Who We are

JFO was founded in April 2004 and has evolved into a not-for-profit organisation providing employees with services aimed at prevention, intervention and recovery from workplace bullying. We work for no one else but you, the victim, and can help you work towards your desired outcome.

Founder - Board of Directors - Staff - Volunteers

Board of Directors

Jo Anne Brown [Founder & Chair]
Jo founded Just Fight On! following her own experience of workplace bullying. She battled through the 'system' – her ex-employers’ internal complaints and appeals procedure, an Employment Tribunal, civil court and a claim for Industrial Injury benefit for over five years. [More]

She has driven JFO forward from small beginnings, setting up the original 100-page website in her bedroom in 2004 to setting up the UK’s first centre for people bullied at work. She is regularly interviewed by the press about workplace bullying and in late 2005 was featured in the BBC TV series ‘Making Slough Happy’.

Nick Hanning
Nick is a lawyer specialising in personal injury cases caused by bullying, harassment and stress. He enjoyed a high profile success with the Majrowski v Guys & St Thomas NHS Trust case at the House of Lords, which confirmed an employer has vicarious liability under the Protection From Harassment Act 1997.

Nick is a qualified legal executive and advocate and works for Reynolds Williams in Poole, Dorset. He also won the ground-breaking Long v Mercury Mobile Communications Services case in 2001.

Jess Pryce-Jones
Jess is Managing Director of iOpener, the only consultancy focusing on happiness at work. She believes that everyone has the power to change and grow and works with individuals, teams and organisations to develop through focusing on strengths. Jess was one of the experts on the BBC TV series Making Slough Happy, through which she worked with Jo and JFO.

Jess has worked in international business for many years, including Brussels, Paris and London. She has degrees in Classics and Psychology and is currently writing a book called ‘Happiness at work: your practical guide.’

Professor Agi Oldfield
Agi is an Organisational Psychologist and a full time academic. In addition to her post as Professor of Organisational Behaviour and Management at Richmond University, Agi also undertakes consultancy in organisational risk management.

She has been a victim of bullying at work and has been successful in taking her case to employment tribunal. More importantly, she has survived the experience and has moved on to a more positive and enriching work environment.

Damian Stoupe
Damian is a registered psychotherapist, hypnotherapist, General Hypnotherapy Standards Council Validated Practitioner, life coach and mediator. He runs the West Country Support Group and is a member of the Network, which links workplace bullying support groups around the world.

Damian worked in the materials/resource management and training areas of manufacturing for 15 years, he later changed his career path and extended his professional skills to incorporate hypnotherapy, life coaching, mediation, counselling and psychotherapy, to enable him to advise, help and treat people who have wish to shape their own future rather than be shaped by it.

Company Secretary
Tina Goodyear – From 31/3/06
Tina has been appointed as our Company Secretary with effect from 31st March 2006. She has worked in local government for the last 15 years in Personnel/HR. Her experience includes recruitment and selection, management of long-term sickness absence, staff redeployment, and equalities and diversity issues. Tina also ran a focus group looking at the barriers to disabled people in the local government sector. Prior to this, she worked in finance/computer/secretarial related posts in private sector businesses.

Helen Green – To 31/3/06
JFO was incorporated with the dedicated assistance of Helen Green during this critical phase of our development. She resigned prior to embarking on her trial in the High Court against Deutsche Bank, which we are pleased to say she won.

Staff

We have two members of staff, job-sharing the role of Volunteer Co-ordinator. Trisha Drahota and Tajinder Kaur Sandhar look after all our volunteers, without who we wouldn't be where we are today. This post is funded by the European Social Fund.
