Meet John

Welcome to One Degree Connect. I’ve dedicated my career to growing brands, advancing causes, and building strong teams. Beyond the business world, I am a global speaker and professional magician, inspiring thousands of people across 11 countries.


We all have the power to connect people to the extraordinary! I help professionals get there by bringing three core areas into powerful alignment: Team, Brand, and Cause.

Spark Magic In Your Team, Brand & Cause


Today’s consumers are looking for more than great products or services. They want to feel connected to you, your brand promise, and your social values. That’s why it’s so important to align the power of TEAM, BRAND & CAUSE.


These areas must do more than coexist—them must be synergistically connected. This propels you to gain a strategic advantage in business and a deeper connection with your clients and community.

The One Degree Difference

At One Degree Connect, I help you uncover pivotal one degree strategies to connect the power of team, brand, and cause. Just as heating water from 211 to 212˚ takes it to the boiling point, even a one degree shift can create extraordinary possibilities. It’s a topic I cover extensively in my book One Degree, and in my travels across ten countries. Success is closer than we think…just one degree away.
