Jakki is a freelance writer and trainer in business writing.
As well as writing for a living, she has designed and delivered workshops in all aspects of business writing skills for the public and private sectors.
She enjoyed a 12-year career at The Readers Digest, a global publishing firm, rising to Director of New Business, Europe. Here she had to write persuasive documents to secure corporate funding.
She saw that the skills for writing at work were very different to those taught at school and university, so she set out to learn and later teach these skills and techniques. She has taught internationally, including in Europe and South East Asia.
Jakki has an MBA from Manchester Business School, and postgraduate certificates in coaching, TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and training practice. She is an Associate of the UK's Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development.
