What Others Have Said

"A great speaker who draws from his vast experience of retail, (and) the music and film industries... always presented in a challenging and entertaining way."

Eddie Cunningham
President Universal Pictures Worldwide Home Entertainment

"Busy is a State of Mind - I would place this enlightening talk in the 'must experience' box. Whether looking to enhance your efficiency, influence, or even diplomacy, the talk is packed with actionable take outs intelligently interwoven with genuine experiences relevant to any career stage."

Liz Bales
Chief Executive, British Association For Screen Entertainment (BASE)

"Johnny's latest lecture on negotiation was a triumph. A difficult and potentially 'boring' subject matter brought alive with great insights and real-life examples of the varying techniques employed during a negotiation. Tailored for a wide audience to include the most experienced negotiators to the newbies and the feedback has been fantastic. I couldn't recommend this lecture highly enough."

Helen Parker
EVP Universal Content Group (NBCUniversal)

"Johnny has visited The School Of Film and Television at Falmouth University for an annual lecture for over seven years. His knowledge and experience of entertainment management, acquisition and distribution is unsurpassed, and his talks are engaging and popular with students. His advice around professional co-production has been invaluable in project development and, testament to Johnny's impact, is the incorporation of industrial practise, film financing and acquisition in our degrees."

Dr Kingsley Marshall
Head Of Film, Falmouth University

"Johnny's "Busy Is ... " talk proved to be invaluable for both me and my team at Gulbenkian, helping us to question our ways of working, thinking and communicating. As a result, I have seen an increased appetite to examine our habits and the way that we do things, resulting in more effective ways of working together as a team."

Oliver Carruthers
Director, Gulbenkian (Cinema, Arts & Theatre, Canterbury)
