Breaking Through Barriers
In order to grow, you must overcome challenges. Challenges come in different shapes and sizes for everyone. They can make you or break you. Johnny delivers straight-forward strategies to break through barriers so you can thrive at work and in life. Challenge accepted!
Think Like an Olympian
Nothing happens without taking action. Ultra-performers are men and women who find a way to get the job done with the current resources available. Johnny powerfully simplifies the elite action steps he developed in the Olympics and professional football to help everyone in your organization become and ultra-performer and win in the marketplace.
We live in a day of constant change. Whether it is economic, social, technological or regulatory, if you are not changing and adapting you will be left behind. Johnny clearly lays out a plan to develop a champion mindset giving your organization the ability to adapt to change and come out ahead of the competition.
Leading in the Digital Age
We are connected around the clock and if we are not careful, work never shuts off. We risk burnout and resignations if we don’t embrace a healthy work-life balance in a 24/7/365 digital world. Johnny demonstrates the importance of leading through influence (not just positional power), and communicating visually and interactively in the digital age with immediate practical application.

I hired Johnny Quinn to speak at our Annual Sales Conference. Johnny’s preparation, energy and attention to the overall goals of the presentation were spot on! Johnnv is a true survivor and competitor and had a wonderful story of perseverance and passion. I would highly recommend hiring Johnny to help motivate and inspire our company staff, teams, or departments.
Johnny spoke at our Annual Leadership Meeting this year and was a wonderful addition to our schedule. This was the first year we invited keynote presentation from outside our industry to speak at our conference so we were unsure how it would be received, but Johnny was the perfect speaker to motivate and inspire our leaders. Johnny’s message of resiliency and adapting to change was a perfect complement to our program.
