Att berätta sin historia
Jon Liinason is present and engaged in all that he does. And best of all, he is an astute listener, who is interested in hearing what other's have to say and in finding a way to integrate the ideas of all people involved. He is skilled at bringing people together, integrating differences, and underlining each person's strengths. When working with Jon, I think everybody goes away feeling better about themselves and about the world in general.
Memorable for me was talking to Jon about his interests. He has both broad and in-depth experience in many areas, and is skilled at finding ways of bringing these different interests together in his work and life. He is definitely a renaissance man of the twenty-first century.
Dance Artist & Educator
Jon has an open mind, is sharp and always willing to get the most out of each project collaboration. He can work with calm regardless of external circumstances and has an ability to uplift the people he works with and see their strengths. One side of his personality that I'm impressed with is his ability to listen to and respond to criticism without turning defensive. On the contrary he´s sincerely interested in what people need and then evaluating and working forwards. It is always very fun and progressive to work with Jon.

Jon's creativity knows no boundaries and has meant a lot to us in Skaraborg in the urban development project Cities that stand out! An example of a memorable moment during this project, produced by TILLT, was the movie interview Jon made with me in a car riding through a village, documenting the European project Creative City Challenge. The interview was conducted in a very unusual way, as was the study visit to Gröningen, the Netherlands, which was among the best trips I've done.
Head of Culture
A trip with Jon always offers refreshing surprises. He consistently refuses to follow old templates and already stepped-upon paths. Instead, he shifts the perspective, takes a new road, and just like that You have discovered something new as a fellow traveler.
As a tour leader, Jon is creative, curious and constantly enthusiastic. He will never give You a charter tour guiding experience.
Jon is a very responsive person, with a unique ability to create commitment and feelings of joy. He is driven and takes initiative, but at the same time good he´s good at taking rests for hearing others' thoughts and opinions. I feel that Jon is genuinely interested in other people's experiences and in learning from them.
I got to know Jon when I joined a choir he directed. I can have difficulty in taking an active part in groups, but I immediately felt relaxed in the permissive atmosphere that existed there. Jon has the ability to see others' strengths and highlight them in a natural way. Although Jon was the "leader" of the choir, I think of the choir as a collaboration, where I truly felt co-creative in what we produced together. My opinions were taken seriously by Jon, he saw with what I could contribute and made me feel safe to share my experiences.
Jon has an unusual ability to explain the added value of art and culture in business, using a terminology that people in companies understand and feel confident with.
