John Anthony, Owner

John Anthony is a former teacher, nationally acclaimed speaker and for 25 years owned Corporate Measures, a training firm that specialized in building cohesive business units. John’s work concentrated on discarding preconceptions and understanding other team members and issues, as the key to forming working bonds.

John is deeply concerned about political practices that polarize Americans and the ‘dumbing down’ effects the media’s misrepresentations have on citizens. His workshop, “Shattering America’s Trance” unravels these distortions using techniques that pull community members together behind common concerns.

John’s presentations include “False Choice, How Sustainable Development is Transforming Your Community”, “Common Core, the Transformation of American Education”, and “Understanding Dodd-Frank”. His emphasis is on presenting accurate information in a manner that encourages viewers to want to learn more.

In 2010 he created the popular news website, DidYouKnowOnline.com and broadcast “The President’s 6 Billion Dollar Coincidence”, a media presentation with over 2,800,000 views. Mr. Anthony assisted Nick Purpura and Don Laster in their lawsuit citing 18 constitutional violations in the Affordable Care Act that was reviewed by the Supreme Court. He is the author of the DVD, “Straight Talk About Planning”, the report, “Inside the World of Planning” and designed the “Planners’ Resolution to Protect Property Rights".
