Jordana listened to what we needed and fit the brief perfectly. She was engaging, dynamic and an absolute pleasure to deal with.
Harcourts Rata & Co
By far the best MC we've had at any of our events. Jordana was completely invested to make the night a success. She tailored her performance to suit the audience and connected strongly with the audience.
Jordana was sensational, she brought high energy to our event at Abbotsford Convent, and we have had the most amazing feedback from our attendees about her session. Her engagement from our first call was wonderful, she understood what we were looking for and the audience we were talking to, her pre-event preparation was excellent. We will certainly look to engage her again for other events we run.
The Ascott Limited, Australia
A blessing in disguise! An unfortunate cancellation brought you to us at the eleventh hour. It was a big ask. MC a three-day/night conference overseas in two days’ time. How lucky we were that you came to our rescue. And not only that, our delegates rated you as a highlight of the event. You prepared quickly but in detail, you listened so that you could connect speakers and people, you created energy, and you made people laugh. I loved working with you and I look forward to doing so again!
Alpine Shire Council through Engage! Funding (thanks to the Victorian State Government) were fortunate to engage Jordana to speak to our four secondary school students within Alpine Shire. Delivered over three sessions using magic, mentalism, fun and engaging activities, Jordana is energetic, inspirational, informative and has the unique ability to adjust to the audience amazingly. Both students and staff gained an insight of how to take opportunities to go beyond the comfort zones in fun and informative ways. I would highly recommend any schools to take this opportunity to engage Jordana, this is not just a presentation, it is an interactive session that provokes positive thoughts through engagement with all the audience from junior to senior students and staff alike!
Alpine Shire Council
Jordana spoke as a keynote presenter during our OrthoTech Forum this past July. She was amazing – to say the least! The time and effort she put in ahead of the conference to understand the delegates and review their social pages was fantastic as the presentation was then customised to the practices and industry we work in. Jordana provided an energy-filled hour – that was informative, enjoyable and fun. You actually had take-home material that could be implemented and used to improve your social media and help further growth in your business. Feedback from our delegates was outstanding. Her presentation was one of the highest ratings from our feedback survey that offered the most value overall. I would highly recommend you book this lady for your next meeting or event. She will promise NOT to disappoint.

Kyabram Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc.
An afternoon with the magical Jordana away from the complexity of a major health service and its 2+ years of COVID challenges was awesome. Card games, mystery and fun were all features on the Borensztajn menu; our clinicians and operational leaders filled with the excitement of younger people as they focused on their arts and crafts in the warm sunlight. The few hours spent in the wonder of magic lifted the mood whilst the jokes and laughter flowed throughout the performance. Thank you Jordana for taking us all back to a time when the wonder of magic was the only problem to solve.
The only brief we gave Jordana was to end our 2-day conference with a boom! - And Jordana did just that! She left our audience in a mountain of laughter, wonder and inspiration! Up until the event, Jordana was fantastic to work with - she was proactive, professional, ensured she understood our organisation and our values, and really showed how much she loves what she does. Jordana is full of energy and extremely funny - our staff were fully engaged and energized. Her session entailed useful life tips, arts and crafts that brought to life the child in all of us and a whole lot of magic! She showed us how anyone can learn new skills and become great at them. Thanks a ton Jordana!
We were absolutely delighted with the enthusiasm and genuine joy Jordana brought to our event! The communication prior to the event was a breeze and Jordana met our brief perfectly. It was so refreshing to not be served the same old tired jokes about people, but instead to be wowed, awed and inspired with magic, thoughtful insights and great energy. We were taken on a journey that resulted in a group of people, that are usually quite reserved, running to craft-filled tables trying to build the best Octopus! The resulting laughter and joy was real, and more than one person thanked Jordana personally on the night for her contagious enthusiasm. A memorable experience for everyone. Jordana is inspiring, humorous and a professional entertainer for the modern day. Simply ‘Wonder-Full’. Thank you again for bringing your magic to our Conference.
Advanced Business Manager
Just book Jordana. We wanted a keynote that would bring the energy & fun to an otherwise fairly content heavy conference. Jordana brought this in spades (diamonds, hearts and clubs…) Magic and a message all wrapped up in an entertaining and absorbing package. Our delegates left our conference with a twinkle in their eye and a spring in their step. Jordana was an absolute joy to work with.
Mackay Region Chamber of Commerce
Opportunities to take people out of the hustle and bustle of everyday life provides an opportunity to reflect and recharge our personal batteries. From the moment we engaged with Jordana to set up a session with our teams to do this, we were amazed by the positive vibes, energy and desire to craft an individual session that would exceed our team’s expectation. The energy, engagement, mastery and jokes facilitated by Jordana guided our teams to such a positive and inquisitive space, that they were able to forget the businesses of their everyday lives and reconnect as a team. Thank you Jordana.
Jordana understood the brief and was extremely engaging throughout the session. She worked with us to ensure our goals were met and was flexible with the content on the day.
Jordana Borensztajn came on board as MC for our conference with only four weeks’ notice. Jordana went above and beyond in that short space of time to contact all event speakers and build a rapport with each of them, something I have not experienced with an event MC before. Jordana was a huge asset to our event and played a major role in its successful delivery.
National Marketing Manager
Jordana Borensztajn comes thoroughly recommended. Her vivacious energy combined with an attention for detail made our event not only a crowd success, but an enjoyable process behind the scenes. She was super professional, very relatable and connected well with our audience. A delight to work alongside.
Jordana Borensztajn's energy engaged the audience immediately and took them on a journey; confirming the emotional roller coaster during Covid and acknowledged what we had all collectively achieved together to survive. She then furthered that journey by demonstrating the value in looking at things differently and allowing ourselves time to in effect be present and available. And what could be achieved by this deliberate decision. Jordana continued to engage the audience via her humor and then by her magic tricks to support the message she was relaying. I'm confident attendees went away with the seed planted; to consider thinking about doing things differently in the new world. We felt grateful to have Jordana travel present to us! And everybody who attended loved her :-)

Jordana Borensztajn was the perfect choice to MC and host the Pyrios Grand Luncheon event and fundraiser in support of Plan International Australia. Jordana expertly tied in the themes of the AFL Grand Final in Melbourne and the ICT sector, making up most of the attendee audience, delivering relatable humour that tapped into social psyche and fabulous banter. She’s authentic and draws on her own experience but importantly researched and prepared for the event to ensure she delivered our key messages, and invested significant attention to the feelings and emotion we wanted to achieve with people in the room. In this regard, she’s sensational. Our event also had a heavy theme, Ending Forced and Early Child Marriage – tough gig for a comedic personality to weave in, however she met this challenge and brought a lightness to the room ensuring everyone was connected and the event remained uplifting… No easy task! Her professionalism meant she could engage, set an atmosphere, build rapport with the crowd, have us laughing and keep us all to run sheet time! We’re thrilled to have worked with her for our event and would highly recommend booking her for any function, we have no hesitation in saying she will thoughtfully prepare and absolutely deliver an entertaining experience for all” !
Corporate Partnerships Manager
Plan International Australia team
Beyond Excellent – She was just so great. Our Guests feedback was brilliant, they all thought she did a brilliant job.
From the very first briefing call Jordana has been an absolute pleasure to deal with. In fact, like no other. She really engaged and learned about our group which was evident on the day. Her energy is a breath of fresh air, although her request for me to capture a photo proved difficult. She doesn’t stand still long enough! Getting down amongst the audience is something that particularly works well to keep the group engaged. She was wonderful and I’ll be thinking of ways to have her back in the future, even if on a smaller workshop level.

Jordana Borensztajn was a brilliant keynote speaker choice for our WYNnovation Summit. I knew this from the moment we engaged her. She was enthusiastic about the event, eager to learn everything she could about our purpose, vision and audience, and really embraced the opportunity. Jordana presented confidently and in a way that was interesting, keeping the audience’s attention throughout. Jordana was also incredibly generous with her time, staying for the duration of the event chatting to delegates throughout the breaks and answering any questions they had. Taking it upon herself to do some research before the day enabled Jordana to feature businesses that were in the room in her presentation, providing a personalised experience and REAL examples to cement her key messages. As an event organiser it’s a relief when you engage an enthusiastic, well-prepared and organised speaker and that’s exactly what Jordana is, highly recommended!

Mount Scopus Memorial College
When it comes to the egotistical world of social media, no-one can turn the comedic blowtorch on our conceits and vanities like Jordana Borensztajn. Her one-woman show Social Needia was ‘a laugh a minute’. Full of self-deprecating, acerbic one-liners, the audience couldn’t help but be swept along by Jordana Borensztajn’s impeccable timing and razor sharp observations that are not only true, but very, very funny. Highly recommended.
Rising star… Ridiculously good.
Dave Hughes, Nova 100’s Hughesy & Kate
Her tone is spot-on and self-deprecating in all the right places... Lots of laughs… One to watch.
Jordana Borensztajn's like a bolt of electricity. She's enthusiastic and her material has real substance. She has the ability to communicate to people that understand social, as well as those that don't. Even my Mum would understand the jokes."Plus it was really diverse. It wasn't just about social media; it was about life - and the fundamental shift we've made over the last five years. "She actually made me cry tears of laughter. It had been a long time since I'd had one of those laugh-cries. #winning
Thinktank Social, on Social Needia: The Epidemic during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2013
Jordana Borensztajn is an exciting, relevant and dynamic performer. Her skill and knowledge of all things social media provides some essential learning for any audience wanting to connect digitally... AND... she's funny!
Humour Australia (HA!), on Social Needia: The Epidemic during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2013
Witty, highly entertaining, completely relatable, irrefutably honest, up-to-the-minute comedy.
Jordana Borensztajn has captured the silliness of the social media obsession with hilarious insights. With style and a clever script, she uses a multimedia approach to highlight some of the bizarre things we do with Facebook and our mobile phones. It’s a whole new way of communicating - without having to speak or look at who we’re talking to. She bases her clever observations on herself, so if you are embarrassed, it’s because she opens your eyes to yourself. Wonderful.
