"Jo has been fundamental to the development and delivery of our stakeholder strategy and communication plans. Her local knowledge has proven to be a real asset and is smoothing the way to a successful delivery of this high profile project."

- Peter Jones, HS2 Enabling Works Contract Programme Director

 

I’ve known Jo professionally since 2010. She is a pleasure to work with, always going the extra mile to make partnerships a success and delivering to the highest standards. 

Jo is a highly-skilled public affairs professional and has an excellent ability to connect clients and decision makers on the issues that count. Jo has a huge amount of expertise leading campaigns and building support and advocacy for a range of issues including transport, engineering and infrastructure projects, diversity, young people, skills, accessibility, technology and beyond.

Jo comes up with innovative and creative ways to engage and inspire stakeholders from a range of sectors including Government, Parliament, business, industry, charities and communities. An example of this is when Jo worked with the ACE centenary celebration in 2013 to demonstrate the value to communities across the UK of Government investment in London’s transport infrastructure.

 Jo is hugely passionate about improving the diversity of the transport and engineering industries to reflect the diversity of our country. She has done loads of fantastic, and award-winning, work to attract and retain women in transport and can provide expert advice on initiatives that will have an impact.

I’m delighted to recommend Jo’s work in these areas.”

Jo’s background in public affairs for the transport industry was hugely helpful to Better Bankside in building support and advocacy for transport infrastructure and public realm schemes to help us towards our vision of making Bankside the best neighbourhood in the world.

Jo is a huge advocate for diversity and women on boards and I know she is passionate about making a difference in this area.

Jo is highly professional and a pleasure to work with. I’m pleased to recommend her.”
