Jackie has a way with people that enables them to think in ways they didn’t know they could. Coming from the entrepreneurial world where 'survival of the quickest' is the prevailing culture, Jackie inspires clients and gives them the confidence to move quickly and sure-footedly, to think clearly and creatively and to ad-lib in real time.
Jackie is uniquely able to incorporate small company thinking into her approach, to ensure that time is used valuably, and that outcomes are reached in interesting and sometimes revelatory ways.
Jackie’s background is in corporate and financial communications. During her career she has worked at all levels, and at a range of stages in the growth cycle of a number of PR agencies. She has also been through the spectrum of corporate transitions that these businesses experience; from start-up, to building the business with the introduction of staff and talent strategies, to team relocations, rationalizations, mergers, management buy-outs and finally, a trade sale to a large, international group. This has given her a particular insight into the development issues faced by people in entrepreneurial, growing businesses, at different stages in their maturity; in other words, what matters to them, and when.
She helps clients to identify, articulate and communicate what, authentically, sets them apart from the crowd, and makes them the organisation or individual that their clients choose to work with.
Jackie lives in Wimbledon, in south west London, and as you’d maybe expect, loves tennis.
