"I've worked with organizations on business strategy, income generation, values development and other transformative activity that results in positive change. I'm careful to approach any strategy by considering 3 key areas, profit, purpose and people, in equal measure.
I'm also the founder and organiser of Good For Girls, a crew of thinkers, doers, tinkerers and creative misfits who support girls to do good things!
This year I was delighted to be named winner of Social Enterprise Network Mentor Champion of the Year & Pay It Forward Awards 2013.
I'm a Head For Business Schools Social Enterprise Mentor, Council Member for Social Enterprise UK, SFEDI Gold Accredited Business Advisor, RSA fellow and Enterprise Associate for Young Advisors."
"Jo was the trainer on an enterprise course that I've just completed. She has a wonderful approach - she's challenging, gets the best out of people and does this in a way that is nurturing and empowering. She worked with a wide range of people, from different backgrounds, and left them all brimming with confidence and energy. My business simply wouldn't have started without her."Siân Jay (director, social venture)
