"The best thing about my job is getting to work with inspiring, talented, passionate people on issues and stories that make the world a better place."
Hi there, I'm Jackie!
I’m a strategic communications and advocacy consultant who believes in the power of storytelling to effect positive social change. I'm passionate about helping INGOs, NGOs and for-purpose organisations to tell their stories authentically using a range of communications disciplines.
I'm post-graduate qualified, bilingual and have years of experience providing trusted strategic counsel to CEOs, high-profile spokespeople and global organisations. I've worked with a range of non-government organisations, nonprofits, entrepreneurs, start-ups and for-purpose businesses including UNICEF, World Vision, Children Out of Immigration Detention (ChilOut), the Australian campaign to End Child Detention, Beyond the Orphanage, Animals Australia and Humanitarian Advisory Group.
I actually started consulting in 2015 but then took some time off to do a few other things like backpack through Latin America, work in a couple of full-time roles, undertake post-graduate study, live in Brazil and Colombia - and eventually move to Bali!
While I firmly believe that depth of experience outweighs academic qualifications, I hold a couple of them: I graduated from the University of Sydney with a Master of Strategic Public Relations and from Monash University in Melbourne with a Bachelor of Journalism with First Class Honours where my research thesis focused on the negotiation of access for journalists in protracted humanitarian emergencies. I work in English and Spanish, speak Indonesian conversationally and can order a coffee in three other languages - with varying degrees of success.
Want help telling your story in an authentic way that puts people at the heart of your brand? Get in touch! I look forward to working with you.
