Jess puts in the hard work behind the scenes for our quarterly meetings - she leads our team on sourcing speakers and venues and crucially ensures that there is always a pub nearby.

When she's not arranging meetings, Jess runs sports events at Alzheimer's Research UK.

Henry manages events at Sue Ryder.
