Jenny Turner, Managing Director and Founder
Having specialised in PR and marcoms within the charity sector for more than 20 years, Jenny founded Turner PR in 2004, growing the agency to deliver a broad range of PR and communications services for the non-profit sector. She is a keen supporter of the fundraising community, playing an active role on a variety of panels and committees that include the Chartered Institute of Fundraising’s Partners Forum, the institute’s Insight in Fundraising Special Interest Group, and the judging panel for the Charity Times Awards. Jenny is a natural and intuitive networker with an ability to identify potential strategic partnerships, often helping Turner PR’s clients to develop collaborative alliances and projects for mutual benefit. She’s a great believer in helping clients in their profile raising through approaches that are right for them but which also support and give back to the wider sector.
Previously, Jenny helped develop several specialist trade and B2B communications agencies, working with clients in the branding and marketing services arena, and before that with technology focused PR agency, Text100.
Jenny has a love the natural world and walking with her beloved sausage dog, Dot. She is a keen photographer, sharing her pictures on Instagram @jenturnerpr and she’s also a licensed Thames mudlarker, exploring the shores between the tides in the hunt for historic artefacts.
