In detail

Formerly Britain's youngest-ever magazine editor, Jo has translated her skills as a journalist into marketing, PR and brand-building. Through her presentations, Jo now takes audiences through every aspect of growing a business - from the bravery required to taking that first step, through to the practical and emotional aspects of an 'exit' strategy - and achieving that all-important (and elusive) work-life balance en route. Jo continues to juggle her work as a journalist and author with being a brand ambassador for Green & Black's, as well as running an organic bakery and one-stop local food store and an 11-room 'boutique' wellbeing centre, in her up-and-coming home town of Hastings.

What she offers you

Jo's story is fascinating to entrepreneurs, women's networking groups and to wider business or educational audiences both in the UK and internationally. Her brand-building experience is inspirational to anyone on a 'business journey' of their own.

How she presents

Engaging and passionate, Jo never fails to inspire - and is always happy to network with attendees, offering more direct input to individuals.


She presents in English.
