Here are some kind words from some of the lovely people I feel completely privileged to have worked with:

“Jo is unsurpassable and indefatigable ... in nearly two decades as a member of parliament I have never met anyone as energetic, imaginative or effective at promoting a cause.”
— The Rt Hon John Bercow MP, Speaker of the House of Commons
“Jo’s session was a brilliant opportunity to discuss some big issues, and inspired us to approach story collecting and telling much more deliberately. It demonstrated that people really do recognise and empathise with those who genuinely feel the gravity of the stories they are telling...a brilliant four hours.”
— Kurstin Finch Gnehm, Head of Individual Giving & Patrons Programmes, Royal Academy of Music
We had an amazing day yesterday and came away buzzing with enthusiasm...it is unbelievable what you have achieved at The Royal Latin and how you have achieved it. We’re now fired up with confidence that we can achieve some great things here too. Thank you so much for sharing with us an abundance of helpful tops about your experience and successes.
— Jenny Cornell & Chris Pyle, Lancaster Royal Grammar School
“Jo has made a tremendous impact on the culture and ethos of our school. She has been instrumental in showing that development, in a school context, should focus on the value of philanthropy. This philosophy lies at the heart of her work and it is this mission which inspires students, parents, staff, alumni, governors and business leaders alike. It has been a great pleasure to see how Jo’s positivity, efficiency and drive have harnessed the talents and commitment of so many people in our community.
Any school wishing to realise similar goals will benefit greatly from Jo’s input. “
— David Hudson, Headteacher, The Royal Latin School
Your ideas are inspirational, and the wealth of experience and expertise tangible. Thank you for sharing.
— Ian Colling, Headteacher, Magdalen College School, Brackley
“Jo has the commitment, drive and tenacious determination to make the ‘impossible’ possible...
I’m so inspired by her.”
— Wendy Munt, Be Inspired Consulting, RLS Alumna
“The 600 Campaign has not only offered students a state of the art learning environment, but an insight into a much more meaningful journey: a true example of how ‘giving something back’ can be so worthwhile ...a sense of philanthropy has been fostered in school and Jo has inspired me personally to think about the best way in which I may give back in years to come.”
— Athena Tzallas, RLS Head Girl, 2016
“Jo has tons of energy, humour and enthusiasm, combined with exceptional leadership qualities. She has created a fantastic team and empowered so many people to contribute.”
— Hilary Baxter, Communications & Events Specialist, RLS Parent
