Speaking Testimonials

Passionate, dynamic and tender. I knew Jeanne would be a good fit when I asked her to come speak with our Akira managers. I was blown away by her ability to connect with the audience so quickly and authentically. By the end of the day, our managers were already using some of the tools Jeanne had shared with us. Jeanne definitely has her bag of magic tricks that can help transform and improve every business culture!

I have attended several of Jeanne Malnati’s classes where she speaks to professionals about communication tools to aide in building stronger relationships. I find her to be an insightful, candid and engaging speaker. My personal experience, and as a member of law enforcement, has been that when I attend Jeanne’s classes, I find her information extremely valuable in dealing with both personal and professional relationships. Having her input on a variety of issues is certainly a great template for problem solving.

I have seen Jeanne in action working with teams of people and speaking in front of organizations. She always delivers and her universal message on difficult conversations rings true with all business owners and organizations. Jeanne’s real approach to business, experience and ability to help others deal with difficult conversations head on is invaluable. I am in debt to her for the amazing advice!

Any time you bring someone from the outside in to work with your people, you always ask yourself, ‘Will they get it? Can they connect?’ Usually, the answer is, ‘No,’ but Jeanne is a rare exception. She gets it, she connects instantly, and you’ll know it because your employees will tell you. If you want your people to Care More and Achieve More, Jeanne can help and she’s always on your side. We recommend her highly.
