THE TEAM

Fit2Communicate combines Karen Dempster and Justin Robbins’ many years of experience in helping people and organisations to communicate. Their unique approach and contribution to improving school communication has recently been recognised by the Institute of Internal Communication when they were both awarded Fellowships.  They are supported by Joanna Amis, who is responsible for Fit2Communicate’s Public Relations.

Karen is passionate about good communication. She starts by understanding people’s motivations and concerns and builds effective approaches that build curiousity, create energy and connect. Since 1996, she has led change, communication and Marketing initiatives for a range of organisations.

Justin has been delivering communication professionally since 2001. Having initially worked in financial services and education, he is now fully focused on making a difference in education through communication. He is a school governor and triathlon coach and is passionate about helping people achieve their dreams.
