Connecting People to the Extraordinary
AN ENTERTAINING TWIST
Hi, I’m John Guastaferro, and I connect people to the extraordinary. I weave 20+ years of business expertise and world-renowned magic to create amazing experiences for teams. I make complex topics interesting and turn the mundane into the marvelous. From keynotes to multi-day retreats, I create leadership experiences that Educate, Entertain, and Energize (E3).
THE POWER OF THREE
In my work with numerous corporate and nonprofit teams, I focus on three critical areas for success: TEAM, BRAND, and CAUSE. These areas must do more than coexist—they must be synergistically connected.
I help put strategies into place that : 1) Revitalize teams; 2) Build brand messaging and brand champions; and 3) Increase awareness of your cause.

The One Degree Difference
We are led to believe that big results require massive changes, yet the extraordinary is closer than we think…one degree away. Just as heating water from 211 to 212˚ takes it to the boiling point, a one degree tweak can create a powerful pool of possibilities. I’ve had the privilege of speaking across the world and exploring this topic in my book One Degree. Through ODC, I help leaders uncover pivotal one degree opportunities to take their team, their brand, and their cause to greater heights.
