As a teenager, Jonathan was one of England’s brightest young talents and was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson to play for Manchester United. He spent four years at Man Utd and during this time played extensively for England Youth Team under the guidance of Sir Bobby Robson. Injury curtailed his career, enabling Jonathan to study at Loughborough University, where coaching became his driving passion.
Jonathan continued his career in sport, through his work with one of the UK’s leading sports agencies. Here he worked closely with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Peter Schmeichel, Andy Cole and Kenny Dalglish, and he now draws upon this experience to inspire individuals, leaders and teams to be the best that they can be.
In his presentations, Jonathan shares what he has learnt from his three careers and focuses on the key aspects that he believes are fundamental to sustained success over a period of time.
