Jon – Organisational Design specialist

"My years of senior-level retail leadership and academic interest in psychology put me well placed to lead on organisational design."

"I help right size leadership teams in the rapidly changing commercial world. Using detailed role study data and my diagnostic reviews I am able to make robust, evidence-based recommendation to create the right platform for a business to achieve their goals - always remembering that leaders are more than just the most expensive role; they're key to aligning the whole organisation around the delivery of the business objectives."
