We are delighted to announce that Julie Wood will join Vivli in the role of Director of External Affairs starting in the beginning of October. Wood joins us from the Cochrane Collaboration, where she was the Head of Communications and External Affairs for the past three years.
During her time at Cochrane, she developed the team that focused on communications, media, dissemination, translations, strategic partnerships, branding and events, and fundraising. Wood was instrumental in the delivery of Cochrane’s re-brand, where she coordinated and launched the first-ever Global Evidence Summit.
Prior to joining Vivli, she spent a year working for a Microsoft partner and more than 12 years at Oxfam Great Britain, the development agency. Her final role at Oxfam GB was as the Director of Corporate Communications. Julie’s experience managing strategic partnerships, leadership skills, fundraising and experience with global programs bring make her the ideal person for this complex and critical role.
