“Jonathan is a consistent, effective and insightful advocate of the procurement profession and in supporting organisations across sectors to increase their capability and return from their procurement and supply chain functions. He has a compelling and knowledgeable personal style and is an effective presenter across all levels and experience.


His experience in working with diverse organisations in building their procurement competence ensures he is able to quickly understand the wider business context and therefore clearly articulate the challenge, opportunity and relevancy of procurement within each specific environment.


He is an engaging and credible presenter who works with audiences of multiple backgrounds and experience to ensure everyone understand the contributions available from procurement and in defining the journey to achieve this. “   

Andrew Brightmore FCIPS,

Director & Head of Procurement Advisory KPMG (Australia) 2013  

“Jonathan is an inspiring presenter and business advocate who has a wealth of knowledge and experience in global business and marketing.  He is passionate about his work and “driven” to achieve success. 

In his workshops, he quickly builds rapport, gets straight to the pressing issues and then proposes a range of workable-solutions for people to think about.  These workshops are rewarding valuable events and much-appreciated by participants.”

Roy Barton PhD, President,

Institute of Value Management Australia  2015

David Henchliffe FCIPS, Chief Procurement Officer, Santos until 2017 

“Jonathan is an excellent presenter who can capture his audience and share his knowledge with ease. I’ve seen him work and be effective in a room of a 1000 people as well as a room with 12 CPOs , who were not shy to challenge him. Jonathan is cognisant of his audiences’ needs and will adapt his style accordingly, thereby maximising the value he offers to each group he works with.” 

Andrea Gregory FCIPS, Director, Group Procurement, Fonterra – New Zealand  2013

Over the years the attendees feedback on his work has been universally consistent. He is engaging, focussed and adds enormous value for his audience. His grasp of the procurement subject is second to none and the wealth of knowledge he brings to bear is always impressive.   

Jonathan’s insight, knowledge and style make a difference for everyone who hears him present.”
