New Health & Wellbeing Theme Group Chair
We are very happy to introduce John Williams as the new chair of our Health & Wellbeing Theme Group.
John has over 30 years’ experience as an executive in FTSE 100 organisations, bringing that commercial edge and getting the right balance between social and commercial objectives. John uses data, relationships, and people to drive change and get results. John believes that the answer is always in the room, developing the ‘Genius Within’ to optimise their potential and life chances. This approach shifts the balance of ownership from a central perspective towards communities, and organisations.
John is a coach of outstanding quality. With more than 30 years combined business management, consulting, coaching and mentoring experience, he is an expert in helping clients achieve significant profitability and performance improvements.
While primarily a personal coach, John is also a highly skilled facilitator of group coaching and coach training, an experienced change management consultant having headed up several major change programmes and an inspirational conference & seminar platform presenter.
John has vast amount of experience in building resilience from a practical perspective. John is a former international sports coach, coach educator and leader with experience in Europe, Asia and America. The work exposed him to many different cultures, societies, and people, who faced an ever-changing expectation and increased competition.
He has extensive experience in the competitive commercial world of outsourcing, supply chain management and consulting on large, complex, high value government contracts. That work included the first outsourced contract by a local authority, Clinical Commissioning Groups and Social Services to look at a strategic partnership approach to address Mental Health in a geographical region, Housing Support, and Home Care.
A preventative approach to health and well-being sets out to build resilience through professional service integration by supporting people to navigate their way through a complex mix of services and organisations to deliver the best outcome for people across the spectrum of any particular demographic.
