Thom Jones

Thom Jones has lived in more than a dozen countries and delivered training in over 70. Having been a truly useless student (and proving it frequently by failing all the exams he was set) he started his professional life as a waiter before going into teaching, then management, before going freelance. Formerly part of the senior executive at Embassy CES before becoming Director of Operations USA for Studygroup he returned to the UK to work with Trinity College London and now works with a variety of organisations on a wide variety of projects. He is principal of Oxford College International summer programme for SBC and runs his own company: Brock Solutions Agency. He presents regularly around the world on a range of topics and is a guest lecturer at four universities. He is also a freelance trainer in business and management. 

Ten years ago he cycled from the UK to Turkey, travelling through 11 countries. As a charity fundraiser, he arrived at IATEFL 2015 in Manchester having cycled from Frankfurt in only five days, accompanied by round the world cyclist Julian Sayarer. Julian got there first.

 He is rubbish at maths. His mother thinks he is great.
