ABOUT JOHN BURNS

John Burns worked in industry as a chartered management accountant for two and a half decades until the 2008 global recession led to his role being made redundant. 

He wasn’t the only victim of the recession, but he didn’t play the victim as he picked himself up and started a new life.  

As one door closed another opened. John became a friendly ear to whom other professionals speak in order to find a solution. 

He listens and helps them to find a way to overcome their challenges through coaching and mentoring. 

If you are going through any form of challenges in your career, contact John and book an hour session with him. It will be worth your while. 

When John was made compulsorily redundant from a career for which he has given 25 years of his adult life, he had to decide on one of two choices: play the victim and blame his former employers for what happened to him or take full responsibility and start afresh. He chose the latter.

This makes his mission to help people secure their jobs very personal. Several people approach him today with cases like being no longer happy with their jobs; being stuck in the jobs they don’t really like; dreading to go to work and face a particular superior officer. These issues take a toll on the individual as well as their loved ones. John treats his clients on a one-to-one basis. There’s no onesize-fits-all system to resolve all issues at once.

He often says “if I knew then what I know now…” He equips his clients with skills and information not only for them to be more relevant to the employers and become indispensable but to rekindle the passion for their jobs. And for those who are already made redundant and are thinking of starting a business, they would learn so much from John’s experience about starting a new business.
