Jos started his career in internal communications in 1991, when businesses were just starting to wake up to the commercial benefits of effective employee communication. Jos led internal communications for Bristol & West building Society (now part of Bank of Ireland), AA Insurance and finally AXA Sun Life.

In 2004, with 13 years corporate in-house experience under his belt and a long-held desire to run a business, he decided the time was right to launch Talking Your Language Ltd. (The Internal Comms Team is a trading brand of Talking Your Language Ltd.)

Jos believed that in an industry full of consultants, there was a gap in the market for an internal communications delivery agency – with a focus on ‘getting stuff done’. Our business has grown every year since launch, delivering internal communications for a range of blue chip clients.

Over the last successful 10 years leading TYL, Jos has become very much our communications review and interim leadership specialist helping numerous clients align their communications to the direction of the business, while making sure their approach is fresh and engaging to people at every level of the organisation.

Offering an independent and specialist review to evaluate the impact of an organisation’s current internal communications approach and channels compared to our framework of best practice developed through years of hands-on experience.

Have a look at what some of our clients from a range of different sectors say about this service including ITV, Thales, Worldpay, Wales & West Utilities and the University of the West of England.

Jos and his wife Amanda live with their three children between Bristol and Bath, a short drive away from The Internal Comms Team home at Paintworks, Bristol’s creative quarter. Having been born in Manchester and grown up in Cheshire, his main love apart from family and the business is Manchester United (but please don’t hold it against him!)
