John McLean Dix
John is a creative, enthusiastic, and inspiring facilitator who has brought his talents to clients from Sydney to San Francisco.
In 2013, John startled his own business as Founder of JMD Partnerships. Since then the company has served clients all over the world and in a variety of industries. In Singapore, to implement banking services protocol. In Armenia, to certify trainers in the delivery of programs aimed at customer service. In London, certifying as a global trainer for c-level executive assessments. And in Washington, DC to work with the federal government on talent management and succession planning.
Prior to that, John served as Director of Organizational Development for four years, he focused on change management, strategic planning, and leadership development for Chartwells, the leader in child nutrition services in the United States. As the sector saw enormous changes in nutrition guidelines, increased financial pressures due to budget cuts, and greater client expectations, John found a way to focus his leadership teams on the effective allocation of resources and proactive strategic planning to navigate those challenging times.
Prior to that assignment he served for ten years as a Senior Training and Development Consultant for Compass Group, the sixth largest employer in the world. He managed organization and leadership development using internally developed curricula and externally licensed programs. He consulted with sector leaders from the four major lines of business as well as the boutique sectors on driving key business metrics and initiatives, creating best practices, and introducing methods of further implementation.
He played a critical role in the development and global rollout of several training programs aimed at senior leadership. These programs resulted in strengthened leadership skills, a better understanding of business opportunities, and better financial results for the company.
Taking his consulting role one step further, John focuses on post-session opportunities, providing participants with tools and resources that will maximize the benefits of his instruction. Ongoing support, follow-up, and measurable results are not an afterthought; they are a critical part of John’s work.
In 2014, John began a new venture as JMD Partnerships, creating his own company with his vision of how to transform companies and individuals to achieve higher levels of performance and greater success. Working for consulting companies such as GP Strategies, BlessingWhite, and BTS International, John is bringing his talents to new sectors within the business world.
Working with a large pharmaceutical firm on communication skills and a global bank on due diligence processes are just two examples of how John’s talent, experience, and expertise contribute to positive improvements in various businesses
