Jane Burgess

Account Director

What brought you to JBP?

Mainly, my background in the energy and planning sectors – for my sins! Having worked both in-house and at a number of agencies over the last 15 years, I’ve led communications projects for a wide range of clients, including controversial and major infrastructure projects in the energy field. This includes working directly with community and political stakeholders, as well as local and specialist media, to develop and deliver integrated campaigns that help clients overcome a range of communications challenges.

I’m the regional account lead for National Grid (North) working on both Property and Capital Delivery projects. More generally, anything B2B, energy or planning-related with a northern focus is my remit!

How does Jane make it brilliant?

Community Relations and Stakeholder Engagement / Major Infrastructure Projects / Public Relations / Strategic Advice / Circular Economy and Renewable PR.

What do you do in your spare time?

If it’s covered in fur, feather or scales then it’s got my attention – my dog and ferret keep me occupied! Plus, a fair bit of sport (keep kidding myself I will do another triathlon), music and aspiring couturier (not quite haute couture, yet!). Never knowingly missed an episode of Strictly Come Dancing.
