I’ve known Jonathan for some 12 years now and have appreciated his relentless enthusiasm and dedication to get the job done. His thinking is innovative and persuasive. Throughout the years that we have worked together our meetings have been productive and we’ve made significant advances during that time.

Jonathan lives and breathes everything business. He has a real passion and strong commitment in supporting other like minded people drive their businesses forward. He’s been there, done that, bought the t-shirt and the experience he has gathered along the way is invaluable. I’ve personally worked with him on many projects over the past 9 years and from being 18 he has mentored me through my successful career to date. We worked with local start up businesses at Entrepreneurial Spark in Leeds and this is where we had the best opportunities to see growth in new brands. He’s a great person to have on your team as the glass is always half full with Jonathan around.

I have known Jonathan for several years. As a former pupil, he has been an outstanding supporter of Hymers College. More recently, we have, as a school, used his company, Strawberry, to assist us with our marketing. It soon became clear to me that Jonathan is an extremely knowledgeable and skilled marketer who has enabled us to look at ourselves in a totally different way. Through his guidance and connections, we were provided with a formal review process which was very enlightening and which has allowed us to develop an entirely new approach to the marketing of the school. Jonathan has worked closely with us to help with interpretation of the information we gathered and putting together an innovative marketing strategy, with which we are delighted. In particular, he encouraged and led us in developing greater use of social media and more professional written materials.

In my opinion Jonathan has been an extremely valuable asset to the school and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other organisations.
— David Elstone • Headmaster, Hymers College
