Jackie Weaver, became an internet sensation during lockdown for her firm handling of an online parish council meeting that had descended into bullying and chaos.
She now appears regularly in the media and has her own podcast (@jackieweaverpod).
Join Women in Public Life at the Performing Arts Centre on Wednesday 15 September at 7pm as we find out more about the woman behind the Zoom screen and her ‘plain old common sense’ advice, including how to assert yourself in the workplace and how to take charge of your life. In return, she explores the quirks of Guernsey, including what on earth a Douzenier and a Deputy are.
Jackie is Chief Officer of the Cheshire Association of Local Councils and is keen to encourage everyone to get involved in local democracy, at whatever level suits them. She is also is an Ambassador for Compassion in Politics.
After the event, Jackie will be signing copies of her brand new book “You Do Have The Authority Here – What Would Jackie Weaver Do?”. This is a special privilege for Guernsey as the book isn’t officially released until 16 September. Price £10.99.
