Jo has been an inspiration to the fundraising team of the West India Committee. During this difficult economic time she has guided the charity in the assessment of its funding needs and the development of a sound fundraising agenda. Not least of all she has become a firm friend of the charity in whom we can trust.

As a trustee of Laurel Farm Kindergarten Jo was a great asset to the charity and injected a wonderful sense of fun and humour to our meetings. She was one of a handful of individuals who was instrumental in getting our school opened. Jo was responsible for marketing, publicity and admissions to the Kindergarten. Jo also organised our summer fair (a huge piece of work), I could not recommend Jo more for her efficiency and attention to detail in event planning. Throughout Jo's time as a trustee she offered fresh and insightful views to discussions.

Jo and I worked together at the National Osteoporosis Society for a number of years, and during that time Jo was instrumental in helping to develop the Fundraising Team and generating new income streams for the Charity. Jo had a natural synergy with the Charity's supporters and understood how to motivate donors. Jo is incredibly hardworking and tenacious. The NOS benefitted greatly from her fundraising insight, spirit and drive to achieve.

I had the pleasure of working for Jo Byron at the National Osteoporosis Society. She has a very open and honest, consultative, style of management, with a wealth of knowledge she draws upon, to make informed suggestions thatI’ve found very helpful. Her skills have been instrumental in securing rapid growth in trusts and foundations income at the charity in the last few years. She is very warm and easy to get on with, both professionally and personally, and a confident communicator. Consequently, she is very effective at building and maintaining professional relationships and networks and I have learnt a lot from her in the time we worked together.
