“I can’t tell you how much we loved working with Jennifer – she delivered a terrific experience for our participants. I really appreciated how much she engaged in understanding the event we wanted to create and then did the work to make it happen. Her contribution was more than being our MC or comedian, she helped co-design our program and because she understood our audience and our event was able to be flexible and manage the event so that it delivered for the people attending.
Jennifer was a total delight to work with – she was generous with her time and ideas and helped us structure an evening that was fun, celebratory and had plenty of laughs. 
We had a great time with Jennifer, she has a wonderful, kind energy and is a bundle of fun to spend time with. After a really intense day, it was a real tonic to laugh and be able to relax knowing that she had the evening in hand. 
11/10 would engage Jennifer again!”
