He has over 35 years of successful business experience, and has spoken on big stages around the world, using his humour, expertise, and charm to shift audiences to the next level.

Jonathan has helped business owners get to grips with how to grow their business in today’s digital world. Jonathan’s talks are based on real life examples, where he has helped his clients overcome their challenges and conquer the digital media space.
