"Jo worked on our team at Bristol Academy of Drama as our drama facilitator but is so much more than that. She joined as we are growing and her enthusiasm and willingness to go beyond what is asked of her has been a god send. She not only runs fun and engaging classes and workshops but actively engages with the business to help us grow and develop."

Claire Moulds, Bristol Academy of Drama

"I called on Jo's skill-set, asking them to build confidence in my new team and develop activities and practical tools to engage young people. Jo delivered beyond my expectations, installing a sense of excitement for the role. The team said how much fun they had, that they have not laughed so much for a long time, and had gained some great ideas for their work. Jo was great at making them feel comfortable, and engaged every member in the process."
