Jane Kennedy

Founder, Join the Dots consulting


I am Jane Kennedy, formerly COO and HRD at Partnership Assurance, a provider of nonstandard annuities for individuals with medical or lifestyle conditions, which scaled rapidly through two rounds of PE investment (Phoenix Equity Partners and Cinven) before becoming a listed business in 2013, with a £1.6bn market cap.

This role followed an extensive executive career in Financial Services with SAGA Services, Colonial, Scottish Widows and GHL.

I am now pursuing a portfolio career, taking my experience of leading in start-up, scale-up, M&A, IPO and listed organisations, to NED roles, Trusteeships and a Portfolio Advisory role at Virtuvian Partners. I am additionally providing Executive Coaching to founders, CEOs, C-suite and aspiring C-suite in some very exciting organisations.

Through this experience I help PepTalks members to: grow their operations and navigate the private equity experience whilst they develop and enhance effective and successful leadership capability.
