I’m Joanna Watchman,

With a career spanning 25+ years, she is a trusted advisor to an impressive portfolio of global tech brands, FTSE250’s and AIM listed businesses. Joanna’s interests include:

- ESG & sustainability communications

Joanna loves to simplify highly complex topics and ideas – particularly for use by non-native English speakers. Her skills are often called upon by international businesses that need a strong, clear, brand voice for English language content.
Joanna is passionate about the built environment and its impact on our lives. So much so, that in 2018, she launched Work in Mind, an online platform that brings together new thinking, ideas and research on healthy buildings and their positive impact our wellbeing. As such, Jo’s often invited to talk about (or chair events) on the connection between buildings and wellbeing. You can view recent examples of her work here.
