Transpennine hop for Intelligent Conversation’s new head of public information and consumer


Manchester-based strategic PR, content & comms agency Intelligent Conversation has appointed Jessica Hardman as head of public information and consumer.

Hardman brings 18 years’ agency experience leading consumer and B2B campaigns for brands and public sector organisations including the NHS, Quorn, Virgin Media and Makro. She previously spent over a decade at Leeds-based Finn, where she was operations director and played an instrumental role in the agency’s management. At IC, she will be part of the five-strong, hands-on management team around owner and managing director Fritzi Wemheuer.

IC’s internationally award-winning behaviour change work, for United Utilities and Greater Manchester Combined Authority among others, provides the perfect platform for Hardman to grow the agency’s offering in this space, alongside its strong presence in B2B and Healthcare.

She said: “IC has a fantastic reputation for its high-value work, nationally and globally, and I am excited to join such an experienced team, telling the big global stories and tackling important issues with strategic, creative communications. I was drawn to IC for its grown-up ‘work where you want’ model. Its central Manchester offices are incredible and well-connected. Yet, as a parent, having that genuine flexibility to work remotely with a range of exceptional clients remains a game-changer in the agency world.”
