Born in Surrey, Jonny attended Hampton School before studying at Oxford University.  

Whilst at Oxford he rowed in three successful Boat Race crews and was President of the University Boat Club, Jonny competed in the British rowing team from 1989-1999, and of course alongside his teammates, including his brother Greg Searle, they won a Gold medal at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona... and if that wasn’t enough, they went onto to win the Bronze in the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. 


Jonny undertook a series of impressive career transitions post the Olympics, developing a career as a private practice lawyer from 1993 In 2000 Jonny retired from international rowing and in 2002 to work for international entertainment company, Modern Times Group, where he worked as General Counsel and Company Secretary. 


From 2015, Jonny has focused on his work as an executive coach, presenter, and facilitator, working with senior executives and groups to encourage personal and business growth in pursuit of their goals.... and I’m sure he is going to inspire us all this evening too!
