Hi, I’m John

John Edward McGraw helps newcomers and businesses connect across cultures to succeed in less time and pain. He is the founder of Hiyaku Coaching, which is Japanese for “leap” or “rapid progress.”

John's passion for culture came from living and working in Japan for several years. He became a certified intercultural trainer to help newcomers and Canadian businesses reach across the cultural gap to succeed together.

John has worked with organizations such as JVS, BMG-Brilliant Minds Group, and the Toronto Business Development Centre’s Start-Up Visa Program.

He is also the host of the Intercultural Insiders livestream show and audio podcast, encouraging immigrants and other international guests to share their cross-cultural experiences.
