Jonathan is participating in an afternoon panel Effective preparation for board meetings at 13.30 on Day One.
Jonathan is a founder of Independent Audit Limited. The firm was founded in 2002 and is now one of the UK’s leading board reviewers. As well as working with boards, it also provides advice on high-level governance systems such as audit and risk management. Over the years it has worked with about half of the FTSE100 as well as a large number of other organisations of all shapes and sizes, both in the UK and overseas.
Jonathan has been involved in much of the work done by his firm, either as project leader or in a QA capacity. Interesting learning experiences include getting halfway through a board review at Northern Rock before it was prematurely ended owing to unforeseen circumstances and acting as an expert witness for FCA Enforcement in a case involving the governance and risk management of a well-known wealth management firm. Fortunately, he’s also had the opportunity to learn from a large number of clients who do things well.
Before founding Independent Audit he was a financial services partner in Price Waterhouse, where his experience included being one of three partners sent out in 1992 to open the Russian practice. During his three years there the firm grew from 12 to 650 people, but more importantly he also learned cross-country skiing, the approved way to drink vodka and where to take his car for a service (Helsinki).
Jonathan has been a non-executive director of a foreign-owned bank in London and is a regular writer and speaker on corporate governance.
