the situation

Over the next few years the world's best leaders, companies and cities

will have to return to the drawing board and reimagine everything.


Those who don't will be a horse-and-cart in an electric car world.

Those who do, and who then successfully deliver their corner of the world, will flourish.

"The pandemic is a portal. We can walk through it with our dead ideas.

Or we can walk lightly, ready to imagine another world"

“Jonathan Holloway is the best kind of coach. He creates a safe and creative space in which you can bounce ideas, tell your own stories and hear what you think. The idea of a ‘coach’ virtual or otherwise can create the idea that you might be overly directed but perhaps the greatest gift of speaking with Jonathan is that he leaves space for you to come to insights on your own but frames things in such a way that you get there sooner than you might have. He is an exceptional and insightful listener. He’s generous and also infuses the whole experience with great wit. It’s a rare kind of conversation and one I’d highly recommend to help you focus your professional experience and aims.”

Michaela Kalowski,  Producer for ABC and live events

“Jonathan is a dream to work with, a force of nature.  Passionate, funny, highly effective

plus an accomplished artist. He's got great guts and artistic vision"

Kate Miller-Heidke, Singer-songwriter

“Jonathan Holloway’s lessons and reflections will re-focus your team on what’s important In perhaps the most engaging and entertaining way you’ve experienced for some time.” 

Kelly Grigsby, CEO Wyndham City Council:

“His passion is contagious, and is bound to inspire staff, supporters and audiences alike.”
