Jules LovelandCommunications Manager, Dementia Adventure

I am currently working as the Communications Manager for the charity Dementia Adventure. I have over 20 years experience in media and comms.

A passionate advocate of the role of emotional intelligence in communications, I started my career in video production before segueing into website project management, allowing me to hone my writing skills for digital alongside developing my abilities in marketing & PR, leadership development and project management. Marrying strategy with storytelling, I’ve been described as a ‘content Queen’, maximising digital outputs.

I’m a vibrant and engaging public speaker, delivering sessions on Emotional Intelligence, and Wellbeing & Mental Health in Comms/PR.

Previous clients include Center Parcs, BBC, John Lewis Partnership, Deutsche Bank, Procter & Gamble, Waitrose, and The Salvation Army.

I’m also a trained mediator, and previously a counsellor, with specialisms in trauma and conflict resolution.

Member of the Chartered Institute of PR.

Why did you say yes to become a CommsHero Ambassador?

Why wouldn’t I? When I was at a low ebb, as a lone Comms worker, I felt lonely and misunderstood. I had no idea where to go for training or support. Then, I discovered CommsHero on Twitter. I found an incredible network of Comms professionals who not only really

knew their stuff, but they were warm, kind, welcoming and occasionally a bit bonkers. I felt like I’d found my tribe! CommsHero is so much more than a network of professionals and opportunity, it’s also friendship, validation, education and support.

Through this movement, (because it IS a movement) I have seen people come together for the good of the sector, support one another with projects, and lean on others when it gets tough.
I said ‘yes’ to being an ambassador because I want to continue to extend the welcome I received to other CommsHeroes who need it.
