Who is Jane?

A seasoned communication professional who had a career start at the BBC where I learned the benefits of difference in effective, collaborative teamwork.  The attributes that ensured we got live programmes such as Blue Peter and Tomorrow’s World on air.  I learned how to manage and influence the influencers and I also learned the value of the people who actually do the work!

Along the way I produced many award-winning movies and communication strategies, led complex, creative and international teams and encouraged organisations large and small to think more about how to engage employees than simply transmit messages

A values dilemma – or the choice to follow the path of most resistance – led me  into the world of Ethics and Compliance.  A world I inhabit today and one in which I am still unique as a communication professional.  I am voluntold to speak truth to power and with my coaching and consultancy I guide clients through the sometimes tricky aspects of creating, communicating and embedding values and values-based behaviours.  

Crucial to this is helping leaders to understand the state of their organisation’s culture, and more often than not this is not welcome news.  Primarily because there is a direct correlation between a leader’s actions, behaviours, decisions and their impact on the way things are done around the organisation. 

Supporting leaders to better understand the worlds that they are creating and what they can do about it is what gets me out of bed.  I fundamentally believe that to look for the good in people and to help them discover what that is, is far more productive than constantly focusing on what they’re just not very good at. 

My consulting and coaching work has been going on for over 30 years now and most recently the clients I have worked with have been those that have gone through some considerable ethical breakdowns.  Most notably they include BP, Serco, BT, Cooperative Bank and Airbus.
