About the owner
Having worked for over 20 years in consulting and in the corporate world, Jessica opened JRW Consulting in London in 2018, on the banks of the River Thames.
Prior to starting JRW Consulting, Jessica was CEO of a high-end Swiss watch company based in Geneva, where she set up a new global strategy and spent several years dealing with the challenges of transformation and turn-around management, negotiating globally and working across many different cultures. Thanks to this experience, she knows that what may look like smooth sailing in a presentation can represent a bumpy journey towards implementation, especially when running a day-to-day business at the same time. To have had the opportunity to experience both sides of change management in depth – the strategy on paper and the implementation in reality – has given Jessica a deep insight into the potential struggles organisations may experience, enabling her to identify solutions during turbulent times.
Before entering the corporate world in 2014, Jessica was a partner at Switzerland’s largest 360-degree brand consulting firm, where she enjoyed leading the advisory services team and working with world-renowned brands.
Jessica’s broad experience in management, business consulting, branding and corporate communications for global brands is complemented by her executive master’s degrees in business administration (University of St. Gallen, Switzerland) and communications management (University of Lugano, Switzerland). She’s experienced in boards in Europe and Asia and works fluently in English, French and German

At JRW Consulting, we pay close attention to WHY things are done and HOW they are done, and not simply to WHAT needs to be done. We walk the talk and put our core principles at the heart of every project we take on.
Extraordinary results call for extraordinary ways
extraordinary /ɪkˈstrɔːd(ə)n(ə)ri, ɛkˈstrɔːd(ə)n(ə)ri, ˌɛkstrəˈɔːdɪn(ə)ri/
The extraordinary happens when we overachieve: when we come up with a solution that you have not thought of, and when the job is done faster and more precisely than you are used to.
Outstanding quality is our competitive advantage
One of our most important principles is to provide outstanding quality work, because quality is and remains a competitive advantage.
“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” L. Boltzmann
Clarity is a beautiful thing. Therefore, JRW communicates transparently and in a way that all stakeholders can understand.
Daring to do things differently
We enjoy challenges that make us leave our comfort zone, because we believe that growth can only happen if we are moving away from what we already know and do.
Uncommon sense, and how to deal with people
By arriving at problems with an open mind and some ‘uncommon sense’ – an attitude of looking for answers in unexpected places and thinking beyond traditional linear pathways – we will work with you to resolve the challenges facing your organisation.
More than words – implementation
We promise to work with you to find a solution, whatever the circumstances… whether you need a reliable chaser or a versatile negotiator. Whatever your requirements, we will be dedicated to implementing the strategy agreed upon together.
