For me, it’s all about the food eco-system (from producer to web developer). At Thomas Jardine and Co, I have worked with individuals, businesses, academic institutions, regional government and national government bodies to ensure the vibrancy of the food eco-system.
My current role in Thomas Jardine & Co is research lead, keeping us up to date with current business thinking within the food eco-system and bringing this thinking to our coaching sessions.

I’m the 5th generation of Thomas Jardine & Co. We are on a mission to inspire confidence in business to grow and flourish through each growth stage.
My Current role is taking the lead on developing our coworking arm. We have started with The Guild, introducing the BRILLIANT coworking format to Carlisle. I want to bring this kind of vibrant work space to our wonderful region as it is now a global phenomenon, coworking spaces are popping up in most major cities with an annual growth rate of 24.2%. I truly believe more coworking spaces in our incredible region will help the phenomenal talent we have flourish and not feel like they have to move to the bigger cities to thrive!
Jacqui has a range of highly developed academic capabilities and business skills, these make her versatile, knowledgeable and a go to person for advice. Working under Jacqui’s tutelage at Lancaster University gave me the opportunity to see what really counts in business and that is people skills.
Jacqui guided, coaxed and encouraged a diverse group of people running very diverse businesses and we all came away with the same understanding and confidence. We all felt very different to each other when we embarked on our LEAD course but by the end we acknowledged that we all had the same fears and challenges and that skills definitely are transferrable.
Apart from all that she is also a wonderful human being so you can’t go far wrong
