Jackanory Communications was established by Anna James to help organisations of all shapes and sizes to capture their stories and create simple, powerful and effective communications.
Working with a trusted team of graphic designers, photographers, film crews, digital experts, print houses, event services and other suppliers as required, Anna brings together everything you need to deliver your key messages in print, on film and in person.
With over 15 years marketing, communications and branding experience covering strategic thinking and practical doing in a variety of industry sectors including b2b, travel retail, small businesses, engineering and education, Anna is passionate (and a bit of a perfectionist!) about good and effective communication that works for customers and colleagues alike. She is a 'people-person' with a flair for creativity and an infectious enthusiasm balanced by incisive commercial understanding and an innate sense of professionalism.
"I love telling the right stories in the right way to the right people in order to raise the profile of a brand, drive behaviour and support business objectives"
Anna is just a great communicator - turning the complexities of business into engaging stories in words, film, images and events that inform, inspire and excite. She can turn her hand to most challenges and does so with charm, commitment and that added sparkle that is Anna.
Sales & Marketing Director
HSS Hire Group
Anna is a communications professional of the highest order - delivering persuasive, consistent brand communications both internally and externally and becoming "the voice" of the company. She is also a great relationship builder and develops close alliances with key stakeholders. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Global Marketing Director
Anna helped us to build an engaging narrative to share with our front line colleagues. She very quickly assimilated the data and then re-worded it into an accessible and easy-to-deliver set of key messages for all colleagues. Anna is lovely to have around - positive, friendly, highly professional - and I whole heartedly recommend her for any internal comms projects. When we have our next big project, we will definitely ask her to take it on.
