Meet The Trainers

Jon Britain began his career move from farming to Learning and Development in 1999.  Whilst running an arable farm in The Fens, Jon became an assessor for the Safe Use of Pesticides, a Forklift Truck instructor and a Health & Safety instructor.  He also began teaching Business Management in a Cambridge college.

Jon quickly recognised that he was enjoying these roles more than agriculture, so he left farming behind and started a new chapter of his life in Thailand.  it was three years later as the Learning and Development Manager of Bangkok Marriott Resort & Spa that he became absorbed with workplace behaviour and people development.

Almost 20 years later Jon retains his enthusiasm for developing Management, Team and Individuals capabilities, resulting in engaged employees who take pride in their tasks and enjoy going to work.  Over the years Jon has supported the growth of many organisations, improving their People, Performance and Profits!

Punit’s overarching theme is to achieve change in the right direction by combining the plan and actions as “to know and not to do, is not to know”.


Your talents are what make you unique and can be the source of great strengths. The problem is that not everyone is able to identify them, and lots aren’t prepared to put the work in to develop them.

There is a formula for Strengths development:

✅ Talent identification
✅ Time and effort
✅ Strengths

There is a saying that ‘we don’t know, what we don’t know and up until this moment you quite probably have no idea what your talents are.

You can change that, or you can let them lay dormant and unexplored.
