Jo has led large cross-functional teams to deliver high profile initiatives and large programmes of work. Her passion has always been working alongside and collaborating with other people – both the teams she has led and the many organisations, community groups and people she has worked with to create joint projects and campaigns.
Throughout her career Jo has developed a strong ability to foster talent in others by focusing on their natural talents and strengths. She has developed and led targeted development programmes with the teams she has led that focus on building organisational capability and competence. Originally a primary school teacher, Jo has never lost her love of learning and development.
Jo is enthusiastic, reflective, supportive and fun. She thrives under pressure where things are fast-paced and filled with ambiguity. It’s this love of challenge, along with her passion for working with and supporting others that makes her a great coach and an excellent communications leader.
