"Unexpected in the best way. His raw and honest story prompted us all to self reflect and think about the power of perspective and grabbing the reigns on the things you can control in life, and accepting the things you can't change. He made a true impact on the teams, and spurred some wonderful and insightful conversation. Would highly recommend Jonathan without hesitation."
"We asked Jonathan to attend our 2nd conference as a motivational speaker as we had never had one before. He arrived with so much positivity and took the floor like a professional, his presentation was dark in places, but very thought provoking charged with great humour and Jonathan provided real life examples of how to get through life positively. The feedback from the team was excellent and we will certainly recommend Jonathan, which we already have!"
"Jonathan spoke with honesty and left a lot of people leaving the talk with a new perspective. His talk inspired a lot of people and there were several people who approached him after to thank him for how good the talk was. I will be booking him again in the future for sure."
"From the time I first spoke to Jonathan, it was clear he would be an inspiring speaker. His talk was funny, inspiring, honest and impactful. We will book him again; his messages are still being talked about and impact the service focus of our staff."
