Work+Life: Finding the Fit That’s Right for You

I visited with Jean when I was struggling with writing a new speech. Jean has a way of getting to the core of the matter, and actually brought me to tears (good tears) with her questions. She helped me open an avenue that I did not see before. She’s terrific, and I would highly recommend her to anyone.

If you want to work with a professional who writes, consults and can refocus your company’s message, Jean is the person for you!! I had Jean on my team full time as a consultant and production coordinator for a year and have known her for several more. We share ideas and results! She is first class all the way!

One coaching session with Jean and I changed the way I look at presenting a keynote altogether. And as for results: The first client I spoke for after the coaching RAVED about the keynote. I will be back to work with Jean again. If you are in a position where you speak to large groups… even if for the first time… and you want to knock their socks off, I recommend you get together with Jean.

Executive Coaching

Jean assisted me in my preparation for interviews in competition for the Rhodes and Marshall Scholarships. Her careful coaching and innovative review and feedback techniques played a large role in my nomination from Indiana University to represent the school in these competitions. Her advice was invaluable, and I still use the techniques she taught me in interviews today.

Alex Eble

Thank you so much for all the coaching and preparation you provided in preparing for my presentation. The coaching, critiquing and videotaping moved my presentation from ordinary to extraordinary. The presentation was a hit. I felt so confident and was able to speak from my heart. The coaching you provided to put the presentation in the right structure made it simple to deliver. The best part of your work was making the stories come alive. In the end, 100% of the audience registered for my upcoming workshop. I shall always be able to use the magic formula you taught me. Thank you!

Sherri Miller, Founder
Center for Extraordinary Execution

There simply was not a part of this class that I can’t take back. The first class I have ever been able to say that about!!!

Steve Pair

The only reason I gave you all 10’s was because you didn’t have higher numbers to choose from. I appreciate the effort that you put forth and GTE will be a better place because of your efforts.

Your presentation was so well received. It’s evident that everyone was delighted with your presentation skills and so many participants took the time to make note of the ideas they will use. It takes tremendous dedication, practice and experience to achieve the polished, but comfortable style that you have developed. You made the time fly by. Thank you, Jean, for all that you put into making this a successful program for us.

I recently attended Jean Palmer Heck’s 90 minute seminar on media relations at a leadership conference. She presented one of the most stimulating, proactive and interactive workshops I have heard in years.

I learned in your program that we interpret things differently and I’ll now approach my coworkers in a different manner.

Barbara B.

I really enjoyed the program. All my life I felt really stupid because I had a hard time understanding spoken instructions. Now I know it is because auditory learning is not one of my strengths. Thanks.

Linda D.

Thanks for a very comprehensive training course in better understanding your presentation behavior skills. Looking forward to continue the effort. Regards from a wintry Stockholm.
