“Jo works in the capacity of social media manager for English Folk Expo – the annual showcase for folk, roots and acoustic music, held in Manchester.  She has proved to be organised, thorough and forward-thinking, but most of all has proved to have a real feel for creating a successful online presence which is inclusive, welcoming, portrays the right message and takes time to ensure it is well-informed and timely.  I would recommend her work to any organisation wanting to upgrade their interaction and engagement with the public!”

Terry O’Brien, English Folk Expo

“Working with Jo helps us to fully interrogate our work in a way that elicits the ‘why’ and the ‘who for’ in a very straightforward and tangible way. Our conversations strip back any superficiality and focus on the very core and essence so that we can communicate the work to key stakeholders, funders and audiences alike. 

The holistic nature of Jo’s input also helps inform evaluation from the very outset making it intrinsic rather than being an afterthought or bolt on.

I cannot speak highly enough of the work that Jo has presented to us so far and we have just started a three year journey on our latest project which we are thrilled to have Jo on board with once again.

Jo’s work on audience development and engagement has helped Red Ladder achieve positive outcomes on three substantial G4A’s and the aforementioned Strategic Touring ACE award.”
