Jackie Wade is the petite and passionate sales dynamo from Dublin. Committed to ethical and professional selling practices, Jackie is focused on helping small businesses succeed in highly competitive marketplaces.
Jackie’s love affair with sales and selling began when, aged six, she took charge of the ‘sweetie department’ in her grandmother’s corner shop in Ireland and quickly found a way of earning some real pocket money for the first time. A series of (un)fortunate events during her teenage years, resulted in her running a number of market stalls across the city, and developing a natural flair for cross-selling, upselling and generally winning sales in hard times. Her career took an international twist when aged 21, she graduated with a degree in International Marketing and Languages and had the opportunity of supporting Irish Software Companies looking to expand into European markets. Her wanderlust and international sales career boasts over 15 years of global business development, working in practically every corner of the globe, spear-heading real growth across a diverse range of companies.
In 2000, following the birth of her twins, Jackie parked her international corporate heels and set up her own business as a sales consultant and trainer; in 2004 the company became “Winning Sales”. In just a few years, she has become a sought-after sales trainer, working in football’s premiership boardrooms, top universities and law firms, as well as with a host of local businesses and enterprise agencies. Whether as a trainer, coach or motivational speaker, Jackie’s Irish charm and self-deprecating humour, knowledgeable content and memorable case studies all serve to inspire and motivate audiences of every background across the globe.
