Description

Join us for our third Touchstone Leadership Masterclass of 2018! There will be a free lunch, everyone is welcome.

Jon Prashar was born in West Yorkshire and was brought up in Wakefield with his Sister by his mother. His father who was a Doctor was killed in a car crash when he was four years old and from a very young age he attended Boarding Schools for visually impaired children in the Midlands.

Challenging stereotypes and pushing the boundaries, Jon is a highly skilled and humorous speaker who works passionately to promote equality in the UK. One of his proudest achievements is playing cricket for England in India although it needs to be said that this was a while ago!

Jon has had a very successful career spanning 30 years and is currently the Group Head of Diversity and Inclusion for the Places for People Group, a major neighbourhood and regeneration company. He has a background in Construction and organisational development and has worked in the private, public and voluntary sectors.

He is a thought provoking role model who has several Board roles including for Homes England’s Equality and Diversity Board, Housing Diversity Network and Leeds and Yorkshire Housing Association. He has also recently been appointed to a non-executive Board role with Bradford teaching hospitals NHS Trust.

Jon considers himself to be the very lucky owner of a working guide dog who keeps him on his toes! He enjoys real ale, rugby league, football and travel.
