Change agent and consultant

Here when you need someone you can trust to accelerate progress on sensitive or significant policy delivery areas or services.

Able to work intensively and deliver against a tight timetable.

Examples of work undertaken includes:

  • facilitating a management team awayday after a major restructure
  • reviewing performance management arrangements
  • designing and delivering development sessions for newly elected council cabinets and their management teams
  • reviewing corporate governance
  • designing a leadership programme for children’s services across partnership agencies for a major metropolitan council


Carers’ Resource is a medium sized charity supporting carers and other vulnerable people across Bradford, Harrogate and Craven districts.  As part of our strategic planning Jo facilitated a senior management team away day for us.

She was very professional in her approach, taking the time to explore with me what I was wanting from the session.  She then designed and delivered an engaging programme which enabled us to achieve our desired outcomes.  Her approach and style caught the imagination of colleagues and helped the team develop ideas for our future strategy.  Team members commented on what a positive day it had been and how well Jo had facilitated the session, supporting everyone to explore and express ideas whilst keeping the overall task in focus.  I am happy to recommend Jo to partners in the Yorkshire area and beyond.  Chris Whiley CEO
