Who Am I?

Hello, my name is John Zeus “Zeus” and i’m passionate about helping communities and teams grow. I thrive at leading and coaching organizations on making collaborations work, with innovation, servant leadership, governance and legendary customer service as core themes.

My hobbies include urban farming, local food initiatives, community volunteering, boxing, canoeing and hockey.

People are born into this world as assets, not liabilities. In the end, we are the product of expectation. Expect a lot, and you create amazing people.
