Jess Hill was pitch perfect. She nailed the brief and exceeded expectations. She took the audience on a very human, measured yet challenging journey through the difficult terrain of domestic abuse, bringing research and fresh insights that brought light bulb moments, and had people talking after the event. She also engaged with audience members and key stakeholders beautifully before and after the event.
