Jon provided invaluable training to myself and my marketing colleagues (in the MEAC – Middle East, Africa, Caribbean and Turkey – division at Pearson) through a one-day workshop, Digital Marketing in a Day. His knowledge, pre and post-workshop support as well as understanding of the needs of our business ensured the workshop was a huge success and very inspirational.
Rachel Turner, Pearson Education
Jon is without doubt the most knowledgeable person on social media I know. What’s more, he is able to convey that knowledge in a concise, accessible way that is invaluable to non-experts. He is passionate about the powers of social media and lives and breathes his expertise that is fascinating and inspiring to watch. I would always trust his advice on all things digital and can recommend him without hesitation.

Jon ran a two hour workshop for 30+ publishers at the Inpress Digital Conference on social media marketing, in June 2010. The bespoke training session he delivered was perfectly pitched, with a great balance of information, advice and useful tips. All the attendees left inspired and motivated.
Rachael Ogden, Managing Director, Inpress
Thank you so much for coming along to our conference and for your fantastic session. It sent people home, buzzing with ideas as to what they need to do next, which is exactly what we need for a conference session. Our feedback was extremely positive all round but yours was singled out…
Marion Sinclair, Chief Executive, Publishing Scotland
Jon was instrumental in launching our social media strategy and was a major influence in our holistic and campaign focused approach, using a clearly defined framework to channel our internal resources effectively. Since his initial work with BIG, which included a series of social media marketing workshops for our corporate and regional communications teams, social media channels have become an integral tool in our awareness campaigns and outreach activities.

The video clip we commissioned from Reed Media has turned out to be our most successful to date. Jon’s direction during the filming resulted in a clip that was both professional and entertaining. Within a few months of uploading the video onto YouTube we received in excess of 10,000 page views and this number is increasing significantly every week. We’re simply delighted with the results.
Sanphy Thomas, Head of Books Marketing, SAGE
Jon is very knowledgeable about the social media revolution and you can see he is very passionate about the possible benefits to businesses. He is great to work with and gives excellent suggestions, very well prepared and articulate. My team really enjoyed his workshop and continue to consult with him.
Shannon Moore, former Director of Marketing, Pearson Education
Jon has completed a number or market research projects of varied complexity and investment for me. He has consistently delivered work of extremely high quality, from the amount of intelligence gathered to the presentation and interpretation of results.
Sadie McClelland, Head of Market Development, Pearson Education
Jon recently did some market research for me on a couple of very high profile, high investment projects. The report he produced for both projects was absolutely spot on – thorough, sales focused, qualitative, well interpreted. I’ll be using both reports to inform the strategy of the projects going forward.
