Born in Portsmouth, and lived in Weymouth and Bournemouth until the age of 7 Jon then moved to Cape Town, South Africa where he had a varied and interesting career. It started with 14 years in the SA Navy from which he resigned as a Lieutenant Commander, followed by time in the corporate world in IT project and programme management before leaving to set up his own business in this field for 13 years.

Being an avid sportsman and fitness fanatic Jon also during this time qualified as a Personal Trainer, as well as the advanced Train the Trainer course. Putting IT behind him, although not totally as he still does consulting work in the regulatory compliance field, already a cricket, hockey, golf and multi-day trail running coach, Jon then moved into the field where his passion lies and is now a Life Coach, Executive Coach, Life Enhancement Specialist, Inspirational Speaker, and Relationship Mediator.

Somewhere along the way, he managed to also write and self-publish his popular book, Can Anyone Here Sing? – Six Perspectives of Peace.
