Working with Jonathan Hughes of Wordzup

Jonathan Hughes is a ‘creative catalyst’ who has run workshops, designed advertising promotions, and written sales copy for the likes of Accenture, McDonald’s, UNICEF, Microsoft, and more. He works a lot with graphic designers and web designers to ensure their projects run smoothly and elegantly for their clients.

He came to see me when he was feeling stuck, and needing a fresh pair of eyes…


He says in the video that he has been missing a systematic element to his business. I helped him build a new framework so he could grow his business to the next level.

If you think I could help you get unstuck, get in touch for a free, no obligation call.

I got some lovely feedback…

“Awesome. Funny, entertaining and educational. Loved the story and how it led into the life lessons.” – Vanessa

“You took my breath away. Gobsmacked.” – Adnan

“Loved the passion you exuded. Killer ending too.” – Russell

“Very confident and wonderful to listen to.” – ‘A guest’

If you’ve never been to a Toastmasters Club, I’d highly recommend it: there are many thousands around the world that generally meet twice a month. Guests can attend for free. It’s the perfect place to learn how to be a better speaker. Search for your nearest one now online! 🙂
