I’ve previously written about John McDonnell who has launched and marketed some very successful spirits brands (Seagram’s, Patrón, Tito’s) in over 145 countries. As a result of his learnings and achievements during 35+ years of professional life, McDonnell has become known as a global thought leader, offering new and transformational perspectives in his presentations at industry conferences. He has shared his insights in a TEDx talk at Suffolk University and he’s an author for Forbes.com.

McDonnell’s accumulated global wisdom has also made him an acclaimed Guest Speaker for diverse corporate and academic audiences. Ed Kelly, President of American Express Publishing, has praised McDonnell for the “solid value” he offers his listeners in an “incredibly engaging” way.

Here is a recent profile of John McDonnell, written by Brad Balfour and published in the Irish Examiner (USA). Although McDonnell grew up in Boston with roots as Irish as they come, you will now be reading about a true citizen of the world.
