development. During the past eight years, she has delivered keynote
presentations and facilitated workshops in over 30 major cities around the
world. She both entertains and enlightens her
audiences as she tells the story of “from the bedroom to the boardroom.”
Her company is in fact known as Bedrooms to Boardrooms, the same name as her relationships show on commercial talkback radio station MIX106.5. Callers discuss with Jackie what matters most – life, love and work. She also makes frequent appearances on other radio stations and on television, and is often quoted in the press.
She also took part in the documentary “Welcome to Intimacy” made in collaboration with the ABC. As a result of the positive viewer response, it was then purchased by the BBC in the UK.
In addition to her public speaking and media commitments, Jackie has also been running a successful private practice for the past 12 years. In all parts of her professional life, Jackie is able to share her insights into the human mind, as well as her sensitivity towards human life. She is as astute on a stage in front of thousands as she is with an individual.
Her theories are underpinned by the belief that a good relationship with others, and with ourselves, is crucial to having good relationships in our personal and professional worlds. Life is rarely simple or easy, and choices abound – bringing a great deal of responsibility and the sense of overwhelming obligation. Through trying to be all things to all people, individuals go to bed each night exhausted but with a mind still focussed on what needs to be done and what hasn’t been done. Jackie emphasises how important it is for people to get to know themselves and what really matters to them – and why.
As she puts it, “I am passionate about showing people how to replace their confusion and angst with clarity and peace. This results in a more satisfying life from the ‘bedroom to the boardroom. ®’”
Her university training combined with many years of clinical practice and business experience means that she is easily able to stimulate, educate and interact with a wide range of audiences
She credits her Irish heritage for her wit and ability to entertain, while her university training in conjunction with many years of clinical practice and business experience enables her to stimulate, educate and interact with a wide range of audiences.

Jackie wanted to say once again, thank you for the outstanding presentation you gave to our 2000 delegates in New Zealand. We have had tremendous feedback. Your ability to connect the theory of relationships with the practical was both intellectually rewarding and incredibly uplifting and funny. Understandably we had a waiting list for your workshop. We hope to see you next year.
