A storytelling geek with over eighteen years' experience creating some of the most innovative and award-winning content in the humanitarian sector, in her most recent role as Global Content Director Jess sat on the senior leadership team at Save the Children.

Jess led a large global team working across 29 countries creating content ranging from virtual reality to participatory projects with children to experiential events. When not at London College of Communication Jess works as a consultant helping NGOs deliver their stories powerfully and ethically.

Jess commissioned and co-authored The People in the Pictures, a ground-breaking piece of research asking those who feature in INGO content their opinions on both the process of sharing their stories and their final portrayal. Following this research, Jess founded and now co-chairs the Bond sponsored 'People in the Pictures working group', set up to bring about sector-wide change towards more ethical practices in the creation and use of images of poverty.
