I work in a hands-on role within client businesses to generate growth through enhanced sales and marketing; establishing where new business is going to come from, how new customers will be won and what sales and marketing activities will be set up to help achieve this. I become part of your team and bring senior experience without the need for a high cost full time hire.

I have a track record of finding new customers and markets, leading sales teams and developing marketing strategies to support sales growth. I have a strong understanding of Brand, how to enhance it and use it to build value and sales growth.

Initiated by Jackie, and launching Isle of Wight milk in The Southern Co-operative, ‘Cows in Cowes’ gained extensive local and national coverage online, in the press and on TV. Moovellous!”

Kate Hibbert, The Southern Co-operative

“Jackie brings an energy and enthusiasm that brings about change and is a catalyst to growth. She is equally at home working on overall strategy or solving individual customer challenges. Both routes generate sales! Her management experience of small business was particularly useful for Pink’s”

Fiona Pink, Director Pink’s Foods
