Career Management Coach | Speaker | Author
With experience in industries including travel, health & fitness, public relations, education and human resources in Hong Kong, San Francisco, London, Singapore and Sydney I’m able to draw upon over 30 years of experience and relate to professionals experiencing a career crisis, graduates entering the workforce for the first time and mums returning to work after a career break.
Over the past 15 years, I’ve successfully guided and coached over 1,000 clients to take charge of their careers. Whether I am working one-on-one with individual clients or conducting presentations to large corporate groups, as a qualified career coach, image and branding coach and corporate trainer, what I enjoy most is being the catalyst to provide that little spark of inspiration that will lead you to greater satisfaction and happiness wherever you work.
My mission is to reach everyone who needs guidance and to that end I offer support in many ways through my Careers Podcast, Jane Jackson Careers, through my published articles in the Huffington Post, Michael Page Australia, Talented Ladies Club and Smallville.
My clients tell me I am compassionate and open minded, with a creative approach and the ability to instill self-confidence in individuals to realise their strengths and achieve their potential.
