He has dealt with thousands of small to medium sized businesses, providing finance facilities and partnering with them to help with their development and growth.
John is a regular speaker on topics such as Financial Management Principles and Banking & Finance with a focus on driving improved bottom line performance and sustaining and managing growth. In the year 2000 John spent 3 months, on behalf of Westpac, writing a guide to ‘Starting Your Own Business’ with over 50,000 copies issued Australia wide since its publication.
In 2001 John spent 2 months working in the USA learning the best available array of educational and management tools for small to medium enterprises, specifically in relation to understanding and interpreting their financial statements. The resulting 2 day seminar, Beyond Survival, which John presents on behalf of Westpac has been a resounding success, with over 90% of participants rating the course as excellent. John talks about the Seven Steps to Financial Success. 90% of businesses disappear within 10 years, many due to a lack of financial management. John outlines why this happens and importantly, what business owners can do about it.
As one course participant commented, “John has a natural flair for inspiring SMEs to focus on financial statements, which I now understand as the key drivers for success”.

"The service provided by Saxton was excellent and extremely professional. I value the ability of Saxton's consultants to be able to describe a speaker's performance and presentation with honesty to assist me in making an informed decision when choosing a speaker, as it can be a 'make-or-break' decision."
