For over thirty years Jacquie Davis has survived as one of the top operators in a male dominated profession - the secretive, often dangerous world of covert operations. After leaving the police force she worked as a bodyguard, where her training, which included combat training and a willingness to risk everything for 'the client', led her into increasingly dangerous operations, so much so that she became recognised as the world's top female bodyguard.
Jacquie’s first book “The Circuit” is a fascinating account of one woman's amazing experiences involving the dangerous job of rescuing children and adults around the world, to the more glittering world of guarding well-known celebrities such as Diana Ross, Liza Minnelli, J.K Rowling, Nicole Kidman, Sarah Ferguson (formerly HRH The Dutchess of York), teenage heart-throb Justin Bieber and the Beckhams, to name but a few.
In 2011, she was hired by tabloid celebrity Katie Price - AKA Jordan at the time - following intelligence from police that a violent gang targeting premiership soccer stars also had its sights on her. The gang had been going to the homes of footballers and other rich individuals - holding people hostage as they demanded the combinations to safes.
Jacquie Davis has appeared on numerous television and radio shows, both in the UK and USA. A popular ‘guest expert' on chat shows, she has also acted as consultant for television and film production companies and appeared in documentaries as well as being a spokesperson on news programmes for crime related incidents. She was also the Crime Editor for HOT GOSSIP Magazine and has written a column for Combat-online.
Jacquie Davis is trained to a very high level in counter-surveillance, firearms, restraint tactics, bomb search, defensive driving, hostage awareness and survival. Her day-to-day client responsibilities are more about conflict management, strategic planning and tactics than the hyped and distorted Hollywood perception of Bodyguards diving in front of bullets and high speed car chases. In fact, Jacquie never looks after anyone unless there is a real and genuine threat to their life or well-being.
Jacquie Davis addresses conferences and seminars all over the world, where she delivers thought-provoking and inspiring presentations that draw the parallels between the corporate environment and the world of close protection.

Keynote Speaking & Motivational Speaking
A bodyguard's first line of defence is their brain - not brawn - so if you do have to get physical, you've already lost. When you see pop stars and A-List actors being overshadowed by 6' tall and 6' wide lumps of muscle, they are minders, not bodyguards. The role of a bodyguard is to be a discreet and invisible, yet highly invaluable, force of protection.
