Professor Gareth Jones is a keynote speaker whose career has spanned both the academic and business worlds. His insightful talks on business change and turnaround are fascinating and cover topics on promoting creativity as a source of competitive strength, strong leadership, and inspiring an effective organisational culture.

Gareth began as a University academic in Economic and Social Studies at the University of East Anglia before moving to the London Business School, where he joined the Organisational Behaviour Group.

During this period he directed the School’s Accelerated Development Programme. At this point the attractions of a “real” job in business proved too great and he joined Polygram, then the world's largest recorded music company. Appointed as Senior Vice President for Polygram’s global human resources, his responsibilities covered more than thirty countries.

In 1996 he reverted to academia when he became the BT Professor of Organisational Development at Henley where he also served on the Board of Governors. His most recent job was as Director of Human Resources and Internal Communications at the BBC. He is currently Visiting Professor at the Instituto de Empresa in Madrid and at INSEAD in Fontainbleu. He is also a Fellow of the Centre for Management Development at London Business School.

Gareth’s research interests are in organisational design, culture, leadership and change. He has published several books, including “The Character of a Corporation: How Your Culture Can Make or Break Your Business” co-authored with Rob Goffee and “Why Should Anyone Be Led by You?”, also with Rob Goffee, and published by Harvard Business School Press.

Gareth serves on the Editorial Advisory Board of People Management Magazine. Gareth's considerable academic insight and practical experience contribute to his excellence and credibility as a keynote speaker.
