K-Club Women’s Afternoon Tea Event Speaker – Tuesday 14th May 2019, 12.30pm-2.15pm

Joy Kingsley

Senior Partner at JMW

Joy joined JMW LLP in 2010, in the role of Senior Partner, to assist with the continuing development of the firm. Her particular areas of expertise are Management and Business Development. Joy previously presided over the impressive growth of Pannone LLP as Managing Partner and Senior Partner.

During the 8 years that Joy has spent at JMW, the revenue has increased from £10m to £38m, and people from 170 to 500. She has been integral to the growth of the business into one of Manchester’s top full service law firms, through high-level recruitment and innovative business models.

She is recognised in her industry with several nominations and awards including Women of the Year, Lifetime Achievement Award (Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For Awards), one of the 10 most innovative lawyers in the UK by the Financial Times and A Decade of Excellence in Business at the Women in Business Awards 2018 to name a few.

When not in her role at JMW Joy is also a Governor of Manchester Grammar School and a Non-exec Director and Shareholder of I-COM (I-COM International Ltd), a company providing web and search engine optimisation services.

Joy will share her knowledge and expertise on the topic of ‘Scaling up a business’, referencing both the growth of Pannone and JMW whilst juggling the demands of both business and family life.


Tommy’s is Joy’s nominated charity.  They fund research into miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth, and provide pregnancy health information to parents.  They believe it is unacceptable that one in four women lose a baby during pregnancy and birth. They want every parent to have the best possible pregnancy outcomes and to take home happy, healthy babies.

A donation of 25% of the entry fees will be made to Tommy’s.


We are delighted to be serving up an afternoon tea (call it your lunch or dinner!) in the Headmaster’s Office at the Great John St Hotel in Manchester whilst we hear from Joy.
