If your experience is anything like mine, you’ll be glad you did.”
Ago Cluytens
Practice Director EMEA, Rain Group

Ralph Peters. Inspire Results
“I have worked with John on a number of occassions and found him to be a superb facilitator and a very clear, concise communicator. He also has a great ability to get to the core of an issue and challange my thinking to look at myself and the business in a different more creative way. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending John.”
Colin ONeill. Director
