Jayne Graham MBE

Straight talker

Jayne Graham has helped hundreds of people who run small businesses, Charities and projects across the UK to improve their results by making changes in the way they think about, and do, business.

With 30 years of experience, a reputation for strategic thinking and straight talking and a head full of ideas, Jayne exudes a passion for making a difference for her customers. Her services have often been described by the people who have benefited as ‘realistically priced, but with an impact that’s priceless’.


Jayne doesn’t feel the need to conform to traditional business thinking or methods. She’s known for being a bit of a maverick at times. Her focus is people and results, in that order.

She explains “Over the years I’ve met lots of people who are working tirelessly to achieve someone else’s picture of success, or to mirror the way their peers are doing business, and more often than not that creates a dischord that leads at best to disillusionment and at worst ultimate failure.

My grandfather once told me to thine own self be true – it was maybe that which brought out the maverick in me!”


Jayne was awarded an MBE for services to small businesses in the North East in the Queen’s 90th Birthday Honours List 2016.

“Jayne Graham is an ‘innovation think-tank’, but you won’t find her wasting time re-inventing the wheel. She offers critical and objective thinking, and takes an honest approach based on her vast experience and her undisputable integrity”


Whether you’re absolutely clear about where you’re heading but need some help to get there, or you’re at a crossroads and need support to work out which way to turn, Jayne will offer you good counsel and generously share her knowledge and experience to help.

Jayne has enabled her customers to adopt new, more effective business models, to resolve immediate and longer term challenges by offering solutions and fresh ideas, and to improve their chances of acquiring new customers and supporters by transforming the way they think about, and use, digital communications.


After completing a business degree in the 1980s, Jayne worked in the recruitment industry for 15 years, with a corporate board position under her belt by her late 20s. By her mid 30s Jayne had led turnover growth from £5m to £24m with a solid net profit return, through introducing blue chip clients, transforming business practices, and demonstrating the impact of strong, positive leadership.

Having worked nationally from a Yorkshire base, in 2000 Jayne returned to her native North East to take on the role of CEO of Business Link County Durham, ultimately leaving to set up 2020 Consulting in 2004.
