John Sikkema

John Sikkema is a business entrepreneur, author and thought leader, who is passionate about motivating leaders and organisations to discover their purpose and achieve their dreams and vision.

Leader, speaker, philanthropist, and author of Enriched re-defining wealth, John is the Chairman of Halftime Australia, a values-based executive coaching organisation addressing the growing hunger and need amongst Australian business leaders and owners to pursue more than success.

At 49, as CEO and largest shareholder of the financial planning group Garrisons (now called Genesys) and Funds Management company – Synergy Capital Management, John successfully sold the business to a Packer backed listed company Challenger. He had transformed the small company he started in Tasmania into a successful franchise business with 65 offices across Australia. Yet, it was his personal transformation that remains his most satisfying and rewarding achievement.

Today, John serves on several boards and is passionate about inspiring and empowering business leaders to discover their life purpose and make the 2nd Half of their lives better than the 1st Half – by turning their business and life into a living and lasting legacy! John is also actively involved with Empart (formally Compassion for India) globally, taking business people on leadership trips to North Ind ia in a truly grounding and life-changing experience.

John penned ‘Enriched : Re-defining Wealth’, largely in response to frequent requests from seminar participants to share more of his story and journey. John and his wife Sue live in Bayside, Melbourne, and have four adult children.
