Working with Jackie was great preparation for teaching graduate courses. At the end of the process, I was comfortable, ready, and excited to jump into teaching. I can honestly say working with her made me a better communicator and teacher. She has a great laid back style but keeps your feet to the fire.

Working with Jackie really opened up the team’s mind to new ways of preparing to speak publicly. The fact that we did the work in a group setting allowed us to really learn from one another and see where our stories connect.
Missy Kurzweil, Creative Director, Blue State Digital
Thank you for how much thought and care you put into our sessions. They were so worthwhile and changed the way I think about speaking. My presentation went great today!! I felt very prepared and confident and the idea was so well received.
Jess Mack, Vice President of Strategy and Communications, Global Health Corps
The workshop you provided our team was totally energizing and SO hugely helpful.
Emily May, Executive Director, Hollaback
Jackie got me to clarify my goals, hone my “big idea,” and leverage my soul-power into a killer TED talk.
Jessica Robles-Morales, Deputy Director, Women’s Center for Gender Justice @ John Jay College
It was such a pleasure to host Bespoken at John Jay College! We went on a site visit at Democracy NOW and the students were asked to introduce themselves to their donors and staff (including Amy Goodman). As our students were speaking I could see them applying the concepts we discussed and practiced during the Bespoken workshops. It was great!
Senior Global Design Director at Gap Inc.
The work we did together was so helpful and necessary for me! It made me much more self-aware and confident. I felt prepared for interviews both in print and video-both with my messaging and my own body language.

So many great topics were covered. Each section was clear, concise, and actionable. There is a lot I can digest and start working on at work tomorrow.
Hanah Wade, Sr. Account Executive, DDB New York

Jackie led an incredible workshop that provided participants with a new and fresh perspective on effective communication. The opportunity to practice in person and get real-time feedback was invaluable.
VP, Development & Strategy, 70 Faces Media
I worked with Jackie on a formal presentation to a group of influential funders in the philanthropic world. Jackie was incredibly helpful working through my particular issue -- pacing -- and with general best practices for public speaking. She was also a delight to work with, making the sessions an absolute pleasure.
