“Jonah is advising tl;dv on the entire product and design spectrum, ranging from hands-on design advice to operational coaching and people development. We started out our sessions with just the CEO and head of design, by now more and more people from the team are joining his sessions - it's THAT helpful. Working with Jonah is not only helping us think bigger and bolder, but also develops our confidence to execute across the entire team. It's really inspiring for us to experience first hand how such a seasoned senior leader still has access to a fountain of creativity as if it was his first day in design.”

“What’s brilliant about Jonah is that he is so detail and action focused. Something tech start-ups can struggle with is advisors giving general pointers, which someone then has to try to interpret. Jonah comes with specific action points and they are laser focused and make a big difference. His huge experience means he can quickly identify a problem and come up with practical and easy to implement solutions. This has been like gold dust for us. He’s a great guy and the team love him: our CTO refers to Jonah as the Mark Ronson to our Amy Winehouse, he comes in to polish the product and make it truly sing for a big audience.”
