Jon Boys - MinsLM, MinsSMM
Jon was born to be a team player.
He grew up in the farming community, and was taught very early on about the benefits of dedicating yourself to something bigger than yourself and working within a team, from his father, a former British Army Major.
Having discovered the camaraderie and team capabilities of his home colleagues, Jon decided to investigate this further, joining the Royal Air Force, serving in Cyprus, and personally witnessing the carnage and ravages of an island at war with itself, serving as a lesson and an experience of just what people are capable of – good and bad.
Experiencing PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), and witnessing it in others at the same time as the untimely death of his mother, led Jon to be drawn towards learning a greater understanding of psychology, as well as wanting to gain a better understanding of his own spirituality and the benefits of meditation.
Following his exit from military life, Jon has enjoyed a host of positions, growing from purely technical, then advancing into senior management positions. He has managed R&D, purchasing, sales & marketing, eventually running 180 staff within a multi-million dollar, multi-cultural, international business, travelling extensively.
After progressing to the top of his field, Jon still found himself wanting to help less fortunate people wherever he went, so the jump to the personal development community was a clear and obvious one, within which Jon:
- Started and developed three successful training and development businesses.
- Worked for Chris Howard on his sales team
- Trained extensively and uses NLP
- Trained and attained coaching accreditation through two international coaching institutions
- Trained as a rock climbing instructor
- Has been certified by the International Institute of Firewalking, as a trainer.
- Runs the UK’s # 1 business in non-franchised virtual business support to Executive Coaches, with his wife, Sue.
- Is an Executive Director of Wellbeing and Healthspan Organisation Ltd, a ‘not-for-profit’ social enterprise.
- Trained in the Release Technique
- Was an associate with the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme
- Uses his musical and guitar talents to inspire and affect people to change.
Jon has two clear passions: to live a phenomenal life, and to do so, by helping as many people as possible reach out and grab their potential, through us.
He lives this vision, with his wife Sue and through their two adult children, both professionals.
Jon has enriched the lives of thousands of people, since 2004, and now concentrates on helping all of our corporate and individual clients reach their potential through our own trainers and our extensive group of associates, handling all of our operations as well as performing himself, at our events.
His previous clients have been top sports people, business and medical professionals, people with career issues as well as adults and children with learning difficulties, and he continues to inspire these groups with his dynamic, caring and wise interventions. This is why in 2009 Jon became a trustee of IPCCL (Inner Peace Centre for Conscious Living), a Letchworth based charity providing restorative yoga and meditation classes to the sick and infirm.
Since qualifying as a Firewalking Instructor, with his events, Jon has helped various charities raise over £120,000, and he is committed along with the rest of our team to continue doing so.
Jon relaxes with regular yoga and meditation, riding his mountain bike, scuba diving, writing and performing music with his friends, reading and power-walking his dogs Angus and Poppy.
Jon is determined to help you and indeed, all our clients to live a fulfilled life, and is an extremely valuable member of our team. He utilises his enormous strength as a team builder to create success for individuals, for our corporate clients and for our affiliates and he looks forward to working with YOU!
