Jonathan Ward Icon 4x4
Welcome back, you lovely people. It’s been a crazy four weeks for me so sorry the knowledge bombs haven’t been dropping as thick and fast as normal.

Whatever you’ve been getting up to I hope life is good. This week’s guest is the amazing and super talented Jonathan Ward. Jonathan is the founder director and lead designer at Icon four by four. It’s hard to tie Jonathan's strengths down to any one thing as he has become great in so many capacities.

If you want to learn about starting a business from a hobby, how to run a business and motivate a highly skilled workforce, and produce an amazing product.

I have a huge amount of admiration for the vehicles that come out of Icon but also how he makes it all happen.

So tune in and get ready for a conversation with one of the best in the automotive industry.
