Jen has made it her mission to overhaul corporate communications from lacklustre to the remarkable. She has a knack for converting uneasy speakers into brilliant presenters by working closely with them to increase their confidence, authority and presence when addressing any audience. Her natural ability to connect, listen and emphasize with people also helps her to craft winning pitches that focus on identifying the most convincing arguments and encouraging her clients rehearse until they’re unconsciously confident and word perfect. Since 2005, she has advised blue chip organizations and government bodies on their internal and external communications, facilitating transformational training events and deconstructing thousands of corporate pitches and presentations.
