Jon has been passionately leading change in the UK for Strategic Partnerships for the past four years since recognising the gap of where most organisations currently work at and where they want to be. He has created the proprietary SDBP® certificate and training programme. He has led the Strategic IT Partner Forum, a bi-annual conference that provides thought leadership, CXO level insight and practical application to 95 delegates in the UK.
Jon continues to write about and research Strategic Partnering, especially in the context of Digital Transformation. He has a top tier global corporate client list who subscribes to his coaching and workshops - recognised for their integrated, practical and implementable approach. Well over 300 delegates have attended one of Jon's workshops and events over the past 5 years.
Delegates on Jon's workshops appreciate his candour in bringing to life his experiences of working as a leader and manager in sometimes very challenging corporate roles that help audiences reflect on how they work and what they could do differently in order to step-change their own performance and that of their organisation.
Jon is responding to the sustainability challenge by leading the digitisation of these workshops so that they can be accessed remotely at a time and pace that suits Delegates, thus reducing the carbon footprint. Delegates who successfully complete these workshops and assignments can gain the SDBP® Practitioner certificate.
An ex-Deloitte consultant, Jon is fluent in French, married to an Italian and whenever he is not building the business, he is a keen yachtsman, property developer and amateur investor. Jon uses his own business as a platform to innovate continuously and he is an early adopter of cryptocurrency. He keeps track of the Insurtech and Fintech industry.
