In the former this included Chairmanship of the National Museum for the Royal Navy and President of the Royal Navy and Royal Marine Charity. In the latter he took non-executive directorships of cruise company Carnival Corporation and the British arm of the American defence contractor Lockheed Martin, and more recently with Survitec Group.

It is an honour to welcome Sir Jonathon as chair of our advisory board (…) His knowledge, expertise and insight will be extremely valuable in helping us develop how we can enable our clients to address their daily challenges more effectively.

Managing Partner, The Moment

I have spent my working life tackling many of the challenges that face The Moment’s clients (…) I know very well the pressures that large business and growth organisations face as they respond to core and emerging requirements, whilst ensuring their staff have the necessary skills to deliver.  I hope to be able to bring this experience to support the ADL team with some constructive thoughts that will complement their creative ideas.
