Project Description

Over 2,000 press, photographers and non rights holders were accredited and facilities were provided in 13 venues across England (twelve) and Wales (one).

She led two major initiatives. Firstly to allow a pre-determined number of selected non rights holders into the post match mixed zones for the first time ever, resulting in substantially increased coverage of the Tournament and secondly to provide remote (based in London) simultaneous interpretation at post match media conferences.

“Thanks to her determination and the relationships she has built up over the years Jayne managed to get the mix zone opened up for non rights holders for the first time at a RWC, this was crucial in shaping the editorial coverage of our channel.”
