“Jon Jacob possesses a razor sharp wit, an unusually large knowledge of the media and an unnerving ability to pick up on and then drill into, the smallest level of self-doubt. This was the most productive and revealing time I have spent on professional development in the last year.”

Managing Director, August 2018

How I work

My style is unorthodox. I disrupt. I dress down. I love the joy derived from oblique strategies.

I’m not your friend. I’m your critical ally.

You set the agenda. I challenge, push, and cajole in pursuit of your goal. And I’ll provide you with accountability.


Who I work with

I’ve worked professionally as a coach for five years. During that time I’ve teamed up with individuals and groups in higher education, government, tech, PR, arts and broadcasting organisations.

I work with any level of individual within an organisation. I also work with people on a private basis. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a chief executive, a director general, a regional lead, or a team member at the beginning of your career. What’s important is that you’re someone who wants to find a solution to a challenge.


I’m not only a coach

Importantly, I fuel my coaching practice with content production. I’m a digital content producer in the world of classical music, a videographer and a podcast producer. That means I’m bringing a real-world authenticity to my coaching practise.
