John Pullum has been interested in the human mind since a young child. Why do some people succeed and others don't? Why are some people motivated while others aren't?

John's motivational message is carefully woven into his presentations. Your guests will laugh, have fun, be amazed and learn all at the same time. Don't hire a speaker that will bore them to death, hire John Pullum to keep them entertained while educating and motivating them. People seem to learn better while having a fun time. John's presentations are almost a "sneak up" approach to education. The audience is learning as they are laughing, participating and having a GREAT time. They almost don't realize they are learning because they are having so much fun in the process.

Using his background in hypnosis as a guide, John's motivation gets into their subconscious. This helps the message and motivation stay with your guests. John will motivate your employees to tap into the 90% of their minds they say we don't use.
