The early part of Joanna’s career was spent in the residential property world, working as a negotiator for estate agents in London and Winchester.
In 2001 Joanna joined North Hampshire Chamber of Commerce as Winchester Area Manager providing support for businesses, a role she relished because of its wide range of activities and because it brought her into contact with so many different people and organisations. She was responsible for organising events, recruitment, writing articles, overseeing the committee, liaising with employers, minute taking and running the office.
Her work at the Chamber gave Joanna a large contact base and an understanding of the business life of the county as well as strong links with other support organisations and local authorities.
Joanna has recently set up her own business, Jo Humphrey Business Support, drawing on her previous experience to offer a wide range of business support services, project and event management. Assignments can be undertaken on an occasional or regular basis, at the client’s premises or remotely, and often at short notice.
Joanna is professional, experienced and has an extensive knowledge and understanding of business.
John Harrocks, Chief Executive (Retired), North Hampshire Chamber of Commerce & Industry
Having worked with Jo for nearly 4 years I can honestly say she is a fantastic and very motivated person to work with. Her attention to detail and great knowledge base makes her an asset to any company. Having worked for the Chamber for over 10 years, her understanding of local business, and contacts within this, is second to none.
