Jon’s worked as a designer at games companies including Sony and Electronic Arts, and as a professional stand-up comic for a few years, so he knows how to engage and motivate. Occasionally he can be funny too.
Now, as a coach and speaker, Jon teaches effective communication, using his personal skills to both show and tell. He has delivered communication skills training for Cambridge University and for a variety of tech companies and software developers.
A unique combination of insights from the worlds of computer game design and stand-up comedy enables even the most introverted of his clients to deliver presentations that enhance their professional persona and both delight and motivate their audiences.
"Jon was an excellent coach and mentor, and his depth of experience in public speaking was clearly evident. His feedback was always precise and extremely useful, and I was able to put it into practice successfully in a presentation shortly after for visiting students. Jon's attention to detail, positive approach and light-hearted and approachable manner were very motivating and instilled confidence in myself and other members of the team." Jack Griffin – World Art Manager, Criterion Games, Electronic Arts
“Jon made the unbearable, bearable! And not only in the training sessions; I now feel more comfortable envisioning future public speaking engagements” Leigh Partin – Business Manager, Bridge Partners, Cambridge
