John became Australian cricket team coach in 1999 and in 2007 finished a very successful campaign having coached the team to a world record number of straight Test Match wins (16), consecutive One Day International victories (21) and set an unprecedented World Cup record with 2 World Cups and 24 games undefeated. In 2007 the Australian Cricket Team were World Cup Champions, Test Cricket Champions and One Day Champions, in addition they returned the Ashes to Australia in 2006-07.
This record of victories makes John the most successful coach in the team’s history.
John was the first coach to use computer analysis of every ball bowled, John retained a unique approach to expand the horizons of the team which means trying to develop the whole person, not just the player.  With a winning record of over 75% as Australian Cricket Team Coach, John will explain how his coaching approach applies to any sector of human endeavour including sport, business, and the community. His ‘whole person’ philosophy has certainly proved popular in the corporate sector having presented to organisations such as Vale, BHP Billiton, PWC, KPMG, Telstra, MLC, Queensland Cotton, HSBC, Queensland State Government, Daimler Chrysler/Mercedes, the Professional Golfers Association of Australia, the English Football Association and the England and Wales Cricket Board.
John is an author of three books, “If Better is Possible”, “Learning from Legends – Australian Cricket”, and “The Future of Cricket”. John is married to Judith and they have 5 children.
