John Kennedy

John's life was changed in 2007 when he was approached by the US Marines to develop a brain training program to increase mental agility for the Marines in order to reduce casualties. It rapidly spread from the Marines to other forces and is the only program of its kind vetted and approved by US Special Operations. Once migrated to the civilian sector, it has continued to help everyone regardless of starting cognitive baseline. Students of all ages, business people including an investor on track to become the first non-tech entrepreneur to reach $1B net worth by age 40, to Trevor Harris QB of the Ottawa Redblacks to a young man with cerebral palsy who regained the use of his hands – 1000’s of people have had their lives positively changed by the program.

Prior to 2007, John spent 25 years as a leader in process and project management, helping companies recover $millions of dollars in wasted time and resources and freeing employees to be more productive with less stress. As a board member on the National PMI MetSIG, he was a regular featured speaker at PMI conferences all over the country before creating the program for the Marines. He now combines the best of both to deliver even more value!
