Jo Swinson is a talented communicator both in the media and face-to-face, and was invited to speak at the TEDxWhitehallWomen event in October 2016.
A BBC Question Time panellist more than a dozen times, Jo has a high profile in the media, and had recently appeared on Sky News, LBC, BBC Radio 4, Channel 4 News and CNN International. She is an engaging public speaker, and has many years of experience leading training programmes both in the UK, and internationally.
“Jo was an obvious choice [to speak at the O2 Women in Leadership event] and spoke passionately about her experiences from both her personal and professional life to inspire the audience to think differently about how their values can help shape their career experience. Jo’s attendance undoubtedly helped to raise the profile of the event and feedback from attendees was overwhelmingly positive.”
Ann Pickering, HR Director, O2
“I thoroughly recommend Jo Swinson as an inspirational and motivational keynote speaker. Jo gave the Keynote address at the National Women in Engineering Day conference, 2015, and brilliantly set the tone for the forthcoming day’s event. She spoke insightfully, clearly grasped and was able to articulate the goals of the day, and engaged the audience from the start with her mix of personal experience and strategic overview. Jo managed to hit the right balance between identifying the problems we face in the campaign for women’s equality in engineering, and inspiring positive action to motivate change.”
