Gareth Jones

Eduzine Global Limited Media Director; Eduzine Consulting Limited business director, consultant and mentor.

Gareth is Media Director at, an organisation which promotes, supports, showcases, mentors and celebrates young achievers across the globe. Born in Kowloon, Gareth grew up in Hong Kong and Singapore before settling in the south of England as a teenager. The Canton legend surrounding Kowloon (City of 9 Dragons)its 9 surrounding hills & dragons and their pearls of wisdom, has fascinated him from a young age. Therefore, it is no surprise that Gareth became heavily involved in supporting young people, especially young entrepreneurs, with his own pearls of wisdom.

A project accounting professional, who is passionate about supporting and promoting young people whilst helping those in need, Gareth has over 30 years' experience working directly with young entrepreneurs and also with other organisations that support young people. Gareth has developed an original business strategy around achievement and successful personal & professional profiling. This focuses on why we do what we do, rather than simply what we do.

Described in 2013 as one of the 'Three WHYs Men' (alongside Simon Sinek and Paul Dunn), Gareth is a firm believer in the rewards of passion and compassion above profit alone. Gareth believes that business success is far more achievable through embedding your own positive beliefs and values within your business profile, thereby connecting with the right people in the right way.
