Wow. Where do I start. I first heard Jackie speak at The Business Networking Show and that was by accident because I had arrived early for a gig at the same venue.

I wandered into the theatre and the audience were all transfixed listening to Jackie's remarkable story. I stood at the side of the room and just listened to one of the most inspirational stories about a woman making her way in a mans world and reaching the pinnacle.

Jackie's story of how she went from humble beginnings to becoming the first ever lady CEO of British Rail is a message that will resonate with audiences of any age and background.

I have seen many speakers and I can say that Jackie approaches her speaking with the same grit and determination that created her remarkable story.

Highly recommended and entertaining.
