About Jacqui

Hi, I’m Jacqui.

I believe that life’s not meant to be just one long coping strategy – it can be as fantastic as you choose to make it.

Both in business and your personal life, I firmly believe the greatest rewards come when you decide to be 100% true to yourself, to be completely authentic in everything you do, and really live (and do business) your way.

My Bio
My Core Values



Friendly & approachable, Jacqui draws on a diverse background of both qualifications and business experience to assist business owners, and other motivated individuals, to turn their ideas into profitable realities.

With a belief that we should never stop learning and growing, Jacqui holds university degrees in both Psychology & Education, as well as qualifications in Journalism, Coaching, Real Estate Sales & Teaching English as a Second Language.

Over 20 years in business has seen Jacqui start and operate her own businesses in New Zealand, South Africa, London & South Korea in areas of event management, publishing, communications, real estate, as well as business coaching & consulting.

Jacqui is particularly passionate about inspiring & supporting individuals to create their own business realities: helping them to overcome the challenges and enable the wins.

She also researched and wrote Go Girl Go: Real Stories of NZ Women in Business, published in 2001. This featured a foreword written by then Prime Minister Helen Clark, and went on to become a best seller in New Zealand. These authentic stories still inspire business people today.

Whether you’re just getting started in business, looking for support to keep going, and/or grow, or navigating a complete overhaul of your life in general, Jacqui can help you to:

> Get clarity around your ideas / current position
> Formulate a plan for next steps
> Connect you to a vast range of assistance & resources available
> Support you to make it happen
