    Jonathan has made a significant contribution to the implementation of the commercial and marketing strategy of Maudsley Learning both offline and online since launch. The branding work he has managed in my opinion is exceptional. He is versatile, efficient, proactive, unafraid to voice his opinion when required and hungry to both learn more from others and take more responsibility when required.

    Gert Demmink
    Risk & (trade, AML & sanctions) Compliance specialist

    We hired Jonathan's services when we were setting up a couple of seminars in Rotterdam & London on export controls compliance management, together with OCR Services of the US. First of all: Jonathan is a great person to work with. Very personable indeed and a factor that we could rely on. Faced with strict deadlines, Jonathan keeps carrying on without ever forsaking. Results were just phantasmal. Second: we truly admire his marketing concepts, from strategy to execution! Jonathan is a person we'll definitely want to business with again. We fully recommend him and his work!
