Jane Shepherd MBE
A former newspaper and magazine journalist and Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) qualified marketeer, Jane leads a team that takes the time to really understand what its clients do and what they want to achieve – who work to a clear method to achieve their goals.
In a 30-year career she draws on a wide-range of experience, including in her role as a Media Operations Officer in the Royal Air Force – handling news stories at a national and international level – as well as a media trainer for organisations including the Environment Agency and the Nuclear Accident Response Organisation.
Jane was appointed in 2017 by the Department for International Trade as an Export Champion and one year later to the Trade and Investment Group of the Midlands Engine. Jane is also a former Visiting Fellow of Aston University and is currently vice chair of the QEGSMAT Multi Academy Trust, where she works on activities to support education and enterprise.
In 2019, Jane was awarded an MBE for services to international trade and the community of Staffordshire.
