The KMA Team
Principal of Jane Jordan & Associates – a boutique training and advisory firm - Jane is a coach and adviser to executive management with a focus on strategic communication, reputation and risk mitigation. As a professional “devils’ advocate,” she takes a broader focus than say a legal and accounting adviser might.
A leader in the field of crisis media management, Jane has been at the forefront of crisis media training since the early nineties, when she co-founded the Australian-based Media Skills, which became the highly respected training consultancy, The Jordan Templeman Group (The JT Group). The methodology from Media Skills and The JT Group is now licensed and used by the Media Skills NetworkÔ.
Her crisis experience also includes auditing crisis communication and crisis management programs, facilitating desk top exercises as well as crisis communication planning and coaching, including a two-year program for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. A strong strategist, Jane excels in high-stakes situations and has used her skills and experience to effectively coach high-level clients in high-risk situations.
She has worked in and around the media for more than 25 years, starting her working career as a journalist with Australian giant, Consolidated Press. Her media experience was strengthened with an in-house communication role and as a public relations consultant. Many of the programs Jane designed and implemented for her clients won prestigious awards from her peers in the public relations and communications industry.
Jane has a Masters in Communication Management from the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), a Train the Trainer certificate from Macquarie University (Sydney) and has taught Organisational Communication at the leading Australian communication school, Charles Sturt University plus Strategic Communication at Masters level at UTS. She also has various certificates in adult learning.
Her book on crisis media management, The Four Highly Effective Stages of Crisis Managing: How to Manage the Media in the Digital Age, was released in May, 2011 to rave reviews.
