Conversation with Jen Robson – 31 Jan

This is a popular CIM event you will not want to miss!

Jen Robson, Head of Communications at the North East Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) featured as one of the North East's Marketing Greats, will talk about her role and career journey so far.

These were her words of advice to new marketers…

Rome wasn’t built in a day so be realistic about what you want to achieve and in what timescale. In the world of the public sector, things are changing to become more transparent, authentic and audience led but there are protocols and political sensitivities to take into account. Communications play a clear role in change management and stakeholder relations, but change takes time. Be clear about where you want to be and be flexible and patient on how you get there.

The North East LEP is a public, private and education sector partnership. As one of the thirty-eight LEP’s in the country, it is responsible for promoting and developing economic growth in the local authority areas of County Durham, Gateshead, Newcastle, North Tyneside, Northumberland, South Tyneside and Sunderland. The North East LEP works with partners to develop a more competitive local economy and aims to drive 100,000 new jobs by 2024.
