Paralympic After Dinner Speaker

Away from my training, I am dedicated to becoming an inspiring figure, not only in athletics, but also in helping raise the awareness of living with an impairment and what it takes to push past the limitations. From my experience as a therapist, I have developed skills in a multitude of different speaking ventures, ranging from school visits to after dinner presentations, inspirational talks to motivational workshops.

If you would like me to appear at your event, please contact me on the contact page of this site or find me on one of my social media channels.

‘Jonathan went down a storm at our event and was our perfect speaker. He got the tone of his talk totally on message, was so easy to talk to and interacted so well I forgot he was our guest at one point!’ – Emma Peachy, Chartered MCIPD, NWLEICS

High Performing Teams – Good to Elite workshops

History has shown that high performing successful teams in sport and business share common characteristics. Results matter, and it is the training done on the lead up to a competition that delivers results. I know. I have made, and continue to make the transition from good (a County level basketball player) to elite (an international athlete).

The principals of elite sport are so closely linked to business. You need to win that contract. You want to make more of that business partnership you have. But it may be that you seem to be losing customers and you don’t know why?

The change needed may be small, but the impact on performance outcomes will be significant.

I came across Steve Elkin – a business coach and Whole BrainTM practitioner – in 2014, when things where not going so well for me. Steve helped me see how I could improve… and it worked!

We now work together spending time with businesses to help them go from good to elite. We have a number of programmes designed to introduce the international recognised Whole BrainTM thinking model – which has been proven to generate a 66% improvement in performance – helping your team do things better and work alongside each other in harmony.

Have a took at the testimonials below from companies we have worked with already. If you would like to enquire about these unique workshops, please use the contact page on this site.

‘A really great day. The team still talk about it and use the stuff the guys did to this day. I have absolutely no doubt that the work the team did with Jonathan and Steve was key to us winning numerous bids’ – Mark Farrah, Director Balfour Beatty


‘I came into the business as Managing Director with it losing customers, with turnover down 50% on the previous financial year. Our processes seemed good, and with us having a unique place in the market we should not have been in the position we were. Steve and Jonathan spent a day with our management team showing them new ways of thinking, and then working with them to understand how we engaged with our customers and invent a brand new customer engagement model. The result is that 2016 is our best year of trading and we continue to grow. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the guys’ – Ian Rippin, Managing Director CSA Group


‘Jonathan and Steve had a real impact with my team. I wanted to explore new ways of doing things and the way the guys engaged with us was truly great. They worked us hard, but it was fun too. I am using them again – I cannot recommend them any more highly than that!’ – Peter Robbins, Director Interserve Consulting
