"John has led several forum retreats for my forum.  We keep coming back to John because of his strengths in getting us to push harder into issues driving unhealthy or at least not optimal behaviors.  His approach is to listen and ask questions, not to lecture.  John will challenge you, but only after asking if its ok.  We expect to continue working with him in the future!"

“My peer group engaged John Drury as a facilitator for our Team Retreat.  He worked with us on Meeting Structure & Content, Conflict Resolution, and Goal Setting. I value John’s tactic of incorporating time-proven methods combined with personal experience to develop a well-rounded personal growth model. This time, I find that I have been committed to implementing the strategy rather than just a one day “feel good” experience. I attribute this to John’s commitment to follow up and accountability and his continued assistance that has truly “facilitated” us in our pursuits.”

"I want to thank you for skillfully facilitating what I think was a very worthwhile day. I am convinced our forum is stronger now than it was when we all sat down for breakfast on Tuesday morning at the SLS Hotel - and it was already a darn good forum thanks to Larry's leadership and the assistance you provided last March".



Gary Connors  YPO Tampa

Gary Connors YPO Tampa

"Thank you. For me, our retreat was a rekindling of the fire I longed for in our forum. You  awakened in me a burning desire to help us seek the truth in ourselves and provided, in my judgment, the right tools to get us there, curiosity and courage. I am very excited to put both of these to work and very optimistic about the results they will produce in our lives".

John led our Forum retreats over a period of several years and took us on a journey that was as vivid and impactful as one could imagine. He continually built upon themes and provided us with the tools to first imagine and then make tangible incredible possibilities. His process is both inspirational and pragmatic, and he has rich personal experiences to bring to the table, along with his own body of work. John is an passionate leader and his sincerity is unmatched. He is a coach who can bring transformational possibilities into play for those willing to invest and reap the rewards!

"After 22 years in YPO, I have seen my share of great facilitators around the world. While not given to many platitudes, John is the very best. He brings an unique combination of YPO DNA, real world practicality, uncanny personal insight and a refreshing candor to the forum experience. He has made me think about myself and my own journey in substantively different ways. If you want to take your forum and journey of discovery to places eheretofore undiscovered, John is your guy. I am looking forward to using John in my business as well to help me to continue to maximize my effectiveness. John has my highest personal recommendation for all YPO’ers and YPO/WPO forums.”

"John Drury is a very skilled and insightful motivational speaker and thinker. He was the moderator for a Gathering of 8 Senior Executives from different companies who are part of a professional organization. We had an 8 hour session. We all learned about building trust and respect and most importantly, we learned a lot about ourselves. Very impact full and well worth your time and money."

"John has a long list of heart-felt testimonials and it took me about an hour of working with John in a forum setting to understand why. He is a gifted person who is doing what he is passionate about—helping other people to achieve their full potential. His listening skills, observations, and constructive challenges place him at the top of his field."

"Thank you again for facilitating what for me was a very enjoyable and heart-felt forum experience. I have been with my forum for almost 8 years and we explored ideas and concepts that we had not touched upon before. I am happy to have connected with my group in this way and greatly appreciate how you helped us understand each other on a richer & more soulful level. I hope that we will continue to bring creativity to our support of one another in the ways that you suggested".

"John, thank you so much for facilitating for us. It was our best one by far. You really took us to a deeper place as a forum and that happened in one day with you. I was preparing to quit my forum after this retreat and now I am firmly “in”. You also made my personal demons visible to me and gave me a strategy to keep the negative thoughts and voices at bay. After reading your book I know that you are not just some motivational speaker who lives in a van down by the river, but the real McCoy. You lived through hell yourself and came out a new person. One more voice of hope in my head. I look forward to seeing you on your checkup visit with our forum".

Catherine Connolly  YPO New England

Catherine Connolly YPO New England

Thank you so much for all the work you put into making this retreat so meaningful. It was my 4th retreat with this group and it was the best one by a long shot. As I mentioned in my closing, I thought the content was great but I really admire your ability to be probing and clear yet through your spirit and respectful approach you create a safe environment in which people can then dig deeper. I hope to learn from you in my own life and in particular with my leadership team. Thanks again for a terrific retreat.

Neil S. Beranbaum  YPO New England

Neil S. Beranbaum YPO New England

I’ve been a YPO’er for twelve years and worked with many facilitator over the years. John’s message and wisdom resonated louder and clearer than any other YPO resource. He is committed to personal growth and evidences his tenacity and thoughtfulness by rigorously preparing in advance of the retreat, using real life examples to highlight a theme/message and reinforces the learning process with continual reinforcement. He truly digs “deep” while maintaining a safe, confidential environment. Tremendous value.

"Thank you so much for the experience you gave me (and the rest of our new forum) this past week. You exposed us to new tools and ways of thinking that have really helped me and others in a positive way. We are sharing positive results almost daily, which is fun. The retreat was the start of what I think will be a great forum and I appreciate your guidance in getting us off to a strong start in the right direction".

"Thank you for the experience. I have no doubt we are way ahead of where we were as a group when we started the process. I have known these guys for more than 7 years but I can say that I now have a much better understanding of who they are. This will help us establish a very solid base for the future".

Marc Roth EO Chicago

Marc Roth EO Chicago

"Thanks very much for moderating one of my favorite retreats in ten years. I’m grateful for your passion toward providing us with an excellent experience. The survey you had us fill out about ourselves was amongst the best and most thoughtful that I’ve ever completed (and I’ve done many including the 360 degree experience). Your personal interview after reading the completed survey really exemplified your commitment to getting to know us as individuals as well as a group in advance, and undoubtedly played a major role in your preparedness. I also like the way in which you engaged our spouses/partners to drill down potential hurdles and/or growth opportunities. Again, given that we only had a couple days, your pre-retreat work really helped us all get to the top 1% very quickly. I also wanted to compliment you on your moderator style and effectiveness. Your ability to balance respect, directness, and passion for the experience helped get to the juicy stuff quickly, built trust amongst the group extending to you as a moderator, and helped us stay honest and on track. Your moderating was truly key to our experience, as was evident when we all felt both exhausted and exhilarated coming out of each day’s session".

"First and foremost, the retreat was a "job well done".  I was quite pleased with the way it turned out.  Of course, that was partly due to everyone's full engagement and honesty; but perhaps of even greater impact was your leadership, which enabled us to participate so fully."

"I want to personally thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and expertise with the group. You have caused me to look at things differently, to question my "excuses", and to look at the root of who I am, where I came from and why I let that influence me. Your exercise where we all wrote down a secret we have never shared with anyone else was especially eye opening."

"I wanted to thank you again for a wonderful "Retreat" day yesterday.  You touched on all the wants of the group and gave us workable plans to implement a more structured forum process.  I am sure we will rely on many of your suggestions for years to come.  Our forum has the opportunity to go forward without restrictions on what can and should be talked about or said and that will open up so many avenues for exploration that have never existed in this group.

What a wonderful gift to the group.

So Thank you John for lending us yourself for the day and helping us move forward!  Please thank Debbie as well.  You have made a difference in our forum and each of our lives."

"For the past decade, a group of global entrepreneurs has been meeting at MIT for a week of intense learning and kinship.  During this period, we've been blessed to learn from an impressive list of thought leaders–from billionaires, to athletes, to clergy and everything in between. This year, we asked John to join our group as a coach and thought leader. I can't imagine anyone doing a better job. He handled every interaction with extraordinary wisdom and skill. He was rated as one of our best speakers!"

"John has been instrumental in leading our YPO forum to achieve and maintain level three intimacy.  We were created four years ago with little in common.  Today, with John’s help and guidance, our forum provides a safe, confidential, non-judgmental environment where any significant personal or professional issues and opportunities are explored with full disclosure.  We know we are all there for each other to help each other in times of need, to offer potential solutions to problems, and to hold each other accountable for actions and decisions in life.  I cannot imagine life without my forum mates."

Thank you for asking "Why" because that's what matters in life, Why we do the things we are passionate about."

"John is an exceptional leader, facilitator and guide, he is able to take groups to a new level each and every time!  We ( YPO Forum ) have used John for 4 years; I hired John to step into a very difficult setting with my "new" forum - we had just split our forum in two and added two new members to our group - 4 retreats later we have the highest rated forum in our chapter and have gone to new highs even when we thought we could go no higher - Thanks John for your passion and brilliance that you have brought to us - cant wait for next year!  Can we REALLY go any deeper..... - YES!"

"As a Moderator, Chapter Network Officer, EPIC Event Chairman, and next year’s Chapter Chair, I have utilized John for both forum and chapter events for the past five years.   While we all have many choices for who we can use as a facilitator, I have chosen John every opportunity each experience builds on the prior ones and takes us to higher levels of learning and insights.   We just completed a Forum retreat and once again, John’s program and facilitation left us saying “Our best retreat ever---he did it again!”.   I am confident he will continue to do that when we choose him again for next year’s programs….."

"Thank you so much for leading our retreat and all you did to make it great.  I have been in YPO for eight years and this was by far one of the best retreats I had every participated in.  You had a unique style of encouraging openness and pushed us when needed.  With our group being a new forum, this was exactly what we needed to come together and we now have a much stronger forum with a strong foundation to grow.  I also grew personally from our work and I appreciate you pushing me to be more open in areas I need to work on".



Christopher Griffin  YPO Chicagoland

Christopher Griffin YPO Chicagoland

“Our forum was one year old and at a crossroads. We all wanted more, but were not sure what more was, how it might happen if at all, and how it might feel. Having John facilitate our first retreat gave us the tools to find deeper purpose in our forum, help chart our course for the coming year, and provide us the tools so that we can be an effective forum for each and every member. I look forward to the next opportunity to be with John.”



Zane Robertson  YPO Denver

Zane Robertson YPO Denver

"John recently facilitated the new Transformational Forum program for our Forum and he was incredible. Definitely one of the best facilitators we’ve had in our ten years as a Forum.  His ability to help us discover our own insights was much more powerful than just giving us “the answer.”  I have no doubt that our Forum is permanently changed as a result of John’s work with us. Thank you!"



Ben Aissa YPO Chicagoland

Ben Aissa YPO Chicagoland

"At first, I was a little skeptical about hiring John to help our newly formed YPO forum group come together and “gel”. We had a member that recently quit our forum group, and two more that were on the brink of leaving. We needed immediate help keeping the team together. After spending merely a day with John, our group turned around 180 degrees, and is now a lot more coherent. We’ve “gelled” greatly thanks to John's help, knowledge and expertise. John demonstrated great skill helping me, and each member of my forum, become a better executive, a better father and a better leader. I highly recommend him to other YPO members. Thank you very much for your help."

"I've had the privilege of working with John on two retreats now.  The first was unbelievable and to my surprise the second was better.  The personal breakthroughs, communication techniques, and forum depth I took away are hard to explain.  I'd recommend John to any forum that really wants to get after it!"



Martin Mayorga  YPO DC Group

Martin Mayorga YPO DC Group

The retreat was a huge success. You were the facilitator that our group needed. We continued with the momentum the next day and even had some clearings that kept things at a very honest level. We were also able to push through norms very efficiently and even agreed on turning off electronics! Interactions since the retreat have been incredibly efficient and a lot more “human”.

“John did an amazing job in helping our Forum "go deeper" and providing the specific tools and techniques to help us get there.  He probed when he needed to probe, pushed when he needed to push, and took it easy when it was probably a good idea.  I strongly recommend him as a Facilitator and look forward to him working with us in the future.  As an aside, he is a really cool guy!”

"John attended our last forum retreat as a facilitator and trainer. Despite the skeptical nature of our forum around "soft skills," Drury delivered beyond expectations. He gave us the framework, language and tactical tools to navigate and resolve issues among our forum, within our businesses and in every important personal relationship we have. I have personally used his tools for the past month to confront issues within my family and my business while teaching his methods to my closest relationships. Drury has favorably impacted my life and everyone who invests time with him. Thank you John."

He did an outstanding job and trained our forum on YPO forum best practices that we now use at every forum meeting. We were so impressed with John that we hired him to facilitate our first retreat.

We were pushed intellectually, emotionally and even spiritually, and returned home both stronger individually and as a group. Our forum now considers John and Barry "ex-officio" members, and will continue to work with John going forward."

I was so amazed at how quickly you were able to assess an individuals situation and address deep conscious and unconscious issues. It was like you had telepathic powers!!! I've never witnessed anything like it in person. People like you are normally on television. I'm not kidding!! Continue to follow your passion and be a blessing to others!

"Thanks for last weekend.  It was good for me.  You have quite a way of pulling out and crystallizing the emotions that I have not been able to separate from the "soup".  I always get a kick out of watching the forum interact and I guess watch them think.  It was good for me to watch you work and think as well.  I am still shaking my head at how you got away pushing us farther than I have ever seen us pushed. Bringing you up will have lasting affects and was a brilliant move."

"Every time you interface w/ our forum our performance individually and as a forum improves. You have a real knack for “working the process” and “pushing the edges”. Thanks for your continued help in making each and all of us better."

"Going back over my mental notes, I realized that over the years I have worked with 8 different resources of YPO Forum and although all have been enriching I have to say that you guys have provided me with the most take home value and soul building tools!"

"John and Jeff are the personification of "Passion Rules". Our retreat experience changed our Forum in a significant and positive way. They worked hard to understand and get to know all Forum members and encouraged us to honestly express our current level of satisfaction within Forum. We then worked together to build on our great and close relationships within the Forum. They passed on powerful tools to help us move to a higher level of transparency and communication. We are all very motivated to use these tools to improve our Forum experience, as well as our business and personal lives. John and Jeff have inspired and motivated us to achieve more. we all look forward to continuing to build on the concepts and tools that we learned, with them guiding the way."
