Jackie has a wealth of experience in life and in business.

From selling antiques on her parent’s market stall as a 12 year old, travelling the world working as a holiday rep in her early 20’s to spending a 15 year career as a recruiter and senior leader, before moving to Learning and Development in 2011, her skills and knowledge are extremely varied!

In 2018, Jackie made the brave decision to share her personal story of bullying and exclusion in her TEDx talk, ‘The exclusive nature of inclusion’. This became the catalyst for her to become a leading authority in diversity, equity and inclusion in business leadership.

The author of ‘The little book of belonging – your weekly guide to inclusive habits’, Jackie now works globally as a learning designer and facilitator, regular keynote and event speaker, and organisational consultant. She’s simply passionate about learning, growth and humanity.

A regular content contributor, Jackie and her work have been featured in Metro, Sunday Telegraph, TalkRadio, Happiful, DIVA and Growing Business Intelligence, and she’s a popular podcast guest on both sides of the Atlantic.

Fellow of the Professional Speaking Association UK & Ireland (PSA), Jackie was honoured to be appointed as their first post holder of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Director in 2021. She also volunteers as a mentor to young people through the Employability UK Kickstart Mentoring Scheme.

“I believe that life has a wonderful way of guiding us to where we need to be in order to do our best work” Jackie says. “Throughout my varied and expansive career, the common theme of being ‘in service of others’ has remained. I’m so passionate about nurturing potential. Developing business skills and knowledge are valuable and learning people skills and empathy are priceless. My mission is to create a world where everyone feels safe, valued and understood at work and it is that mission that drives every part of who I am and how I serve”
