I’m Jackie Phillips and I’m a Business Development Consultant, Coach and Mentor.

I work in two ways. Firstly, I work alongside Small Business Owners as a Business Coach and Mentor, developing business strategies and action plans, helping to establish where and how to achieve business growth. I also support business owners to be as effective as they can be as they take on the challenges of their business. This includes coaching in areas such as goal setting, positive mindset, confidence and leadership.

As a Business Mentor, clients call on my 30+ years of working with Micro and SMEs to support them with new business set-up and navigating all areas of business growth.  Please see my Coaching and Mentoring page to find out more.

Secondly, I undertake sales and marketing operations as part of the team within client businesses, predominantly in the Speciality Food sector. Please see my Business Development  page to find out more.

In short I help you to unlock potential and maximise performance.

I am based in Bath, Somerset and I also spend a lot of time on the lovely Isle of Wight. I can work with you wherever you are located. I work on Zoom too.

“Jackie has been an invaluable support to our team over the past four years. She brings exceptional empathy, tenacity and people skills and our brand strength is considerably stronger as result.”

Barnes Edwards,
Director at The Garlic Farm

“Jackie quickly grasped the issues we were facing in our business and worked with us to develop action plans to address them. Her knowledge and support have been fundamental to our business growth.”

Sharon Villiers,
Owner of the Hideaway Café

“I work on a project basis, or with a contracted amount of hours per month. I am flexible to the needs of your business. A Project Business Plan is always produced so that both you and I know what we are setting out to achieve, by when, and to what pre-agreed budget.”
