Rona Kelly

Head of Digital


I graduated from Royal Holloway (University of London) with a BA in English Literature and MA in Shakespeare. Straight out of university, I was lucky enough to join what is (in my mind) the home of Shakespeare: Shakespeare’s Globe!

In my time there, I specialised in creating and curating digital content across a number of areas: social media, website and app development, podcasts, multimedia, livestreams and broadcasts. Starting as a coordinator, I gained a wide range of practical skills; within three years, I progressed to developing strategy as Digital Producer.

When my days weren’t filled with theatre, my evenings were too. As a reporter for Broadway World, this work took me to the West End, regional venues, and off the beaten track (quite literally with Latitude Festival!)

When I heard JHI were looking to add to their social media team and expand their digital work, I knew this was the role for me. And that decision was the right one: it’s wonderful to work with such an incredible team, across inspiring live events, shows and tours.
