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

I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending John.”
