Jon Boswell, Director for HAPPEN

Jon Boswell developed his interest in how the arts could contribute to other areas of life at Arts & Business, the national agency for the development of relationships between business and the arts, where he worked between 1998 and 2005. He held a wide variety of roles at Arts & Business including National Co-ordinator for its Professional Development Programmes, Personnel Manager, and Manager in its East of England office in Cambridge. Skills acquired during that time include project management, strategic development, internal and external communications, research, and training & development.

Prior to Arts & Business he developed new projects on behalf of Making Music, the national federation of music societies, after having acted as the Students Association President for the Royal College of Music.

Jon possesses degrees from Cambridge University and the Royal College of Music, and recently became a Graduate of the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development. He is a keen amateur musician as well as being interested in a range of other art forms.
