Jonathan Gifford


I am a business author and ghostwriter.

I have five books about business and leadership published under my own name. I have also co-authored four books with leading management consultant Dr Mark Powell on organisational change and our concept of Performance Thinking, exploring what business can learn from the performing arts. These books have been variously translated into Chinese, Russian, Thai, Indonesian and Korean.

Most of my ghostwriting work is also around business and leadership—though I have also written books on how to buy private land for property development and on the use of venture capital techniques to drive innovation in American politics. I’m happy to take on any non-fiction project.

I have written the first volume of the autobiography of a leading businessman and adventurer, to be published in late 2022, and am currently working on the second volume.

I write a great deal of shortform work, typically in the form of op eds, blogs and articles to promote my own or my clients’ work.

My previous experience was in national newspapers and magazines. I was the publisher of BBC Worldwide’s BBC Music Magazine and the launch publisher of BBC History Magazine.
