“I was 27 when my father was killed, and within two days of that it was important for me to find something positive out of it, to bring some meaning and to even understand those who killed him.”
Jo Berry’s world was turned upside down in 1984, when the IRA bombed the Grand Hotel Brighton, England, killing her father Sir Anthony Berry. She made a personal commitment two days later to bring something positive from this tragedy and to understand those involved. In 2000 Jo met Patrick Magee, the bomber, and from that initial 3 hour meeting came a life long journey together speaking and demonstrating their ability to see each other’s humanity, dignity and respect.
They have shared platforms together over 150 times sharing their incredible story in prisons, schools, universities and international peace conferences, as well as being a subject for an award-winning BBC Everyman documentary: Facing the Enemy. They have spoken in Lebanon, Israel, Palestine and Rwanda, as well as local in the UK.
Jo has founded the charity Building Bridges for Peace, and is a skilled facilitator in story telling and transformation. Jo has dedicated her life to transforming her pain into action for peace, believing we all have our humanity. She is now a recognized professional speaker; she shares her insights and wisdom, showing how we can all contribute to creating a more peaceful world.
