Jackie Jenks – OBE (Training and People Development)
It was great to chat with one of our members Jackie Jenks last week – we were thrilled to hear that she had been awarded an OBE in the Queens Birthday Honours for her service to training and people development.
Jackie has achieved so much in such a short space of time – just one year after opening LeapFrog Mountain her own accredited Training and Mentoring Academy the length and breadth of organisations and people she is working with are quite astounding, ranging from small charities up to Government and the European Human Rights Commission.
Anyone who knows Jackie will not be surprised that she has received such prestigious recognition but to her it came as a complete shock and she refers to herself as being “lucky” – actually I’m not sure I can agree with her on that one – it is, I believe her warm, open minded, collaborative approach to everyone she meets that has earned her this award. In fact, Jackie joined NXD as a member last year and has gone on to successfully lead the NXD Membership activity in the South West – she is a great addition to our core team.
