Bio

When asked to define what drives him, Jonathan quickly states ‘making things happen’. Transforming ideas, driving projects, finding solutions, connecting people and adding value is key for him. In 2015 Jonathan opted for change from his latest retail venture and embarked on some quality time off, a daily training regime and evaluating a number of investment prospects. Starting early and whilst still at university, Jonathan has substantial experience in management with a hands-on multi-disciplinary approach in setting up and running businesses. His skills in communication, leading teams and creative spark can add value to clients, top management, board of directors and shareholders. Jonathan has worked in various sectors including event management, TV production, marketing, online and retail. In September 2018 Jonathan published his first book titled #Forty, be the change. This was the catalyst to also pursue his passion for coaching and get certified as a cognitive behavioural coach in London. Currently living in Malta, Jonathan has also lived and worked in Sydney and New York.
