As a ‘shy person in a noisy body’ Jon has had a somewhat unusual career.

His childhood ambition was to be an auctioneer so he trained as a surveyor, however a passion and energy for travel and discovering new things led him to become a DJ across Europe. It was then a natural progression to move into broadcasting, initially, pioneering in commercial music radio and then for sixteen years with BBC Radio and Television.

During this time, Jon hosted a variety of programmes from hard news to light entertainment and interviewed a vast range of guests from Prime Ministers to Corporate Heads and International Celebrities to Sporting Stars. This experience has made him an in demand host for ensuring conferences (live or virtual) are on time, have momentum and interest, and more importantly have a resilient outcome.

Success though has its downside and whilst he and his family still live in Yorkshire, England, until recently Jon spent much of his time travelling. Most of the time now is spent in his professional studio, speaking, hosting, and coaching teams around the world.

With a firm belief in ‘putting back’ he is a Deputy Lieutenant for West Yorkshire – England, Freeman of the UK Guild of Entrepreneurs, Vice-President of  Northern Ballet Theatre, a Governor of York St John University, and uses his compering and auctioneering skills to raise large amounts for several charities.

We are all spending far more time online than we ever thought we would. So how do we make the most of it. Jon Hammond brings insight and passion from over 30 years in front of the cameras and microphones to inspire your team to raise their online bar.

How to Make the Camera Love You …

You may feel that sometimes talking face to face with colleagues can be difficult, but what if you can’t see them? How do you create the same level of connectivity when your audience is hidden? In this online seminar/presentation, Jon Hammond brings the skills of ‘working’ a camera to life with insight, stories, and humour.

Why It’s so much easier not to….

At times of intense change, is often feels easier to stick your head under the duvet and wait for the world to return to normal. Realistically this is not going to happen soon! So how do we inspire our teams to take on the challenge of communicating in a new world and grasp the opportunity. Jon Hammond takes you on a journey of discovery looking at how the corporate world can influence and persuade any audience by making a few simple changes.

Jon is a pleasure to work with, not only a ‘master of his craft’ in respect of his expertise in developing individual communication and presentational skills, but immensely personable with a great sense of humour and integrity. A number of colleagues, including myself, having worked with Jon, have been hugely impressed by his expertise and ability to get the very best out of people. He has that ability to focus on those key individual development areas that can make a real difference.

Jon has tremendous creativity and flair. He is able to build on ideas, and develop solutions, that you wouldn’t ordinarily think of.

National Australia Bank

However massive the crisis or seemingly impossible the challenge, Jon Hammond delivers the results you hope for. I’ve watched as he transforms people with no confidence and paralysed by nerves into confident, engaging speakers. And, above all, Jon is wonderful to work with – highly professional, understanding and supportive.


It was a great pleasure to work with you. I and my team both benefited immensely from your help in preparation for our big kick off event. The team was more confident, the messages were clearer, and the slides were cleaner. As a result, the audience was more engaged and the feedback so far has been very positive. I look forward to working with you again at the earliest opportunity.
