As director of strategic development, Jodie works closely with the chief executive to establish and review key strategic priorities for the association and translate them into a comprehensive strategic plan.
After a brief stint as an English language teacher, Jodie joined English UK in 2007 as a marketing communications manager. She quickly moved into international market development and in 2015, after a year at The Intern Group as head of global agency relationships and university relations for the Asia Pacific region, returned to the association as the head of market development.
In January 2017, Jodie was seconded part-time to the Department for International Trade's education sector team as the specialist for English language training. She came back full-time to English UK in April 2018 when she was promoted to the role of director of strategic development.
Jodie has a Chinese and Hindi degree from Cambridge University and is widely travelled, having visited nearly 40 countries during the course of her career in international education.
