After completing his studies in Organisational Psychology and a brief period in the recruitment industry, Jacques commenced his career at Thomas International as a psychologist and has since worked in a variety of learning and development roles, as well as a series of executive consulting and leadership positions. After his role as International Training Director, Jacques moved into the field of assessment centre design and consulting at Assessment Centre Technologies (Australia).

In his consulting career, Jacques has been involved in all facets of organisational development including business strategy, restructuring, recruitment and talent retention. He has a keen interest in learning and development (personal growth and sustainability of personal change), effectiveness of change management initiatives, strategic alignment of people specific data as well as analytical, statistical and interface related processes aimed at reducing people data to practical, usable pockets of business information. Jacques holds a Bachelors of Commerce and a Bachelors of Arts with Honours in Psychology from the University of Johannesburg, South Africa, as well as a Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology from the University of Pretoria, South Africa.
