The Viral Video Guy


Jonathan is TEDx speaker, award winning investigative journalist, highly respected brand storyteller and Guerrilla marketer.

Jonathan has influenced and inspired key people from major global brands (2XU, Sigma, HTV), as well as professional sporting codes and leading education-based institutions. (AFL, Netball Australia, RMIT)

After turning his attention to the dissection, research and creation of viral videos, he developed his recognised “VIRABLE ™" formula.

With an understanding that brands are the broadcasters of the future, Jonathan sought out the holy grail of social media - How to trigger and control the most powerful validation an audience can bestow on a business or brand - clicking “SHARE”.

“Cracking the code” - the art and the science behind why some stories and videos ‘spread' became Jonathan's passion and obsession.

With decades of storytelling and attention-grabbing experience on prime-time television, as well as 5 years in advertising and digital marketing and armed with an appetite for finding answers, Jonathan couldn't resist the quest to unravel the modern mystery behind the force that drives mass consumption content.

The result, a formula, full of viable marketing strategies extracted from researching more than 1200 viral success stories. And the best part…anyone can apply them.

Jonathan’s presentations empower the audience with a real world advantage as he reverse-engineers the elements in the “VIRABLE ™" formula so that entrepreneurs, brands and influencers can apply their newfound knowledge to the new media world and immediately enjoy real results.

Jonathan's interactive presentations and workshops are high energy, packed with passion and delivered by an entertaining professional.

Jonathan was a presenter at our inaugural Where Neuron's Connect Conference. We hired Jonathan due to his vast knowledge of storytelling and connection and to keep our audience engaged and entertained. The feedback we received from his presentation was outstanding as Jonathan kept energy levels in the venue high, delivering positive outcomes for audience members in the process. I would recommend Jonathan highly, in fact his performance was so good we had to re-book him for one of just 8 spots on our TedX Docklands 2019 line up. If you're after an engaging professional speaker to have an impact on your audiences, this guy is the best emerging speaker talent I’ve witnessed in years.” TedX Docklands
