“I was happy to organise Jennifer to run a communication workshop for our staff after seeing her present at a PMAANZ conference. Jen and I had discussions prior to the workshop to ensure we were both on the same page with regard to what I wanted the workshop to achieve. The presentation itself was informative and not too long before moving on to an interactive exercise. It was very helpful having an ‘outside’ person present to the staff, and feedback from them was that they found it helpful and informative. Jen is professional, knows her subject well, and I would not hesitate to recommend her to other practices.” – Michelle McKenzie – PM, Otorohanga Medical Centre
“I hadn’t used a business coach before, so I was a bit hesitant, but I knew within the first few minutes of working with her that it was going to be just fine! I quickly figured out that Jen was a down-to-earth person with a genuine interest in getting me to the next level. She picked up on my style of learning very quickly (give me bullet points with not too much fluff!), which I appreciated. Considering this was all done by zoom (admittedly not my favourite method of communicating) it could have been really daunting but wasn’t. As a result of working with Jen, I walked away not only with a plan to help me move forward but also knowledge on what to do when things don’t go according to plan. I highly recommend her to those who can use clarity as well as accountability to support them to get things accomplished in their business.” – Raelene Rees; Raelene Rees Chartered Accountants
“It’s fantastic to have someone looking in at my business from the outside & suggesting things I wouldn’t have thought of, being too close to the business myself. Because Jen isn’t familiar with my specific business, she is able to ask questions & get me thinking outside the box. She has excellent marketing skills & has helped me put a proposal together that I can present to other businesses about my services. It’s like going back to basics again.” – Genevieve McLachlan – Adaptive Technologies
“I had already been introduced to Jen through a business support programme sponsored by another company I work with, so had no hesitation about using Jen’s coaching services. Even though I was a bit wary of increasing my costs during COVID, I had found her previous trainings and tools really useful, so that made me very keen to work with her. Fortunately, I was able to access Regional Business Partner funding to help me complete a programme of coaching with Jen.
I don’t think I fully understood the value of having a ‘coach’ to talk to on a regular basis. Jen always came to our sessions armed with great info, but would also integrate support for areas that we had highlighted as opportunities to improve or grow. Having the regular sessions meant that these items stayed at the top of my mind rather than going to the ‘later’ pile, so it was easier to integrate great practices into my work habits.
I would absolutely recommend Jen as a coach. I have loads of work to carry on with now that this first engagement has ended, but will continue to engage Jen on an ad-hoc basis this year (to help me stay on track!) and plan to schedule coaching with her on a more regular basis in the near future.” – Frances Farrelly – Farrelly Life Limited
“Jennifer Myers was recommended to me by a respected colleague within the industry for our 2014 Annual NZFAA Conference.On the strength of that recommendation and after meeting her in person, I had no hesitation in asking her to facilitate two workshops for the Conference.
Jennifer’s past experience in our industry was a big “plus”, and I appreciated her openness, energy and flexibility as she custom-tailored her material to suit our needs and audience.
I would definitely recommend Jennifer to other conference organisers.”
–David Yates, General Manager – NZFAA
“Once I heard your keynote address at TONIC Conference, I had no hesitation about having you provide training for our team here at SILC, Ltd. Even though cost was a consideration, I believed you were worth the risk!
Our Team Leaders who have participated in the sessions have all given very positive feedback about their experiences. They noted that they are in the process of making some difficult but necessary changes within their teams as a result of the training – learning to let go and delegate more often, supporting others to be more responsible and accountable, and celebrating successes.
I would certainly recommend you to other organisations who are seeking a trainer to work with their team.”
– Terese Germon, Chief Executive Officer, the SILC Charitable Trust
“I was really happy with the session you ran for us at our Staff Conference. I think the level of enthusiasm and contribution from the team was excellent – and it was an early Sunday morning, no less!
I am happy to be an advocate for you to other businesses that are looking to complete a similar workshop. Your relaxed, humourous and very well-organised program were major drivers of a very successful session, where our staff gave their opinions on how our industry may look in 5 years’ time.
You quickly grasped the issues that are important to our industry, and this enabled you to add real value to the discussions.”
– Adrian Paterson, Senior Partner, Paterson Burn Optometrists
“Thank you for being a part of our annual TONIC Conference in November this year . Time and workload management is such a huge issue for the non-profit sector, and it was great to have someone who really knew their stuff presenting.
Your keynote presentation provided some truly practical ideas for non-profit managers who struggle to juggle their many ‘hats’ and the message was delivered at exactly the right level for our conference participants. It was a vibrant presentation with really good use of stories and examples.
You are definitely on our list for future presentations and workshops, and I have no problem recommending you to other organisations.
All the best for your future speaking endeavours.”
– Kerri Tilby-Price, CEO, Exult!
