In memory of Bob Jones – 1954-2015

It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Bob Jones, a Director of IDG and one of its leading lights.

Bob was with IDG almost from its inception and had a massive influence on the way we think as a business. His insights on Leadership, and particularly on Followership, which he passionately believed was of equal or even greater importance in organisational development, will have left an indelible mark on all those who were privileged to hear him speak. His style and approach to his work was direct and unashamedly uncompromising. “That will do, won’t do” was an oft-heard comment to clients and staff alike.

He was a vibrant personality with an infectious enthusiasm and he will be so sadly missed by his many friends at IDG and the thousands of people he touched through his work. However, his reputation and his legacy will live on at IDG .

Bob was 60 and died after a short illness. He leaves a wife and 2 adult children. If you wish to donate to Bob’s favoured charity, ‘Combat Stress’ please click here to go to his ‘Just Giving’ page.
