About Jo

Jo Jordan is one of Queensland’s leading festival producers and event strategists. For 15 years Jo ran her award-winning events consultancy j2 ideas & events. Presenting events on water, underground and in remote locations, Jo and her j2 team were known for delivering complex projects that others often put in the ‘too hard’ basket.

Jo has since held the roles of Head of Events & Marketing at South Bank Parklands, Head of Events at Brisbane Marketing (during G20), Festival Director of Regional Flavours, and Director of the Horizon Festival of arts and culture on the Sunshine Coast.

Jo specialises in event strategy and development and the revitalisation of existing events and festivals. She has held the responsibility of reimagining iconic Queensland festivals including Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers and Ipswich Festival and recently completed a city-wide events strategy for the City of Ipswich.

Jo is passionate about guiding regional event producers, committees and communities to help them develop and grow their events to reach their potential.
