Specialty Areas

Dr John Hinwood has an unusual way of changing people's lives. In a journey that has lasted more than  24 years he has been handing out a small white card to almost everyone he has met. The card has just three words written on it... 'Expect A Miracle'.

He estimates he has personally handed out over 86,000 cards to people all over the world in the last 24 years. Through this small act of kindness John Hinwood prompts people to think about their own miracles; the small seemingly insignificant events and moments in people's lives that open the doors to a sense of wonderment and opportunity.

As a coach, consultant, mentor and international speaker for over 30 years he has helped people around the world and in all walks of life find their own miracles in business and life.

John is a well-known author of numerous books, the latest an international best seller, You Can Expect A Miracle... the book to change your life!

He is a great example of the power of miracles. He suffered from severe 'knock knees' as a young child, was a bad stutterer and also suffered from dyslexia. His parents were told by school guidance officers that the best he should aspire to was a job as a postal clerk. He overcame his learning difficulties, won a scholarship to study physical education at Sydney Teachers' College, taught High School in Australia, England and South Africa and then completed a Doctor of Chiropractic degree in Canada. He went on to establish one of Australia's most successful chiropractic practices with his wife Dr Judy Hinwood.

In his personal life he and his wife, Judy adopted three older illiterate and challenged children from Chile. The children are all in their 30s now and leading wonderful productive lives. John and Judy returned to Chile with their three children 13 years later and helped them find over 120 members of their biological family including their separated parents.

Dr Hinwood is also a Fellow of the International College of Chiropractors, a Fellow of the Australasian College of Chiropractors and a Fellow of The Australian Institute of Management, one of few health professionals to gain the distinction. He has had papers published in academic journals and was once Captain/Coach of the Danish National Rugby Team.

As an international speaker he inspires his audiences into taking practical action steps to move their lives to new levels.  His perspectives, humour, observations, insights into life and entertaining stories are from the heart and they inspire and motivate people into taking positive action steps.

John's experience as a health professional by training, successful businessman by effort and an inspiration by nature has given him an awesome array of practical tools for success.

"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle" - Albert Einstein

Compelling, frank, honest, funny, moving. I first heard Dr John Hinwood speak at a fundraising event at the Tattersall's Club in Brisbane. The charity was a World Vision associated group, On that evening he was a combination of MC, speaker and auctioneer. Like everyone in the room I was impressed by his mastery of seamlessly moving between managing the attendees, evoking emotional response by his description of the needs of the charity, and the high energy and fun auctioneering style.
