HANNAH LONDON ’20VENLY FELLOW SPOTLIGHT
Born and raised in Hull, Massachusetts, Hannah attended University of Massachusetts Amherst where she graduated with a B.A. in Communication. Hannah worked her way through school in retail, restaurant, and day care center roles. From those experiences and looking forward, she developed a passion for helping local businesses. Coming from a tight-knit small town, Hannah sees the Fellowship as a chance to strengthen community connection across geographies and markets through outreach and engagement, ecommerce, web operations, and cybersecurity.
FELLOWSHIP QUALIFICATIONS EARNED TO DATE
Hannah earned the following qualifications after completing Four Levels of training and delivering measurable value to Local Businesses on each skill covered.

- Performed that skill for a local business that confirmed the measurable value received.

“As Hannah’s Fellowship Coach for the past year, I’ve admired Hannah’s strong relationship and communication with her clients along with her passion for their progress.

They also credit Hannah’s energy, humor, and ability to think on her feet no matter what comes up.”
SCOPE OF IMPACT
Throughout Hannah’s Fellowship, she upskilled local businesses on Outreach & Engagement, Community Commerce, Operations, and Cybersecurity. To begin that process, Hannah benchmarked a total of 4,422 scores for 2,534 organizations based on best practices for 503 market categories. Hannah helped to build 355 Revenue Grower benchmarking tools and then measured the ongoing progress she made with specific clients described in the Proof Point section below.
- Scores Completed shows the number of organizations Hannah benchmarked against their priority challenges segmented by type (e.g., best practices for Social Media, Innovation, Community Commerce, Operations, Business Continuity, and Cybersecurity). Each score type covers approximately one hundred best practices.
- Businesses Served shows the number of unique businesses for whom Hannah completed different types of scores.
- Market Categories shows the number of unique industry segments represented by those businesses Hannah benchmarked.
- Best Practices shows the number of market category-specific Revenue Grower tools that Hannah expanded. (Revenue Grower tools for healthcare organizations focused on increased wellness rather than revenue; Revenue Grower tools for nonprofits focused on increased support rather than revenue.)
