“Jess joined SoundCloud when we were under 100 people and was part of a team that helped us grow significantly during her time here. Initially, helping to build out our employer brand and hiring process, Jess moved on to establish our Learning & Development unit. Her approach to designing learning programmes was inclusive, experiential and always informed by best practice. Jess has an ability to distill research in various subject areas and make it accessible and informative for a bright audience like our staff at SoundCloud.
Jess developed SoundCloud’s first management development programme, LUMAS, which is still running and helps new managers in the organisation to become better at their jobs. She also designed numerous other learning programmes for the company including an experiential learn to code programme, workshops on giving and receiving feedback, conflict management and strengths-finding. Most recently she developed a workshop on developing a Growth Mindset in the People team; The workshop itself was highly engaging, Jess has an ability to facilitate sessions for mixed levels of staff, bring out great ideas and ensure all voices are heard. Participants got to put their learning into action straight away which resulted in a fantastic learning experience for all and resulted in some great initiatives. The growth mindset is regularly referenced. I highly recommend working with Jess.” – Noor Van Boven, Head of People, SoundCloud
