Here is what some of the past students
have said about us:
"I would like to take this opportunity
to thank you for all of your support, time and
advice during the Entrepreneur Summer School
of 2004. I really appreciated your frank and
“straight to the point” advice and
comments and believe you had a significant impact
in changing my business approach." Jason
Neal, CEO, Omniglobe
"I would fully recommend Jon to anyone
looking for impartial advice. That's not to
say working through the issues Jon raised was
easy - far from it in fact!. But his suggestions
were always thoughtful and resoundingly practical.
He has a great ability to present complex interelated
issues in a logical way which speaks to his
years of entrepreneurial experience" Matthew
"It is without hesitation that I would
recommend Jon as a mentor to other aspiring
entrepreneurs, both personally and professionally.
Wihout his guidance it is unlikely I would be
where I am today and for that I am truly thankful."
Peter Ward, CEO, WhereAreYouNow
