English, Spanish, Dutch / Spain and UK

Enthused by an infinite fascination for human behaviour and how the body and brain work in synergy, Jacqueline’s entrepreneurial spirit got underway before she was 20 years old in the form of launching a business focusing on total health & well-being. Her strong understanding of business, and her resilient and agile approach to life, have resulted in the formation of five more advisory and consulting businesses, several advisory board positions, business partner, VP and Managing Director roles, all in the intersection of unleashing human potential, elite performance, senior leadership development and organisational transformation. Some of Jacqueline’s most recent major clients include Nike, Novartis, Boehringer Ingelheim, B Braun Medical, Ifema, Citrix and ING.

Jacqueline is especially passionate about co-creating diverse communities of integrated developmental learning & action for the ‘greater good’. She supports clients in exponentially increasing their leadership capacity by working with their ‘stretches’, ‘stressors’ and ‘shadow’ dynamics that liberate latent potential, and the capacity for broader, deeper, more systemic ways of perceiving, listening and acting. Her holistic approach interweaves strategic and structural support with a challenging, yet highly supportive environment in which individuals, teams and ultimately entire organisations build their capacity to thrive and perform under high levels of ambiguity and complexity.

Her current Doctoral Research at Hult Ashridge International Business School in the UK focuses on the intelligence of the body in integral human development and the leadership capacity that is required to resolve the interconnected systemic problems we face in today´s world.

Carmen GutiĂŠrrez RamĂ­rez - Digital Transformation Lead and IT Strategy Specialist

I got to know Jacqueline during a Digital Transformation process in which she contributed her valuable experience and knowledge of cultural change management and business transformation. Thanks to her great professionalism and dedication, we were able to work on all the difficulties that arose in the process.

It helped my team and myself greatly improve our leadership, communication, and conflict management skills, as well as achieve our goal of building a high-performing team, capable of facing any challenges that might lie ahead. It has been a pleasure for me to have worked with her and can recommend her work to anyone, professionally and personally.

Rosa Cuscó – Founder Women 360 Congress

I invited Jacqueline to the Women's 360 Congress roundtable that included a presentation and discussion on the role of women in the leadership of the future that the audience deeply valued.

Because of her profile and personality, she knew that she would be an excellent addition to the Advisory Board of the Women 360 Congress and it is a privilege to be able to count on her knowledge, professionalism and great heart in the area of health, wellness and business for directors and businesswomen.

I would recommend Jacqueline to any company looking to enhance its senior leadership team in the following areas: leadership agility, cultural change, executive coaching, peak performance and mindset training.

Rosemary Trigg - Director of Marketing and Communication Fairmont Rey Juan Carlos 

I had the opportunity to work with Jacqueline at a time of professional transition with her executive coaching services. She is a thoughtful, experienced coach with a natural talent for listening and knowing how and when to pull and occasionally push!
I found her to be a dedicated professional with a personal understanding of women's career and cross cultural challenges . The coaching process enabled me to explore and gain insights into both personal and professional issues and resulted in the development of both direction and structure for my transition. I would highly recommend working with her.
