Who We Are
Chanler Communications was founded in 2007 by Jennifer Ferguson-Mitchell as a full-service international advocacy communications consulting agency.
Jennifer brings 25+ years of experience and expertise to her clients gained in high-level roles including: communications director with the World Wildlife Fund, global media communications lead with the International Fund for Animal Welfare, head of communications with the UN Environment Programme's UN-REDD Programme, editor at the World Meteorological Organization, head of media relations and spokesperson of the UN's International Telecommunications Union, communications and campaigns lead with the Tropical Forest Alliance at the World Economic Forum.
She began her career as a journalist and photographer based in East Africa, where she lived for nearly a decade covering famines, civil war, the emergence of AIDS, and refugee crises. She has also worked in more than 35 countries around the globe.
These first-hand experiences have given her a unique understanding of how the critical issues of the UN Sustainable Development Goals impact the lives and livelihoods of some of the world's most vulnerable peoples.
Today, Jennifer is based in Geneva, Switzerland and advises leading organizations, institutions and companies in how to develop and deliver successful advocacy campaigns that engage audiences and drive impacts.
