We were excited to bring Jenean to speak at our woman's summit event, and she did not disappoint. She shared from her book, Finding Your Lighthouse: A Leadership Guide to Navigating Change. Her presentation was insightful, engaging and relevant. It was a pleasure working with her.

~Michele Webb, Chairman of the Board, Lake Havasu Area Chamber of Commerce

We invited Jenean to be our Keynote speaker opening our conference, “Elevate HR” asking her to offer solutions to some of the most challenging issues facing our profession today. Jenean encouraged our participants to both make small steps to invite personal growth and also dig deep and look for ways that we are impeding our ability to shine as professionals. Her encouragement to “Stand in our Strength” set the perfect tone for our conference.

~Jennifer Elmer, Assistant Director, Human Resources, Facilities Management, University of Arizona
