I’ve been involved in the digital world since 2000 when I designed websites on a Dell Latitude laptop promoting wildlife conservation projects in the Amazonian rainforests of Peru.

I literally built offline in remote jungle lodges, then took the day’s journey by boat to the nearest town and internet cafe to upload changes. If I worked my magic right – the internet was working.

I’ve a long history with promoting environmental projects, and have even been known to appear in the press showcasing biodiversity projects or wildlife moments… back in my corporate days.

Time travel to 2021 and I work with start-ups, game changers, and entrepreneurs all over the world committed to making the world a better place.

I’m dedicated to helping your business thrive by working my magic with digital strategy and I’m committed to helping you build a life and business that is true to you.

As an experienced digital strategist and business coach, let me help you navigate the online world with clarity and confidence.


When I want / need someone to understand the “ME” side of business. Someone to get that I’m not gonna do the same old bs, and that I need someone who can understand me, what is right for me, and how that extends to my biz.

I love that you get that! That it’s not about expert advice and what everyone else is doing. It’s about authenticity. When it sometimes feel like the world is pushing towards “you need to do this….” you offer up an approach more aligned with “what do you want?”

Bio for Adela Mei


Adela Mei, owner and creative director of Jackdaw Digital, has been a digital strategist and business coach for over a decade.

She believes that business can, and should, be used as a force for good, and have a positive impact on society and the environment.

Since 2000 she’s worked in the digital world, promoted wildlife conservation, and produced content for the press. She’s even appeared in the tabloids covered in seaweed to promote environmental issues.

Adela’s work has supported numerous wildlife projects, including sea turtle conservation in Guatemala. This was her favourite project along with working with crocodiles (true story).

When not strategising, Adela likes drinking coffee. And when not drinking coffee, she enjoys breeding pedigree maine coons (yes – posh cats. The really big ones). She also likes eating cheese, with bread and wine, as religiously taught by the French side of her family.

Adela now lives in the rural Southwest of England, leaving her London city life behind her.

When it comes to seeing the bigger picture – the whole scope of a project – this is where you shine.

You are keenly aware of where your clients will succeed and where they could stumble. While it may be difficult to have discussions around the latter, your honesty about these things will go a long way.

Your clients (the good ones) will trust you and recognize that you’re only trying to help them succeed. So be sure to use that visionary skill you have!

Adela is knowledgeable in her field, passionate about helping business owners, and has a gift for straight talking. This is absolutely something that I really value.

She wasn’t shy in telling me where I needed to improve, and was very clear when giving me the steps of advice for improvement and I think this is something I particularly valued about working with Adela.

We had a superb strategy session, it went a bit over the time frame as she is so easy to talk to but she kept things on track, gave me such valuable insights from a skilled eye and has given me an actionable list of things I am going to apply to my business right away!

Thanks Adela, I highly recommend her services to anyone who needs a strategy to boost online presence and reach their goals, with some honest, solid, strategic advice for moving forward.
