Jo was Britain’s first female fast jet pilot, flying the Tornado GR1. As a combat ready pilot with 617 Squadron, the Dambusters, she experienced operational tours of duty and took part in large international NATO exercises around the world. She worked in intelligence and is a fast jet instructor.
As an inspirational speaker, her tales from such an elite world offer alternative insights into personal development, meeting challenges and succeeding in the face of adversity.
Jo’s military experience is multifaceted: technical; professional; managerial; political. Add 9 years of e-commerce experience and management consultancy in both the public and private sector, an MBA, Associate Lectureship with the Open University Business School and flying air cadets as a volunteer pilot for the RAF at weekends – and no wonder she is so successful in combining management and leadership theory with her unique practical experiences to present a humorous, inspiring and moving range of speeches.
She is also the author of two books: Energize (Hamlyn) and Energy – 52 Ways to fire up your life and become an Energy Angel.
