“Working with Jenifer is like working with a demanding personal trainer. She won’t let you be weak in your presentation. She helps you find strength you didn’t know you had, and she challenges you to get better every time you work with her. My ability to make an engaging, authentic and compelling presentation has never been better, and I owe this all to Jenifer’s excellent coaching!”
