Jonathan Hill - Founder and Chairman
Jonathan is an inveterate traveller who has visited well over 100 countries. He is fascinated by the complexities and sometimes simplicities of the world - and has seen a great deal of poverty along the way.
His professional career spans more than 25 years in the fields of journalism, corporate communications and international affairs - with experience ranging from non-profit and commercial start ups to the front-line of multinationals.
Born and raised on Merseyside, Jonathan holds an MA (Dist.) in Marketing Communications from Middlesex University and a Professional Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing, awarded by the UK's Chartered Institute of Marketing.
He's the author of Marketing in the Dark, which examines how multinationals communicate in the "media dark regions" of developing nations - royalties from which help fund the charity.

Richard holds a degree in politics from the University of Liverpool and a Postgraduate Certificate in Communications Management from Thames Valley University.
