Jon has a unique double culture. The first ten years of his career were spent on the frontline of social change, dodging bombs in revolutions, helping create global movements and developing the ideas and strategies that raised hundreds of millions of dollars for good causes.
For the last decade he has been on the cutting edge of applying the purpose and meaning from the world of social change to business, helping Fortune 500 firms build brand value, grow their revenues, attract more loyal customers and increase the productivity of their workforces through purpose.
A serial entrepreneur, Jon keeps close to the fast-changing realities of the start-up world. He is a board member and advisor to a number of social-tech firms, the co-founder of Oreka Solutions – an ag-tech firm revolutionising agriculture through insects – the author of two books and a regular lecturer at universities in Europe, North America and Africa.
