The first part of the seminar is delivered with both Power Point and DVD presentations and involve the introduction about himself and some basics about his history as an artist. Following this is a discussion about the importance of art and ecological awareness bringing about positive perceptual shifts. This leads into a PowerPoint presentation, where he projects various powerful art images, which can amount to anywhere between 50 to 100 images, followed by a question and answer discussion. During image projections, John focus’s on the visuals of around eight main aspects of this environmental artwork. He encourages audience participation in the form of question and answers in all of his seminars.

A significant part of John’s seminar in part 2 is devoted to ways artists can respond positively to today’s economic crisis with wealth creation strategies.

Statement: ‘Facilitating seminars and public speaking has developed for me as a natural extension with my work as an environmental artist. I love to deliver keynote-speaking addresses and running these seminars to audiences worldwide.
My many years in the past as an educator have aided this, with my lecturing at both the university and secondary level. Invitations to speak publicly in the form of seminars are common for me these days, which I enjoy. I love to travel, plus I believe the effect I have on my audience far outreaches the carbon footprint I’m making with the travel component of giving these lectures and running these seminars.
I’m very fortunate as well to connect with people on such an intimate way in these talks, as evidenced by how I regularly receive e-mails for long after wards from around the globe by people who have been touched by one of my lectures and have been motivated into positive action as a result of doing one of my seminars.’

John has spoken to groups of people ranging in size from 30 – 3,000.
