John Zimmer

John is an internationally recognized expert on public speaking and presentation skills. He is a 7-time European champion of public speaking contests and works with corporations, organizations and individuals around the world. He co-created Rhetoric – The Public Speaking Game™, and writes a popular blog about public speaking, Manner of Speaking.

Before becoming a professional speaker, John worked as a lawyer for a major Canadian law firm, the United Nations and the World Health Organization. John is from Canada, eh? He does not know Justin Trudeau but he is polite. John is determined to turn his fellow Saints into ice hockey fans. The oldest member of the Saints, John knows that, were he to leave, the average age and collective wisdom of the troupe would plummet. John loves improv games that involve singing. He thinks that his ability to rhyme hides his inability to sing. It doesn’t.
