Founder, Jane Fordham Consulting
Jane started her own consultancy in April 2018 following a 15-year career at global PR communications agency Golin. After joining this trail-blazing agency back in 2003, Jane led corporate communications programmes for brands such as Orange, Tetra Pak and Oracle. She then moved in 2010 to head up the agency’s talent and marketing. During that time the London team grew significantly in scale and developed a reputation as a pioneer of progressive talent programmes specifically in the areas of flexible working, gender and social equality and inclusion. Jane was so motivated and inspired by this work at Golin that she left the firm and started her own consultancy around; people, culture and equality in Spring 2018.
Jane now offers a wide range of consulting, training and development services across most aspects of people management including culture, talent acquisition and development, wellbeing and diversity and inclusion. She has worked with brands including The PRCA, Jack Morton (global events agency), WE Communications, The Civil Aviation Authority, Live Nation, Ipsos Mori, Centrica, Westminster City Council, and Arm (UK technology giant).
In recent years Jane has supported a Government Equalities Office publication of guidelines for returnship programmes (getting Mums and Dads back to work after an extended break) and appeared on BBC Breakfast TV (talking about innovative workplace benefits), Five Live Radio (the same), BBC Radio 4’s The Today Programme (unlimited leave) and various trade media (around the Gender Pay Gap and returnships).
