John is easily the best speaker I have had at D&T.  He is very well prepared and able to kick start a discussion even when the class's energy seems low.  He is filled with numerous examples from which to illustrate his point.  He should be used as much as possible.


Sr. Manager

I have worked with John on several occasions over the past several years.  In every instance, he has exceeded expectations.  John has the ability to facilitate a team through training, planning or creativity exercises in a way that brings the best out of the group.  Barriers are broken down more quickly than with other consultants that I have worked with trying to accomplish the same thing.  He does this in a way that promotes hard work ... while having fun at the same time. 


President & CEO

John Canfield brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our organization.  He has delivered training sessions, change management workshops, and consulted on team performance.   John is able to identify the tools and facilitation techniques which are ideally suited to the task at hand.  His easy, self-effacing style creates a safe environment and engages participants.  John's commitment to delivering quality products and his thorough nature make him a valuable business partner.


Manager, Learning Systems

John is one of the most innovative and knowledgeable individuals I have ever worked with as an overall team development and "thinking out of the box" leader. He has developed and fully understands numerous tools of problem solving and creative thinking which can bring new leadership development to your team. John has kept informed about all modern tools in his field adding each year to his ability to effectively lead in different areas of company problem solving, quality systems development and creative thinking.


VP Manufacturing

John had a tough task and did it well. Without John's help we would have accomplished only 25% of what we got done in this meeting. One thing I really appreciated was your reading the situation and knowing when it was a good idea to alter the agenda. I have to admit I was skeptical of using a facilitator but I can say with 100% certainty that we would not have accomplished as much as we did, or reached to the depth we did without John.
Fantastic with a difficult situation. Wonderful calming style. A wealth of tools, metaphors, stories, prior experiences - an amazing facilitator toolkit.


Business School Faculty Retreat Participant

John was a very effective speaker with an astute sense of timing. He had a hands-on approach to learning and linked concepts to experience by using perceptive and concrete examples. He was well organized and creative. His energy and humor are very contagious.  He's great to be around. My overall assessment is that John is among the best of our contract consultants.
