John Anderson

John was at the World Champs in Mezzana in 1993 too, coaching Britain’s team in the downriver race. He previously represented GB in this event and held the Cross-Channel canoeing record for 15 years from 1980.

John has seen at first-hand across his three careers the importance of creating healthy high performance environments for people to thrive and organisations to succeed. First in the RAF, where he was Awarded the MBE in 1991 for  managing personal development and leadership training for RAF operational aircrew. Then as a Team GB Performance Director for 20 years leading exceptionally talented Olympic and Paralympic athletes and coaches to achieve 16 Olympic and 5 Paralympic medals, including five Gold medals at Rio 2016. Both Jonathan and William worked with John during this period. And now as an executive and team coach, John works with leaders to help them unlock their team’s true potential and drive high performance.

John holds a Masters Degree in Executive Coaching from Ashridge Business School and he is accredited by The Academy of Executive Coaching and the International Coach Federation. He still finds time to get on the water, near where he lives in Nottingham.

“Our work with Mezzana has really energised the senior team, driving increased collaboration and improving the speed and quality of our decision making.”
