Jonathan Phair is a corporate trainer specialized in delivering training in areas of cultural sensitivity, creative thinking, change management and business English.
Jonathan grew up in the multicultural metropolis of Toronto, Canada. Both his childhood and his experiences living, working, and traveling abroad, have produced a culturally sensitive and open minded individual. Jonathan’s first venture abroad was when he went to Shanghai in 2006 to take part in a Mandarin language exchange program at Fudan University. After falling in love with the city he decided to stay to pursue a career in Asia.
Since then Jonathan has had the opportunity to work for companies involved in language instruction, business development, strategic marketing, and direct sales. Most recently he finished a two year contract as the Training Coordinator and Case Analyst for the Canadian Consulate General in Shanghai. While in this position he also pursued a career in corporate training; working with companies such as Samsung and Winnington Project Management to develop a curriculum that would best suit their needs. These experiences in the post graduate career landscape have taught him that effective communication is an invaluable skill. Clients can expect him to work with them to meet their training needs.
