John Mollura is a professional speaker who went from being a literal rocket scientist to a multi-award-winning luxury portrait photographer. His unique career path provided life experiences that most only dream of. John spent decades leading a variety of teams; some that landed missions on Mars and others that protected the pilots of the most advanced fighter jet in the world, the F35. He now provides world-class portraits and photographs that have been featured by National Geographic, multiple Fortune 500 Companies, and some of the biggest names in music.
However, John also knows first-hand what it feels like when walls of achievement and elite-level accomplishments fail to fill a void inside yourself.
While his career was rocketing to uncharted heights, a personal tragedy forced him to reevaluate everything he thought he knew. Over the years, as the proverbial scales fell from his eyes, John began to see the world, and himself, differently. He knew there was more to life than having an impressive corporate career.
In 2017, he chose to stop living behind a fragile veneer of perfection and left engineering to pursue photography full-time. It quickly became apparent that John could provide much more than a "nice picture"; he could create empowering images as tangible evidence to his clients' greatness.
As John rediscovered his true-self and his heart became more fulfilled, he longed for others to have the same feelings of self-acceptance and empowerment. John is a naturally engaging communicator who inspires positivity and creates immediate rapport with anyone he meets. John educates and empowers his audiences during his keynotes on Unmasking Imposter Syndrome and believing that Positive Change is Possible.
As a keynote speaker John specializes in connecting with audience members who are accustomed to performing at elite levels. Especially for top performers, it can be debilitating to have negative thoughts cluttering your mind, leaving you feeling unfulfilled. This makes you incapable of reaching even higher performance levels.
John incorporates research with stories from his own life to give you tools to break out of the prison of your limiting beliefs and begin living life as your truest and most-contented self.
