Working at Speed is different every day, which is what I love. Different clients, different projects, different challenges, different opportunities. See CV

Jo's CV

As Managing Director, it’s important to me we have an collaborative, dynamic team spirit which enables us to innovate and be creative for our clients. Building on the strengths of the team, so they can fulfil their potential and in doing so deliver the most engaging brand experiences for our clients and their customers.

We’re a diverse team of individuals – and it works. We are all committed to Speed’s strategic success and one another. We’ve got great clients and we are passionate about delivering top quality work that gets results.

With over 25 years’ experience working in agencies, 15 of which was spent in London agencies, I thrive on bringing strategic business and branding knowledge to projects to help determine marketing and communication requirements – ensuring all deliverables are appropriate and effective, whether for a B2B or B2C audience, online or offline.

Over the years I’ve led projects and campaigns for Sony, Cable & Wireless, the Department of Health, Department of Transport and The Fairtrade Foundation launching their “Make Fairtrade Mainstream” campaign. Since joining Speed I’ve loved working with a range of companies – global companies like Coloplast, Pioneer Foods, Cummins GT, Advanced Handling, the WIL Group, the Pozitive Energy Group – charities like Kidney Research UK – local companies like Vero HR, Peterborough City College and many more.
