Jen Grant is a force of nature! She came highly recommended to me by a friend who had seen her speak, and I am so happy she spoke at our conference of School Board Employees. Jen is clever and very funny! Her witty wisdom is grounded in solid practical advice on how to change your life in a positive, effective way. She seamlessly weaved in and out of making us laugh hysterically and sending a powerful message of the importance of less stress in our lives. This, in turn, gives us more happiness, better health, and increased success. We were extremely pleased with her presentation and humorous style and we would welcome her back anytime.

I’ve seen Jen Grant perform and it was honestly life-changing for me. Her ability to find humour in the worst circumstances, and the way she captures the attention of a room as soon as she enters it is inspiring. I am eager to attend ANY talk that Jenn does because she makes the room a much lighter place when discussing some pretty serious topics. Be the person that puts the oxygen mask on your face before – so you can help other people.
