Jo Watson


Hi everyone, I’m Jo, and that blonde beauty in the photo with me is my daughter, Lily.

We’ve been a part of the Speed of Sight Family since 2017 (just before Lily was born, in fact), and I officially became a Trustee at the start of 2020. In all this time, I STILL haven’t been able to wangle an SOS jacket! 😉

This charity really means the world to me, and these guys really are family, so I love that the honour is mine to write Mike’s book with him and John. Being able to put the Speed of Sight story into a book – along with the most amazing insights into Mike’s life – really is a privilege. I can’t wait for you all to read it.

It probably won’t surprise you, given my role, that away from the charity I’m a freelancer copywriter, editor and trainer. If you’re not of a nervous disposition, you can find me at
