"Jenny is sensitive to group dynamics and responds appropriately, generating a trusting
and safe environment particularly with groups of 12 or less. She is non-judgemental of
seemingly incongruent participant behaviours and challenges her own assumptions
before exploring those behaviours in an empathetic way. She builds rapport easily
using her open and relaxed style. Jenny encourages and continuously reinforces open
communication within the groups with which she works.
Jenny has developed a “sixth sense” for time: when to bring a discussion to a close,
when to change the topic, when to cut off someone who has talked too long, when to let
the discussion run over the allotted time, and when to let the silence continue a little
longer. She appreciates life’s ironies, is able to laugh at herself and shares the laughter
of others in the group."

Jenny recently presented to my group of second-year teachers on Cultivating Culture.
Her approach was very professional, well prepared and met the brief that we had discussed previously giving these teachers early in their career a good understanding and lots of practical ideas on establishing classroom culture. I would certainly use Jenny again.

I wanted to thank you so much for your Growth Mindset presentation. Your passion for it shines through.....and is infectious! I see GM as a whole approach geared to coach students in emotional strength/ strategies for learning. Your "scripting" is awesome! GM was very well received ....it’s always inspiring to see inspired teachers.
