Jacqui Purnell

She is passionate about developing leadership capability and making world-class leadership development available to all.

She works with individuals and teams, across all sectors to provide resilience leadership coaching, personal development, and organizational interventions aimed at driving improved performance. With over 30 years of experience in the pharma sector including senior leadership and board roles she knows how great it feels to create and be part of an empowered, engage, resilient organization and she wants to support individuals achieve this with their teams.

Today everyone, no matter what sector, role or level needs to be able to deliver results despite constant change and uncertainty. Building resilient leadership behaviours will give individuals confidence in who they are and what they do, so that they can create environments for successful performance and identify and take opportunities. Building resilient leadership behaviors will mean individuals become more effective under pressure, bouncing back knowing they can create ideas and solutions to thrive through change and uncertainty.

She is looking to work with groups and individuals who want to better understand their individual and combined leadership strengths and their development areas, and are committed to working on what’s holding them back from achieving even better outcomes together.
