Jonathan started his first business in 1992 selling subscriptions for Accountancy TV, a joint venture of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and the BBC which created continuing professional development content. He has been involved in the education and training industry ever since, acquiring EBC in 1997, which he transformed from a provider of training videos to a bespoke e-learning company. In 2007 he joined Epic as interim managing director and after acquiring the company with Andrew Brode in 2008, he led the transformation of the business from a custom content e-learning company into Learning Technologies Group, which today is a global, full-service digital learning company.
