Jon Ainger


Jon started his career with the CBI, working in a number of policy development roles, before moving to Andersen Consulting where he worked on strategy with a wide range of private and public sector clients.  Having developed a passion for public services reform, he spent six months on secondment at the Cabinet Office before joining IMPOWER in September 2000.  Jon pioneered our innovative work on demand management and behaviour change, and led the development of the IMPOWER INDEX.

Jon enjoys mixed metaphors, eggcorns and malapropisms and is keeping a record of the best examples from his travels in local government.  These may see the light of day at some point in the future…..
