My Teacher Intro
What will you be teaching?
I will be training a whole range of business and social skills, e.g. Time, Priority and Wellbeing, Presentation Skills
What drew you to the subject?
The need for people to reach their maximum professional and personal potential. And this to live successful lives, balancing both.
How long have you been involved with the subject?
Over 20 years
What makes you the right person to teach them?
Besides having the theoretical knowledge and 20 years of experience training a vast range of managers and employees in several European countries, I also have real hands-on experience running my own training companies and training my own trainers in Belgium, France and the UK.
What’s your style of teaching?
Very in-depth pre-course questionnaires to identify participant needs and wants. This resulting in a tailor-made program oriented to each participant’s needs and objectives. A highly interactive and participative teaching style that involves participants and motivates them to attain their pre-fixed objectives with step-by-step action plans.
What interests you away from Teaching!
Yoga, esoteric philosophy, rugby, horse riding, karaté, woodturning, the local community, children, grandchildren, my wife’s cooking (she’s French), travelling

Presentation Skills by John B. May is one of the best courses I took so far. Amazingly interactive, holding your attention, challenging, going through many practical use-cases. Some explanations - and straight to practice. John has managed to give everybody time to present plenty of spontaneous speeches for the class. After each speech - discussion, feedback, notes for future and - to the next one.
I am fascinated with John's manners in leading the course: intelligent, easy-to-understand, good sense of humour, and always very supportive.
I highly recommend John's courses to anybody as a highly valuable contribution to professional and personal growth.
