What brought you to JBP?

Before joining JBP, I taught English in Japan, completed an MA in Culture and Politics at Leiden University, and worked as a manager at Amazon. I learnt about the importance of clear communication and cultural sensitivity in engaging diverse audiences.

I now want to learn about PR and Communications: increasingly important features of today’s cultural and political landscape. I joined JBP because they allow me to do this while working alongside brilliant people and learning with – and from – clients spanning a wide range of sectors and industries.
