My guest grew up on an Air Force Base, his father was the Officer Commanding of a Supersonic Jet Squadron.
He started his flying training in the Royal Air Force, transitioned to the University Air Squadron then left to pursue other interests. He settled down again in his late twenties and qualified as a flying instructor. His love for aerobatics coincided with his love for learning.
He became an aerobatic champion, an MBA alumni and set up an Aviation University in Toulouse. He ran this University in collaboration with Airbus and Dassault Aviation for many years.
Jon later became an academic at the Graduate School of Business, at the University of Cape Town. This paved the way for his current position. He set up and is now the Dean of the Henley Business School in Johannesburg.
From a small team of 5, Henley Business School now offers a variety of Executive programs and has twice won, Best MBA program in South Africa.
