Testimonials

Jess was absolutely amazing!!!! I can't describe how fantastic everyone thought she was. We had people from 12-80 years and everyone loved her! A few comments: that she was inspiring. It felt like she was just talking to you. She was funny. An interesting story how she ended up a marathon runner. Parents who came with their kids thought she was a great role model. I've seen many guest speakers at numerous functions, from Australian tourism events, many AFL events and she is the best! It's great how she can balance the serious side with the fun side. She was so engaging.
Alice Springs Netball Association

Jess was excellent and was very well liked by our team. Her message was clear, simple and delivered in a relaxed manner. Her passion for what she does is obvious and I think a reason for her success.
Smartline

Her natural speaking style and ability to connect with the audience is strong and she was really well received. A leading government official, rang me the following day to comment on how much she enjoyed Jess’s delivery. Many other clients have taken the time to let me know that they too really took some good messages away from Jess’s address. So what did Jess do which impressed so many of my clients? Jess is very personable and is open and honest. Jess took time to understand my business and saw how her own journey could compliment the message we wanted to tell which is empowering to my company’s public brand. Jess is warm to the audience and they felt safe asking questions and finding out more about what it takes to succeed. When I think of Jess, she will always have the personal brand of smiling whilst on the way to winning a bronze medal at the Commonwealth Games in a marathon race… people are intrigued by how and why she could do this.
