"Over the last 20 years we have invited many successful people from all walks of life to talk to our sales team on a variety of topics. At our last meeting Dr. Jon delivered 2 x 2hr sessions of cutting edge and highly relevant material in what honestly felt like 30 min. I have rarely, if ever, seen someone command the complete attention of a room for so long in such a meaningful way. The magic of Dr. Jon’s material is that it is simple and instantly applicable in both business and personal settings. You will not be disappointed if you decide to work with Dr. Jon."
Michael Scully, Britevox Co-founder
"I particularly like the Tougher Minds approach because it is scientifically based with real practical application. Using neuroscience to help explain how to break habits and build resilience really resonated with the data focused, empirical hungry analysts whilst the interactive activities and helpful hints engaged the pragmatists in the room. The programme really has something for everyone! Jon is a knowledgable and relatable facilitator, bringing his expertise to life to help others with theirs. The benefits of Jon's approach has been clear, a more mindful, positive, resilient group of employees! I would not hesitate to recommend Jon and the Tougher Minds programmes."
Head of Learning & Development
"Life can be increasing challenging and stressful for people. This can negatively impact both well-being and performance at an individual and organisational level. Dr Jon Finn and his team provide simple and practical training based on cutting-edge scientific insights. This has helped our people to better understand the challenges of modern life and made it easier for them to be their best at work and in life. This makes it easier for our business to achieve its goals and be successful. The feedback we receive about Tougher Minds training is fantastic. I can strongly recommend working with Dr Jon Finn and his team. Jon has delivered some brilliant workshops for our colleagues at Aon."
Senior Learning & Leadership Development Partner
"During times of business challenge and economic stretch, Jon worked closely with our businesses to understand how he and his team could apply some simple but highly effective learning interventions to allow our people to challenge their way of life. The Tougher Minds sessions that we ran for our Financial Services division were gratefully received by all with visible outputs as soon as colleagues left the room. I would highly recommend Dr. Jon Finn and his team to anyone wishing to challenge work ethics, performance and wellbeing."
