Jenny BaileyJenny Bailey – Head of Corporate Relations

As Head of Corporate Relations, I connect with organisations and individuals who wish to become more involved in the world of agile. I enjoy tapping into the thinking of thought leaders and sharing that across the Consortium’s global network through my webinars, presentations, and collaborations.  Outside of work I enjoy family life, days out and trying something new.  Love the variety of life as I feel it energizes me.  Love getting away from it all and walking in the countryside/outdoors in all types of weather!  Another great passion of mine is music and singing. Life wouldn’t be life without it!
