Jacqueline Frost - Founder and Creative Director
Jacqueline has 30+ years of investment banking and entrepreneurial experience. In her time in banking, she ran the Derivative Sales group as well as serving on the Executive Committee.
In 2009, given this experience of demanding roles in high pressured environments, she began coaching and mentoring senior female executives to share her tips and strategies. It became apparent that if these talented women had access to learn these skills and knowledge earlier in their career, then it would have made a big difference to their abilities to lead, to contribute and to be heard. It would also have a big impact on other aspects of their lives also.
Was there a way to reach many more women, from many companies, many industries and many countries to share these powerful tools and encourage them to become the great leaders they can be?
It turns out the answer was yes. In 2016, she founded Elevate and after seven years over 9000 women have graduated.
She is a mother to 2 children, one still at university and the other enjoying post Uni backpacking. She enjoys travelling – has just come back from a trip to the Yucatan Peninsula and already has Costa Rica booked for next year – as well as skiing and quiet weekends reading on the sofa.
