John Lazarou

  • Speaker Topics: Leadership, CEOs / Entrepreneurs, Franchise
  • Fee Range: On Application

Very few entrepreneurs command the respect and admiration that John Lazarou receives without effort. An inspirational self made millionaire and business icon, John Lazarou is a director of Australia's largest and fastest growing locally owned coffee chain company, The Coffee Club.
John is a well known and highly regarded member of Australia's social, entrepreneurial, business, and entertainment fabric. A flamboyant, yet extraordinarily humble achiever, John has pushed himself relentlessly since entering the workforce at the age of 15. His life story is nothing short of remarkable. His success and burning drive stems from the determination and desire of his immigrant parents to provide a better life for their family in Australia.

Now overseeing an ever increasing empire of 100 coffee shops through out the country, John has the enviable responsibility of planning and managing the success of the coffee chain for the future. John's success to date in building one of Australia's largest franchise operations has certainly proved that his impact on Australia's business environment is likely to be significant. John's road through life has taken him far since leaving school at the age of 15 to pursue employment. His ability to leverage and harness market forces, translate consumer patterns into significant opportunities, and create and promote a brand based around coffee, people, and lifestyle is unequalled.

An articulate and incredibly moving speaker, John is a motivational and must hear success story that will move you, encourage you to do more with your life, and assist you to succeed in your endeavours.

  • I would like to say that I cannot think of any other agent / contractor that I have worked with who has kept me in the loop the way you have. I would like to say, once again, thank you.

  • Helpful, quick response time, flexible and full of alternative suggestions.

  • We hold a number of functions every year and are always in need of entertainment and MCs. I must say it has been a pleasure working with Ovations thus far as they have been a tremendous help, always offering a number of alternatives at a great rate. I look forward to working with them again soon in the future.

  • The Consultants at Ovations were both efficient and helpful in our experience and I would have no hesitation recommending the company to anyone looking to source and book appropriate entertainment. Thanks again!

  • From the telephone inquiry, through to an in-depth meeting with Leanne, every attempt was made to ensure that our brief was well understood and that the trainer presenters would be the most effective people to assist us in meeting our objectives.
