Testimonials


I have known John Terhune for four years during which I have had many opportunities to watch and listen to this incredibly gifted public speaker speaking with great passion to small audiences, even to large audiences numbering in the thousands. He is arguably one of the most dynamic and impassioned speakers I have ever heard. His presentations are always natural and sincere, dynamic, never over the top, a “human being speaking head and heart to other human beings”. He is always looking into the eyes of audience members as he speaks. John speaks from the heart in a voice that is colorful and natural; he possesses the gift of being artfully dramatic when appropriate. He routinely praises his audience is a very subtle way and empathizes with the problems his listeners may be facing. Never condescending but always encouraging and motivating, John routinely receives standing ovations wherever he speaks.

The secret to John Terhune is not that he has a tremendous understanding of success principles, which he does.  It’s his ability to transfer that knowledge in a way that others “get it”.  Through his teachings, people want and know how to apply these principles.  He is one of the best teachers I have known and is a dynamic motivator.  I have personally experienced his coaching from one on one with executives and training small groups, to speaking/motivating/inspiring a packed house in the Georgia Dome and 50,000 plus people two weekends in a row in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  As the past President of Merrill Lynch Insurance, I have known and observed many speakers, trainers, and motivators but none have been as effective in achieving actual results as John.

John Terhune:  "Lock 'n' Load" comes to mind.  I very clearly remember the first time I saw John on stage in 2009 and have experienced him several times since then. He is often the last speaker in a long line of speakers.  I understand why.  After a full day or a weekend conference, the crowd is either listless or ready to go home or (best case) crescending to the ever expected peak of the moment.  Either way, John makes the day.  To say he energizes the audience does not do him justice; more like, he electrifies.  He is a powerhouse speaker, extremely adept in enrolling inspiring and moving people to radical action.  He is authentic, innovative, original and unabashedly passionate.  All "thumbs up" for John Terhune.
