Jacqueline Stockwell

Jacqueline Stockwell

BA Hons & MSC, Managing Director and Founder LTD UK and co–founder of LTD Australia

Jacqueline spent roughly 10 years working within the National Health Service (NHS) before she started Leadership Through Data. Jacqueline’s creative leadership style and proactive approach to information management has led her to be an inspirational leader and as quoted by her colleagues and clients “her positive attitude is infectious” and “she is totally human in her approach”.

Jacqueline’s approach to information management is to simplify what is viewed as a complex and uninteresting topic into relevant practical and enjoyable solutions, which can be understood and implemented by staff, employers and clients. Jacqueline is highly qualified with an MSC in Healthcare Management, BA Hons in Business Management, and holds a BSC Certificate in Freedom of Information and a Data Protection Practitioners qualification.

Jacqueline started Leadership Through Data to transform the way people learn about Information Management and avoid making training a tick-box exercise.
