Jo Brookbanks Interpretation and Events Programmer Jo started with Auckland Museum in 2000 as an administrative secretary and quickly demonstrated her passion for enhancing the customer experience. Today she's responsible for developing and delivering events and programmes for families. If you visit a special exhibition, come to the Museum in the school holidays or visit during cultural festivals, you are likely to encounter one of Jo's fun, exciting and educational programmes. She's also involved with delivering off-site Museum programmes. "I was attracted to working at Auckland Museum because I love the building, but what lies within has proved much more rewarding than I anticipated. Working at the museum is inspiring, challenging and never boring - there are so many stories to share with our visitors. As a bonus, the people I get to work with are precious and fascinating specimens themselves!"
