Take Time to Slow Down During Your Travels

John Ayo, ND is a Professional Speaker, Trainer, Author and Traditional Naturopath, focused on inspiring and empowering professionals to stay energized, healthy and balanced while traveling. He was also a speaker at the 2019 NEC and brought a wealth of information for attendees to enjoy.

Prior to forging a career in natural health, John spent a major part of his career working in the sales industry, where he employed his outstanding skill sets, initiative, problem solving abilities and positive attitude to lead and achieve remarkable results. He led the team that closed the largest software deal in the history of IBM (of over $1B), earning several commendations and a high reputation. After two decades in Corporate America, John began to have health issues (due to stress) that couldn’t be addressed by the traditional medical model of “fixing symptoms.” This led him through a journey of discovery and reassessment, with a strong determination to lessen stress and evoke a more balanced, grounded and healthier self. It also spawned a unique desire to inspire others to live a life of well-being and stay in health, especially when they travel. He has taught more than 4,000 people in 26 countries about his secrets to better health on the road (and back at home) with fabulous reviews.

John is ambitious, charismatic and self-motivated, always bringing his energy, knowledge and commitment of excellence to accomplish his aspirations. As a result of his extensive travel experience, he wrote a book called Travel Balance, that helps individuals to stay energized, healthy and balanced while traveling. John holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (magna cum laude), a Master’s Degree in Business Administration (MBA) and a Doctorate in Naturopathy (ND). He continually spends countless hours researching diverse health issues, with a strong desire to find solutions that can impact the lives of people, especially as it relates to business travel. John feels truly fortunate to have found his calling as a natural health doctor and he’s passionate about making a difference.  https://travelbalance.net/
