John Blakey – The Trusted Executive

Welcome to the work of John Blakey

The Trusted Executive

The global financial crisis and a series of corporate scandals have brought trust in business to an all-time low. According to the 2014 Edelman Trust Barometer, only one in five respondents trust business leaders to tell the truth. John Blakey's work with 'The Trusted Executive' is an appeal to all those who wish to transform the triple bottom-line of results, relationships and reputation.

John Blakey - The Trusted Executive - author and conference speaker

John has been inspired to write the 'The Trusted Executive' through helping over 120 CEOs/MDs from 22 different countries achieve their goals, as well as Team GB/England sports coaches in rowing, cricket, diving and target shooting.
Through his work, John has come to believe that, to paraphrase author Charles Green, the world is ready for leaders who rely upon the power of trust rather than those who trust in power.
