It was an absolute pleasure working with Jennifer. She was our keynote speaker and facilitator for our first ‘Unconference’ for the MPI Ottawa chapter and this educational session wouldn’t have come together without her. She was very hands-on in developing the design of the sessions as soon as she came on board with us. Not only did all members of the planning team rave about working with her but also on our survey we had nothing but positive feedback about her from attendees. Here is an example of a comment ‘Jennifer Spear was excellent, she set the stage to ensure the success of the breakout groups, challenged us and brought a lot of value.’ I would highly recommend Jennifer and...
