John Sweeney

John Sweeney is one of the most sought-after keynote speakers & workshop leaders in the country, and for good reason. He has been changing human behavior for over 20 years within the biggest businesses in the world, including: Microsoft, Target, Hilton, United Health Group, General Mills, Facebook, and Apple. He has shared the stage with George Bush, Sr., Deepak Chopra, Betty White, Steve Ballmer, and Mark Zuckerberg. A quote from his book appeared on millions of Starbucks cups, and he has danced shirtless on The Today Show and ESPN SportsCenter. John is a bit of an industry unicorn: highly strategic, goal-oriented, AND hilarious (his OG background, after all, was professional comedy.) His ability to highly customize his approach to deliver messages in a truly unforgettable way regularly brings audiences to their feet for a standing ovation.
