Jonathan did a fantastic job at the Tesco Mobile event last Thursday. I got some great feedback from the team who found him to be inspirational, engaging and extremely interesting. He’d tailored his presentation really well and he was extremely knowledgeable and a huge asset to the agenda. Thanks for recommending him. We think he’s absolutely brilliant.

- Joanna Kinloch, Head of PR at Tesco Mobile

We brought Jonathan in to help our senior team understand how we were going to achieve more relevance in our customers’ lives going forward. Primarily, he helped us to understand the business that we are today and the business that we’re going to be in the future. He ensured we were able to get the board to buy into this ambition and then start to question whether we should go bigger or not.
I would absolutely recommend Jonathan to any company in any industry. His insight is invaluable.

- Jonathan Earle, Head of Customer Strategy & Development at Telefónica UK

Having Jonathan as a keynote speaker at our event turned out to be a recipe for success. He challenged, inspired and entertained the audience with his strong message, relevant industry examples and anecdotal quotes and stories. Jonathan's speaking style and message fitted in perfectly with the theme and atmosphere of the event.
