JO OWEN is a Founding Partner of the MAC Partnership. He is the Director of Strategy and Development and co-founder of Teach First, UK, and is also a highly sought-after executive educator.
Jo co-founded Teach First as a way of encouraging young promising graduates to develop leadership skills from an early age. Teach First recruits top graduates to teach for two years in disadvantaged, inner-city schools. In its first year in the UK, it entered The Times top 100 employers list, beating 80% of FTSE 100 companies.
As an executive educator, Jo works globally across a variety of management issues. He has pioneered the use of Mapping as a way of diagnosing and solving key issues faced by management teams. Equally at ease in strategy and implementation issues, he has a particular expertise in the development of Leadership programs for top managers.
A financial services specialist, he has also created a new business bank, which now trades as HBOS Business Banking.
He was formerly a strategy partner in Accenture's financial services group. Before that, he worked for ten years with Gemini Consulting, where he was a partner and, for two years, the leader of Gemini Japan.
He is the author of two popular management books, Hard Core Management and Management Stripped Bare (Kogan Page). He is at work on a new book on executive leadership. He also writes a column on leadership for Director magazine, and his work has appeared in a number of leading publications including the Financial Times and the Daily and Sunday Telegraph.
Jo earned his MA at Queens' College, Cambridge, and his MBA at London Business School.
He currently lives in London.

...
"Welcome to the Revolution" exclaimed Jo Owen as he took to the stage at the Lewis Media Centre. His premise: that the world of management is changing and it is now more important than ever to expand your skill set to keep ahead.
Jo defines management as "the art of making things happen through other people" and, with this in mind, set about providing a history of management thinking, taking us up to the present day. He argued that, to begin with, IQ was regarded as the key determinant of being a good manager.
...
In modern business, Jo argued, managers have '"responsibilities in excess of authority" which makes it less viable to directly control people.
...
The good news, Jo claimed, is that these skills can all be taught, and he was here to do just that.
