Roisin Jenkins

Head of External Affairs



Roisin joined the GGI team as our head of events in 2020 after originally working with us on a freelance basis.

The beginning of the first lockdown in March prompted a huge increase in the number of GGI events, as we responded to the urgent need of senior people in the health and public sectors to discuss the coronavirus crisis.

We quickly established weekly webinars for non-executive directors and chairs of mental health trusts, as well as numerous one-off events. In fact, since the end of March we have either staged or taken part in 92 online events – a five-fold increase on previous years. Without Roisin’s expert leadership, this simply would not have been possible.

From 2016, Roisin worked as a freelance project and events manager, supporting a wide range of public and private sector clients. Before that she was a regional director at MCI, one of the world’s biggest event and communication companies, with 60 offices in 31 countries, where she managed multiple teams across three locations, delivering events, communication strategies and projects all over the world.
