Testimonials Interim CDO

What clients say about me

Sarah May Hill

Jon is supportive in style and is quick to establish rapport with others. He asks good questions of others and works effectively within a team, establishing norms quickly. Jon is an experienced change agent as well as being experienced at the C-suite level and is an excellent communicator. We would work effectively at the Board environment, supporting others to transition shift and find new perspectives. He has a sharp eye for digital issues and has a lot to contribute on organisational change, which are great skills to have in these uncertain times.

Enjoyed working with JP and sharing his passion for data driving decisions and optimisation at all stages of the customer lifecycle. Very much a person who likes to drive change and not afraid to push back and take tough decisions for the larger good. JP is a commercially astute person who studies the context of things and how they impact on the digital performance. Will miss the thought provoking conversations with JP.


I enjoyed working with Jon while he undertook an extensive transformation of the Digital function at the Royal Mint. He led the team with a clarity of vision and purpose, bringing together brand, customer experience and the commercial needs with great results. Often, he had to push through some difficult programmes to the benefit of the organisation in a short timeline. His passion and ability to simplify complex tasks through storytelling made him well liked and a respected leader within his team and across the business. I cannot speak highly enough of him.

I worked with Jon at the University of East London. He was the interim Chief Data Officer and my manager. I had lots of helpful 1:1s with Jon. He is excellent at brainstorming problems and solutions, being open to different team member’s challenges/perspective and providing support and recognition (without micromanaging). He is pretty exciting to work with as he always has a new product/software to demo that me and/or the team can benefit from e.g he showed me the perks of using google trends. Finally, I think his personable, enthusiastic, efficient nature means he is just generally great to work with so I would definitely recommend him to other organisations
