About the Ownerjackie
Jackie Richards

I worked as a HR generalist, covering all sectors for over 20 years and towards the end of my time in the corporate world, I enjoyed the freedom of interim contracts.  However, I still became embroiled in their company politics and was not happy with some of the HR approaches I witnessed. I therefore decided to set up my own business to give me complete freedom to focus on doing what I love best – providing practical business solutions to people management issues.

Im passionate about saving small businesses time, money and worry with all of their people issues. My long term aim is to develop the leadership teams, so that they grow in strength and therefore need to utilise my services less and then I can move on to making a difference in my next small business!

So that I can offer the best possible development for managers, as one size does not fit all(!), in addition to my advisory and training services, I am also working towards being a qualified executive coach and mentor.  I’m a member of the Association for Coaching and also a volunteer mentor for the CIPD Steps Ahead programme, so that I continue to improve and develop my skills in these areas.

And on a personal note, my other great passion is walking – I walk almost every weekend in our beautiful English countryside, or go for weekends all over the UK and walking weeks abroad.  I also love travelling in general, eating out, good wine and my quieter pastimes involve the Arts and reading
