An inspirational speaker with expertise in the delivery of outstanding social care, crisis intervention, and excellent leadership, Jonathan Cunningham MBE is a highly successful entrepreneur and business mentor.
Born in Liverpool, the eldest of four siblings, Jonathan entered the armed forces after attending The Royal Military Academy of Sandhurst, where he served for 16 years during an impressive career that saw him complete active service in Northern Ireland, Bosnia and Iraq.
In 2004, whilst attending the Joint Command and Staff College, Jonathan’s life was changed forever when he suffered a cardiac arrest.
Having made a full recovery Jonathan was promoted to regional Chief of Staff over the NW Army; here he designed and rolled out an audacious new plan to engage with disaffected youth in deprived city areas - the project was a huge success, and it was this accolade that saw Jonathan awarded an MBE by her majesty the Queen in 2010.
Having served in the armed forces for much of his adult life Jonathan made the tough decision to leave the organisation that he had previously loved and served, entering the NHS as a senior director before founding his own highly successful care consultancy – STORM UK.
From here Jonathan Cunningham Global was launched, and in addition to speaking at conferences and events throughout the country, Jonathan is regularly asked to offer his expert opinion by media outlets on important social care issues.
Jonathan’s passion for life is evident. Live life to the full, exercise every single day, love people and do things that scare you!
Life is about putting back, adding value and always improving people’s lives.
Life is short - let’s do it!
