Jo Been

Partnerships Communications Manager

 

A long time listener and lover of TED talks, Jo started volunteering with TEDxSydney this year as Partner Communications Manager, while working full time at EY as Brand & Media strategist.

With a past life as a commercial lawyer, Jo’s career hasn’t followed a typical trajectory and her diverse experience means she is able to bring a unique combination of critical thinking, creativity and communication skills to the team. Jo is also passionate about human rights and as a board member for the Immigration Advice & Rights Centre, she is doing her bit to make Australia a more inclusive and diverse home for all. On weekends, when she’s not soaking up Sydney’s culture or out for a run, you’ll find her restoring old furniture in the garage while tuning in to her latest podcast obsession.
