Meet Carlene Jackson

With an upbringing in far-flung places such as the Caribbean and a remote croft in Scotland, it’s safe to say that Dublin-born Carlene Jackson is used to doing things a little differently.

After a successful career in tech and sales, Carlene founded Cloud9 Insight in 2010, running the day-to-day operations from her then home in the Alps. The struggle to find new talent, along with being regularly snowed in and cut off from the outside world, Carlene settled in Brighton where she now runs Cloud9 Insight from offices overlooking the stunning South Downs National Park.

As a passionate advocate for company culture and neurodiversity in business, Carlene regularly appears in the media, including BBC World and The Guardian. Notable recognition includes:

“I’m used to doing things differently, and anyone who knows me will attest to my love of change and disruption. I realise that not everyone is so readily able to embrace this mindset, and that’s why I love my job – partnering with businesses as they go through a significant change, holding their hand through a transformation, and knowing that at the end of it all they will be stronger, more efficient, and ready for almost anything that the future brings them.”
