Jacqueline Hiddlestone

Jacqueline takes the approach of learning together where the art of conversation is but one vital learning tool. With online and virtual meetings increasing throughout these unusual times, group discussions help disseminate knowledge through shared experience and pragmatic dialogue; as well as checking in that we are each OK. To quote Randolph Bourne: 'A good discussion increases the dimensions of everyone who takes part.'

With over 30 years in the private, public and academic sectors, Jacqueline combines academic endeavours with practice. She has covering strategy development through to operational delivery, compliance and regulation, seeking to apply her learnings in each organisation she’s worked in or on, across volunteering, academia and Board roles. In combining academia with depth of practical application, Jacqueline has drawn on her various qualifications to enhance her experience and improve her business document and report writing to Board level and publishing.

Jacqueline is currently completing her Doctorate of Business Administration based on an action learning approach as part of her ongoing scholar-practitioner learning. She has published in peer-reviewed journals, presented conference papers, and provided peer reviews for both; along with being a co-chair for the strategy track of the Strategy Special Interest Group at the British Academy of Management. Jacqueline is currently combining her strategy to operations delivery consulting with teaching undergraduate and masters subjects at various universities, as well as recently developing and delivering a case-study masters level subject.

  • How it works

    Weekly group sessions are hosted by mentors, coaches, and club moderators. There are sessions where attendance is free and sessions where you must have a premium user account. The latter are identified with an icon.

  • How do free group sessions work?

    Free group sessions are typically held in a club setting. Attendance is free, but registration is required to receive the session link. You may need to join the club before you can join in the specific sessions.

  • How do paid group sessions work?

    There will be times in your journey when you will need to work in smaller groups to accomplish a specific goal or milestone, such as submitting a paper to a conference or journal. Our coaches will gladly assist you in this undertaking. You can either upgrade your account to one of the doctoral journeys or use Brain Coins for on-demand support to join paid group sessions.

  • How do I find if a Professor is available?

    Within the community, our doctoral supervisors and Professors are referred to as 'Mentors'.

    On Saturdays, one of our mentors hosts a free, open-door session with no pre-determined agenda. The event is free to attend, but registration is required. Search and join the 'Professor is in' session from the list.

    In addition, our mentors attend the weekly club sessions. The participant list shows which mentor will be there for that session.

Ahmed I.

Thesis stage: PostDoc & Continued Training

For the more than 15 years (with the last 10 being in consultancy), I had been looking for ways to contribute to organizations that are interested in growth and broad-based development. I graduated from the DBA programme last year (2019), the course has accelerated my progress in understanding of organizations and now the doctoratehub is assisting me in sharpening these skills towards my interesting journey...I thank the providers of knowledge in the doctotratehub in providing this platform.

The fact that you are readily available and providing the needed support is what I consider invaluable. So many lessons learned. It helps students because they no longer feel isolated. Keep up the good work.
