“I first met Jane when I moved to Singapore and joined United Technologies. Jane was with DBM, the pioneers in career transition and talent development at that time, and I was really fortunate to meet her so soon after arriving, because she is such a vibrant personality who always has a smile and some wonderfully kind words of encouragement for everyone. Furthermore, given her own cultural heritage, Jane effortlessly blends both East and West to be one of the most truly effective cross-cultural communicators I have ever met, and this in itself was tremendously valuable to me as I integrated into my new life in Singapore and Asia. Whether it is personal or work-related, Jane has an outstanding ability to quickly identify a person’s strengths and weaknesses, and then builds upon those strengths while diplomatically suggesting practical ways to overcome weaknesses. If your self-confidence ever needs a boost then you MUST talk to Jane Jackson – a truly wonderful career coach!”
– Digby Ross, United Technologies
“Jane Jackson is a fabulous presenter who has delivered great results in boosting the confidence and image of our graduates new to the mining industry. Her sessions are fun and funny and she speaks so beautifully; no matter how incredulous you start, you can’t help but be engaged and connect with her. Jane is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate and she comes so well prepared that she can handle even the toughest critic. Even after six weeks of the same programme she still had time and energy for every single audience member.”
