Testimonials for Jehan Casinader

I was absolutely blown away by his professionalism, the sincerity of his message and the power behind it. There’s no better endorsement than the fact that one of our delegates told me how personally he was impacted by Jehan’s keynote speech and that his presentation alone was worth the whole conference registration fee.

Courageous. Inspiring. Practical. Jehan presented a keynote on mental health to around 400 in-house lawyers at Te Papa. His presence, energy and vulnerability captivated the audience throughout. Real stories of difficult or traumatic situations were communicated with sensitivity and accompanied by deep insights. Lawyers can be a tough crowd, but delegate feedback was off the chart for Jehan’s session. This is a testament to his message and heart.

Having seen the effect his story, and the tools he offers to help people reshape their own stories, had on my Senior Leadership Team, I have no hesitation in commending him as a keynote speaker and presenter of rare talent.
Tauranga City Council

Jehan is an incredible speaker — but the profound impact he leaves on people is just second to none. As a region that has been on the receiving end of relentless negativity, Jehan’s kōrero was perfectly on point. He is a gifted storyteller and orator, and we are proud to have him as an extended member of our whānau.

When Jehan came to 2degrees, it was our highest-attended wellbeing session to date, and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. People described Jehan as authentic, vulnerable, honest and very polished. His the theme of accountability — and being in control of our own stories — was an eye opener for many. Jehan made the whole experience really easy, and was very adaptable to our changing requirements.
