Johanna Thompson, Training Academy Executive at IOM3

‘We hired Jon to cover a section of our Management Training Programme when our regular trainer was taken ill. Not an easy task as she is a tough act to follow. However, Jon did so excellently. He engaged all the students really quickly and they couldn’t sing his praises loud enough. He is now on my speed dial if we find ourselves in need again!’.

Maz McCarroll, H&S Manager at Airbag Team Ltd

‘Feedback from the staff was positive with the skills being learned being used on the shop floor. Jon made every effort to deliver a differentiated and inclusive learning environment and answered questions in a clear and concise manner.

Jon was able to provide a relaxed learning opportunity and used various techniques to deliver the required curriculum requirements while maintaining the interest of the learners involved. I would recommend Jon to other businesses requiring training’.

‘Since completing an Everything DiSC Productive Conflict training session with Jon I’m able to kerb my destructive behaviours so conflict is now more productive. As the manager of four busy departments, I recommend Jon to improve your workplace relationships and results too.’

Deborah Scales, Employment Solicitor at Cartwright King Solicitors

‘I was very impressed by Jon’s ‘Productive Conflict’ course. It was delivered with pragmatism, humour and commercial acumen. It was also mercifully free from cliché. The root cause of most disputes I advise on as an employment lawyer are due to the failure of individuals to communicate with each other in a constructive way. I highly recommend Jon’s Everything DiSC Productive Conflict (and other team development courses) for your business’.

Jon delivers a great talk on Unconscious Bias thought-provoking and leads to a good discussion’ He takes the time when presenting to allow for questions to be answered or discussed held on a point through out the presentation. He is truly a professional at all times and knows his areas. I would have no worries when it comes to recommending Jon for delivering training.’

I recently met Jon through local networking groups and he kindly offered to speak at our Trainers Hangout Network. Jon’s knowledge of his subject on Unconcious Bias was excellent but, most importantly, his style was engaging, energetic and evoked brilliant discussion from the group. I’m really excited to hear more content. Thank you for educating us, absolutely brilliant.’

All the best again’

‘I attended the Key Account Management course with Jon and it was really insightful and helpful. He is a very good and approachable mentor with extensive sales experience, always able to listen and help further. I really recommend taking one of his courses.’

Mark-Brown Mark Brown, The Intuitive Coach

Jon is the type of trainer that you’d want on your team. Throw a subject at him for delivery, and he’ll conduct his in-depth research, and deliver a course that is full of insight, intrigue with actionable steps for participants to take.  He is rarely blindsided by a topic and thrives as a learner himself.

I have been on several of Jon’s short virtual sessions, and I’ve always found them to be interactive and with the learner in mind. His passion lies in helping businesses and their employees thrive together, by considering the enjoyment one takes from their work, and how their work can become more enjoyable to aid engagement and profitability.

Having Jon on your training team or attending one of his courses makes so much sense to me, as I’m sure it does to you too.’
