I’ve known John Mikton for over 9 years now and he’s been a huge help and a mentor to me as I launched my company AppsEvents. I wanted to talk to John on the podcast as he’s a really interesting guy...A lot of listeners don't know about the world of ‘International Schools, but John has used them as a way to live and work quite literally across the World and raise a family along the way.

John is one of the best people I know at building up his knowledge and connections to become an expert in a specific niche and we talk about how he did this.

He also is a sought after trainer and conference speaker so we get into how this came about. Finally, John has been involved in dozens of conferences across the world so we discuss some things that he recommends that work really well.

In this interview we discuss:

  1. His background and how he got started with International Schools
  2. How he used this job to live all around the World, including Tanzania, Tokyo, Prague, Zurich, Luxemburg
  3. Building his profile as an influencer. Why he went ‘deep not wide’ and build up a huge name as someone on the narrow field of International School Education Technology
  4. Working as a trainer and speaking at conferences
  5. We discuss some of the events we have run together and what John has seen work well with conferences
