Jon Dean

Managing Director

Jon started his career on a two-year Management and Leadership Development Programme with Inchcape, a retail motor-franchise group, after which he was promoted to Sales Manager within the Land Rover franchise at the age of 22.

He subsequently moved into an Area Manager role in the motor-vehicle finance industry with Chartered Trust (now Black Horse Finance) where he managed dealer group and manufacturer relationships and completed his Finance and Leasing Association (FLA) examinations in commercial and financial practice.

His first business venture came when he set up a specialist technology leasing company. This established several high-level agreements with technology vendors who offered the company’s services to commercial clients either directly or through resellers, to help them to procure their solutions.

After a successful trade sale of that business, he spent a short while delivering consultancy and training by individual request before realising there was a significant gap in the market for high quality, flexible and usable leadership and management training.

He established Impellus in 2008 with a set of principles around every training course and qualification; they should be enjoyable, understandable, and deliver real and immediate organisational results. These principles run through every programme the company delivers to this day.

Customer testimonial

The range of subjects and topics covered by the Impellus courses gave me the opportunity to consider new strategies to use and develop within my management role.

Having the opportunity to discuss each topic with other individuals from a range of industries and backgrounds helped to provide further context and allowed me to consider alternative

ways to approach and deal with both people and situations.

Thank you Impellus for the  positive experience.

 

Una Stewart , James A Cuthbertson Ltd

Completing the Impellus courses allowed me to mix with many different individuals from organisations working in different industries. This made break-out rooms and discussions very interesting due to the range of skills, knowledge, and personalities present throughout the courses, and it was fascinating to hear different ideas and points of view.

Thank you Impellus!

Louise Neilands Customer Service & Sales Advisor, James Cuthbertson Ltd

Really enjoyed the course especially the Organisation Leadership and Strategic Thinking and Decision Making courses, which I have been able to use and contribute within our business already.

Lorraine Brown , ICS Roofing

I really enjoyed the challenge of putting myself in another's shoes and contemplating situations in which I could use the skills of each course. It was also fascinating to hear the different views and opinions of others on the courses, and the expertise of each of the instructors. Thank you very much Impellus!
