WHAT CLIENTS SAY

 

Our luncheon speaker was a real ball of fire; she captivated the audience as she described the impact of domestic violence in the workplace. Ms. Jenkins’ manner of presenting the information was very effective in holding the audience’s attention. It was obvious she knew her business and had a real passion for the cause.

This was a great course; I enjoyed the group interaction and the different spin on cultural diversity and looking beyond racial/ethnic issues and recognizing diversity in terms of economics, language, regional difference, and educational status, etc.

Your motivational talk, The Fire Inside, was one of the best I have ever heard. Everyone in the audience was captivated. The power and emotion of your voice is a rare talent. Our group was really privileged to hear you speak.

“Ms. Jenkins has the ability to present information in a direct, accurate and respectful manner and encourages interaction and participation through discussion and role-playing activities.”

Your workshop was extremely informative. We have received feedback from several attendees who have mentioned that they were not aware of a lot of the information that you provided to them about sexual harassment.

Congratulations and thank you! Your efforts contributed the huge success of the 5th annual Harris County Hospital District and VIVA Project Domestic Violence Awareness Open House; we estimate that over 450 people participated in this year’s event. Your passionate description of the dynamics of domestic violence was incredibly compelling. Many of the audience members commented on what a terrific presentation you gave.
