Overview

Our weekly get-togethers are intended to be interactive, with participants presenting their current drafts, sharing concerns or questions, and receiving and providing feedback.

You can also simply join and listen if you prefer. This is where we can all grow and learn together.

Please keep in mind that all sessions will last the allocated time, and the room may be closed earlier if all participants' questions and topics have been addressed. As a result, we recommend that you arrive at the session's start time.

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.

Ahmed I.

Thesis stage: Post Doctoral & Publishing

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.
