Jude’s work has always focused on the power of human-interest stories and she is passionate about giving a platform to stories and issues that don’t get reported and strives to support people with lived experience – ‘Expert Citizens’ – to be confident to tell their stories themselves. Jude is a BBC trained reporter and producer with over 20 years’ experience of unearthing powerful stories. At the BBC Jude focused on human interest storytelling, developing and delivering high-impact social action campaigns across radio, television and Digital. She founded sounddelivery in 2006 to help charities and other socially-minded organisations navigate the changing digital landscape and find new ways of telling their stories. Key to this was building the skills and confidence across organisations and not just within the communications and fundraising departments. Since then Jude has trained thousands of individuals in social media and digital storytelling, helping to raise awareness and inspire action on issues including mental health, domestic violence, sexual abuse, homelessness, the care system, poverty and life in prison. Jude also connects journalists and documentary makers to the charities she works on projects with which has led to coverage on a range of social issues.
