“John delivered a fantastic and original presentation on effectiveness, nutrition and exercise at one of our regular UK employee lunches.  It was one of the best-attended sessions we have held, and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive.  His style is amusing and engaging, whilst he challenges many of the “usual” opinions around healthy eating and living.  I would strongly recommend his talks to anyone who has the chance to book or attend one.  The presentations would work well on company off-sites, team days or additions to board meetings and we are looking at all of these forums to let others hear his important messages.”– Dominic Magee, Director, Bridgepoint

“Dr Briffa delivered an outstanding session to a senior team of over 150 IBM management consultants at our annual vision and strategy event. He more than lived up to his reputation for delivering insightful, thought-provoking and lifestyle-changing health and nutrition

advice to senior corporate staff. His rapid, lucid delivery, combined with his deeply-researched insights, made his session the most popular elective session of the day, with many participants talking long after the event about the impact it had made on their lifestyle. – Andi Britt, Partner, IBM Global Business Services

“Dr Briffa spoke on diet and general health tips for nearly 3 hours at our conference in Berlin. Against all odds he kept a mixed and demanding audience of around 120 people totally engaged: his energetic and humorous delivery style demands attention. Even more impressively, our delegates walked away buzzing with new ideas about how to improve their health and still refer to the session over a year later – a highly memorable morning.” – David Adams, Global Head of Finance & Capital Markets, Clifford Chance

“John’s inspiring session on improving performance in the work place both entertained and informed our Glass Lift members and NHS guests. It was extremely thought provoking and resulted in a fantastic interactive discussion afterwards. Not only did our members find it enjoyable on the evening but many have since made real differences to their behaviour: what and when they eat & drink, how long they sleep, and other simple things to improve the way they feel and perform at work. Highly recommended for both organisations and individuals!” – Kaye Welfare, Managing Director, The Glass Lift

“John Briffa is a total one off. A quite short, dark doctor with an interesting Professor Brainstorm haircut who goes on stage at our conferences and then knocks them dead with his unique blend of science, common sense and humour. He scores right at the top on speaker feedback, and senior businessmen have been known to act on and benefit from his advice long after hearing him.” – Matthew Gwyther, Editor, Management Today

“In an industry populated with individuals with ‘brochure knowledge’ of health and nutrition, Dr John Briffa was a breath of fresh air in giving us an insight into how to improve our health, wellness and vitality.” – Ian Bolger, Bolgers

“If John would have chosen to be a management consultant like us, his trademark would be 80-20, quick wins and convincing presentations. If you like tangible output out from little input, John’s convincing presentation could prove to be the quickest sanity check on the sustainability of your lifestyle ever. Expect to walk out with some simple tricks that will make a real difference to your energy and effectiveness.” Robert Bexell, Head of UK practice, RWE Consulting
