Jon Bilson - Director
Jon is a business and management psychologist with a unique skill mix. As a holder of an MBA with a long history of business management, he gets businesses of all sizes. As a registered psychologist, however, he also gets the people that make those businesses tick.
Over the last twenty years, Jon has been working as a change manager and coach. After several corporate State Manager roles he now works with Senior Managers to instigate cultural change that lasts, and to generally improve businesses. He’s holistic in the way he does things, looking at the people within the business, projects, developing strategy and commercial awareness, and how everything might be made more innovative. Jon’s psychology background gives him some good insight into how people and all their quirks click together, or don’t.
Jon’s commitment to young people stretches to his role as Director on the board of Dismantle, a like-minded not for profit focused on young people. It is that commitment that makes him a valuable member of the YMCA WA Board.
"Nothing is as important as ensuring the safety and wellbeing of young people. I am personally committed to ensuring that the voice of young people is heard, respected and valued and that they can be, and do feel, safe at the Y and in our community. We promote a culture of safety that enables and encourages the power of inspired young people to have a lasting positive impact on the world around us".
