Who is the speaker?

Jonathan Bowman-Perks is an entrepreneur who in 2010 set up and still runs his own leadership business. His calling and vocation is helping other leaders like you to survive and thrive in the age of overload.  He has had more than his fair shares of ups and downs, including a brief period of poor mental health. On reflection, he has learnt far more from his failures, than from his many successes. He has a rich and varied background of experience, which he draws upon to help you with your own challenges, as you struggle to succeed and make your way with establishing your own profitable business. Jonathan's distant ancestors were Goldsmiths and as a Freeman of the Goldsmiths’ Company, he cares deeply about the company and our trade.

He learned much from his time as: British Army Officer, PwC Consultant, IBM Leadership Coach, Managing Director of a small Plc, Business School Visiting Professor and Self-Starting Entrepreneur.  He is a leadership authority and author of both Top Tips for Inspiring Leaders; The Little Book of Wisdom (2017), plus Inspiring Leadership: Leadership Lessons from My Life (2010). He also contributed to the book published by his wife Leigh: Inspiring Women Leaders (2014). All profits from their books go to their charity the Inspiring Leadership Trust helping vulnerable women and children in London, Kenya, South Africa and around the world.
