After graduating in European Studies, Joanna worked in an administrative capacity for Merchant Bank SG Warburg before moving to Paris in the mid 1980’s to work first for the ‘Chateaux’ division of Hampton & Sons and then to the Paris office of insurance broker Sedgwick PLC. Here she supported the team involved in consolidating communication and HR policies across the organisation’s newly acquired European offices.
On moving back to London, Joanna joined a City PR firm and gained the Stock Exchange Registered Representative status. As Director, Joanna led the firm’s investor relations and professional services work, advising both PLCs and private companies on their PR and IR strategies.
Her involvement with CEDR began in 1989 when, working with her client Eileen Carroll (largely accredited with putting mediation onto the lawyer’s agenda), she assisted in what was probably the first major awareness campaign of mediation. Ten years later, Joanna gave up her post as Director of a City PR firm to become a consultant assisting CEDR on building its marketing, business development and communications activities.
As a co-opted Governor to an over-subscribed Primary School, Joanna has successfully defended many admission appeal hearings.
