With over 15 years of experience as a career coach and management consultant, Jon is the Founder & Managing Director of Kwantum Leap Group, and also an external career advisor to the world’s top business schools including TRIUM, INSEAD, Cambridge (Judge), ESSEC & HKUST. In addition, he is a faculty member at Singapore Management University, teaches Management Communications at the National University of Singapore, and has also taught at the prestigious Shad Valley Program, Canada’s top program for leadership and entrepreneurship.

Originally from Toronto, Jon spent 8 years in the Consulting practice of one of the largest professional services firms in the world advising clients in the financial services industry, retail, consumer goods, manufacturing, hi-tech and the public sector, most recently with their Global Future of Work Centre of Excellence.

Currently, he’s fascinated by the idea of applying Design Thinking principles to individuals in their careers. This human-centric approach helps you further your empathy, and forces you to not just sit back and research options, but to get out there and take action. He believes this approach will be a game changer, especially as everyone continues to think about the Future of Work, and re-imagine how careers will take shape in the future.

Having had the fortune to live and work on 3 separate continents, Jon now calls Singapore home. Outside of work, he is the founder and a Board Member of the CUTC Foundation, a non-profit organization focused on technology education and awareness. In Asia, he recently founded Audacity, a movement that provides role models and encourages youth to not be afraid of following the road less travelled during their careers.

Jon holds an MBA from INSEAD and a Bachelor of Mathematics (Honours – Co-op) in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo. In his spare time, you can find him playing Ultimate Frisbee in and around the island.
