About this event

Jacqueline is the President of techUK and sits as a Non-Executive Director on the board of UK technology business Rightmove plc.

Her presidency focuses on the ambition for the UK to seize its position as a digital nation of significance by leveraging its digital opportunity and skills. She believes that to achieve this all geographies and demographics across the UK must be included and we must strive to equip our country with the very best infrastructure and supportive business legislation possible. Above all, none of the above can be achieved unless the UK tech industry demonstrates that it is open for business to global markets.

Prior to her presidency, Jacqueline held the role of deputy president techUK and board champion for women. She has used this role to leverage resources in the technology industry to support her manifesto to increase diversity of skills and talent in the tech industry. This has gathered increasing momentum through techUK's Women in Tech Council, which continues to bring industry together to drive for inclusion, diversity & gender equality.

Jacqueline has been employed throughout her career by global blue-chip software companies to accelerate growth by pulling amazing teams together who can operate under pressure and extending their reach through smart partnerships.

Jacqueline was previously a Non-Executive Director at Home Retail Group plc; is a board advisor at Digital Leaders; and lends her support to everywoman. In 2016 she entered the @Computerweekly Hall of Fame as the most influential woman in UK IT; she was voted Computer Weekly's Most Influential Woman in IT 2015; and was listed on Debretts 2016 500 People of Influence – Digital.
