Jo Bostock MBE
Jo specialises in working with senior leaders to realise the value of diverse and inclusive organisations. She has run her own consultancy since 2005 and her experience spans global brands operating in multiple geographies, through to SMEs and small, fast-growth start-ups.
Jo’s expertise is grounded in her skill as an Executive Coach, which is underpinned by a Masters in Professional Development. She has supported leaders across Insurance, Financial Services, Technology, Law, Media, Construction, Sport and the Arts. Jo has also collaborated with leading academic institutions, including publishing “The Meaning of Success – Women at Cambridge” with the University of Cambridge.
Jo’s aim is to give leaders the space to genuinely explore what drives them, the values that matter and the choices they make. Throughout this process there is a focus on pragmatism and the relevance of inclusion to live priorities. This means that leaders are better equipped to demonstrate their environmental, social and governance (ESG) credentials through action.
Jo’s interest in the dynamics of effective, inclusive leadership also encompasses high performance sport. She co-founded the Women’s Sport Trust, a leading charity dedicated to using the power of sport to accelerate gender inclusion. This saw her recognised as one of the top 20 most influential women in British sport. Jo was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for services to gender equality in sport.
