How did you hear about the weekend?

Through social media – I saw some action from participants from the last Impact 48 on Twitter and Facebook, so signed up for the newsletter to be part of the next one.

Why do you want to be involved in Impact48?

I come from a charity background and the third sector has always been a passion for me. I love being involved in bringing people with different skills together to create something for the greater good.

Describe yourself in three words.

Hard question! Usually sociable, often dorky, and sometimes intrepid.

4) Describe your company in a nutshell.

Digital Marketing for small businesses. (that’s the very compact nutshell version)

What do you perceive your role to be over the weekend and what are you hoping to bring to the challenge?

I have no idea! But I hope I can bring my experience in charity and digital marketing to benefit the team.

What are you expecting?

I try not to carry expectations when I do new things. It’s a feng shui lifestyle thing… But I expect good things!

What do you hope to gain from the weekend?

I certainly hope that we can produce a result for the charity, and also have a great weekend ourselves and collaborate with some new people I don’t otherwise get to work with.

I’m also helping to organise Startup Weekend Glasgow in October, so hopefully I can carry some lessons from Impact48 to apply to SWG13.

What is your favourite home baked treat?

Haven’t met one I don’t like… But of course the favourite is apple crumble.

We are delighted to have Jennifer on board! With her skills, experience and expertise we can wait to see what Jennifer and the other volunteers will achieve for Edinburgh Cyrenians over the weekend. Without the time and energy of our wonderfully generous volunteers, the Impact48 weekends could not take place. So we would like to take a moment to say a huge thank you to Jennifer, we’ll see you soon!
