Dive in to Cloud9 Insight’s press and media features as we recap from October 2020
Cloud9 Insight CEO Carlene Jackson joined forces with other successful entrepreneurs to offer free support and career advice to young people rocked by Covid-19.

Cloud9 Insight CEO Carlene Jackson was profiled in Family Friendly Working magazine, discussing her views on Dyslexia as a ‘gift’ that’s helped her business success.
If you’re dyslexic, you can never truly fail, because you simply accept that succeeding first time may not happen so you’re going to have to find a way around the problem. You learn differently, see the world differently and these things are very useful when you’re an entrepreneur.

“Firms just need to understand the value of having people that don’t think in a traditional way. We find the ability to focus and be loyal are strong autistic traits, while being creative and an out-of-the-box thinker is a dyslexic’s contribution. Why wouldn’t we want this in our business?”
“Organisations need to make sure that the demographics of who they employ reflects the demographics of who they’re selling to, bcause it’s diffuclt to understand them otherwise. There’s so much opportunity to learn when you have conversations with colleagues across different parts of the organisation, and I really want to make sure that we work as a team.”

“I am lucky in running a Cloud-based Microsoft consultancy – it’s easy to work from anywhere with good WiFi. The kind of trip we took was also a great chance to think about a future strategy for the business while I wasn’t working day-to-day in it.”
