JP is an engaging and entertaining speaker. The Audi Australia management team recently invited JP to present his key findings from the International CES in Las Vegas and what we received was a short and sweet executive summary with clear and insightful information about this key event, which spoke directly to our senior leadership team with just the right amount of detail. The presentation was thoughtfully developed with engaging themes designed to draw a smile from a hardened audience, and did just that. We thoroughly enjoyed it and walked away with a clear idea of the key trends presented at the event. We’ll definitely invite him back!

JP was absolutely loved by our audience at Vivid. He MC’d the event with grace and humour and really tied together all the presentations with business relevant outcomes. JP also did a keynote speech on the day about creating an ideas culture at work that was riveting. The audience couldn't get enough of him!

We always enjoy an audience with JP – he brings creative colour, true consumer consideration, a geek-tech savviness, and a flair for story-telling to any room. We took the opportunity to have JP share with key stakeholders in our ASOS global team the key outputs from the annual CES in Las Vegas. His review was entertaining, informative, & considered. It was the perfect way to get a first-hand account of the highlights of the show from someone whom we trust plus have it delivered in a relaxed and collaborative environment. I’ve got no doubt JP would provide an engaging, creative & interesting delivery & point-of-view whomever the audience and whatever the topic. He is a true thought leader.
Jo Shapland, Country Manager, ASOS Australia
Technology moves at such a rapid pace these days it often feels impossible to keep up with. Your presentation really inspired us to rethink how we work with technology. It was all great but I especially enjoyed how you unpacked the latest technology trends and made them useful for our business. The office has been abuzz with new ideas and innovations ever since you left! Thank you very much.

Jonathan was part of our speaker line-up at our conference, SAGE (Secrets of Agency Excellence) which featured some of Australia's leading agency bosses, strategists, creative directors and client services directors. Jonathan moderated a session on strategy and planning which was one of the most well attended sessions in our conference. He steered the panelists through the main issues impacting strategists and planners with a great command and knowledge of the industry. I would not hesitate to invite him as a speaker to any future event we may hold as the biggest organiser of events in the media and marketing sector in Australia.
Camille Alarcon, Content Director - Events, Mumbrella
What a clever guy! This is the 3rd time Jonathan has hosted our annual AHL conference. He really owns the room from the start and his large-scale workshop techniques are amazing. This year he conducted a giant brainstorm session with our entire company of 250 people at once! I’ve been to a lot of conferences over the years and I’ve never seen anything quite like it before. It was a big task but amazingly JP was able to lead the group and spend individual time with almost everyone. What I found most impressive was JP’s ability to bring our creative ideas back to tangible commercial outcomes. Really impressive stuff.

It takes a lot to grab and hold the attention of a room full of highly talented, creative lighting designers and their friends. Especially when the drinks and conversation are flowing in equal quantities. But that is exactly what highly regarded advertising executive Jonathan Pease was able to do at the inaugural illumni infinity awards in March 2013 at Sydney's Boutwell Draper Gallery (The infinity awards are dedicated to celebrating the unlimited creativity of lighting designers around the globe). JP silenced the hum and through storytelling delivered a precise, entertaining, interactive presentation that engaged with the audience from beginning to end. Entitled 'How to have big ideas' it contained colour, facts, stunning visuals, personal anecdotes and humour. He really was funny. The evening was a huge success due in no small part to JP's input.
