Taking comedy seriously - the business of making people happy. Jon is co-founder and CEO of The Comedy Crowd - empowering the world’s comedy creators. He's a former astrophysicist and qualified Chartered Accountant, who worked for more than a decade with Ernst & Young before taking the natural step into comedy. Jon has advised startups including a 3D printing business in Moscow, and started the Comedy Crowd as an aspiring writer who saw the potential in working with a global community of talented creators. Jon’s favourite subjects include comedy, entrepreneurship, creativity, and sports, with his support of Liverpool FC a natural extension of his scouse [Liverpool] roots. The rest of his free time is spent being a Dad to a young son. Great episode with Jon, outlining his career pivots and showing anything is possible. Look forward to what the Comedy Crowd will do in the future. Enjoy!

The G&T Sessions
We cover G = Growth from a Personal & Business perspective, as it is a fascinating and compelling topic to share stories and experiences, and T = Technology, something that is everywhere and is firmly here to stay...asking the questions about what does it mean, is it for good, how do we harness it and ensure it helps our future.
So, in the G&T Sessions Podcast, we are speaking directly to ourselves, when we were younger, not as wise as we are today, how could we know how transformative that Technology would affect the world .... And know how getting your personal growth and mindset in order, is a key building block and enabler to any organisation or business idea you want to scale.
We're going to try to take you, the audience, on a journey through the stories and lessons of gifted and talented people who have written their own personal growth stories, dealt with amazing peaks and character building valleys, but have learned and carved their own path to making their own history and future.
Given Tech now integrates into so many areas of our life and many people see this as their new path for opportunity, we will also discuss Tech with our guests who are growing, advising, supporting, coaching and innovating in and around technology and so the founders, co-founders, entrepreneurs, CEO’s, leadership teams of tomorrow will know how to realise their dreams, find and unleash their own ideas to become unicorns, build new markets, new businesses & disrupt the world for the greater good.
