Dr John Briffa
Virtual and in-person
Dr Briffa offers group sessions, often as a spread over several weeks. Typically, a session will focus on a discreet topic such as nutrition, physical activity, sleep, breathing, mindfulness, or resilience. The sessions provide key insights and practical, realistic strategies for improvement. Q and A time is allowed, too. Details of example sessions can be found below.
Virtual and in-person
Dr Briffa’s workshops allow more in-depth learning covering a wide range of subject matter for smaller groups. Typically, workshops will cover several topics relevant to wellbeing, performance and sustainability, such as nutrition, physical activity, sleep, breathing, resilience and productivity. Content is punctuated with time for self-reflection, planning and questions.
Virtual and in-person
Coaching consultations can be provided in-person or virtually as a workshop element. The 1-2-1 consultations are an opportunity to receive guidance and support in one or more challenge or area of interest. Broadly, these discussions may relate to one or more of the following:
Challenges that are principally emotional or psychological in nature.
Issues relating to work-related stress and feelings of overwhelm, and how to boost personal effectiveness and sustainability.
Lifestyle-related advice (e.g. nutrition, physical activity and sleep).
No subject is 'off-topic', and the sessions are completely confidential.

"John delivered a fantastic and original presentation on effectiveness, nutrition and exercise at one of our regular UK employee lunches. It was one of the best-attended sessions we have held, and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. His style is amusing and engaging, whilst he challenges many of the 'usual' opinions around healthy eating and living. I would strongly recommend his talks to anyone who has the chance to book or attend one. The presentations would work well on company off-sites, team days or additions to board meetings and we are looking at all of these forums to let others hear his important messages."
Partner, IBM Global Business Services
"Dr Briffa delivered an outstanding session to a senior team of over 150 IBM management consultants at our annual vision and strategy event. He more than lived up to his reputation for delivering insightful, thought-provoking and lifestyle-changing health and nutrition advice to senior corporate staff. His rapid, lucid delivery, combined with his deeply-researched insights, made his session the most popular elective session of the day, with many participants talking long after the event about the impact it had made on their lifestyle."
Global Head of Finance & Capital Markets Clifford Chance
“Dr Briffa spoke at our conference in Berlin. Against all odds he kept a mixed and demanding audience of around 120 people totally engaged: his energetic and humorous delivery style demands attention. Even more impressively, our delegates walked away buzzing with new ideas about how to improve their health and still refer to the session over a year later – a highly memorable morning.”
Editor, Management Today
"John Briffa is a total one off. A quite short, dark doctor with an interesting Professor Brainstorm haircut who goes on stage at our conferences and then knocks them dead with his unique blend of science, common sense and humour. He scores right at the top on speaker feedback, and senior businessmen have been known to act on and benefit from his advice long after hearing him."
"In an industry populated with individuals with 'brochure knowledge' of health and nutrition, Dr John Briffa was a breath of fresh air in giving us an insight into how to improve our health, wellness and vitality."
