Jean can help you make a valuable contribution
As a keynote presenter, Jean speaks from her heart and reveals authenticity based on actual experience making her unique edge as a speaker. She has the rare ability to tune in and be completely present with the audience and her story telling as if you are there with her. This audience engagement provides a unique opportunity to reflect on ones own experience and tap into the areas of our lives that want to be fulfilled. The piece that is missing, the void, the part of you that wants to give back but doesn’t know how.
THE REAL DEAL
Jean will help you identify that and show you how you can make a valuable contribution to society and the environment. You will feel inspired and full again knowing that you do have the power to change and make a difference in the world. She will show you how to live a life of purpose and re-engage with your life, your work, your passion.
Jean doesn’t want to just share her story with you to inspire you, she wants to be there with you on your journey and her consulting company Urge Consulting provides a framework for you to do that whether you are seeking a personal journey or for a company. But if you want greenwashing – Jean is not for you. Jean is the real deal and wants to fix the worlds environmental and social problems. She knows how to do it – so get ready to create real change and not just talk about it.
“The basis of effective wildlife conservation is working well with people; and this is where Jean has excelled. She is a great communicator and educator. She communicates well with people at all levels: in community education with traditional people and also in high level presentations and in global forums. Her passion and love for her work speaks to any audience and I believe that her story needs to be shared with the world.”
Susan Hunt – Perth Zoo
“I have great admiration for the work she does with the Tenkile Conservation Alliance (www.tenkile.com). I totally understand why she is an award winning conservationist. She is also an accomplished presenter. She was able to convey her passion for a small animal in a remote part of the world to a very mixed audience which was fascinated to learn of the development of her career and the impact her work was having.”
Kerry Nichols – International Women’s Day
“I’ve watched and listened to Jean as she’s presented formally and also when providing input to open forums. She has important lessons to share with others in conservation work and she has the ability to expresses herself plainly and with natural conviction. Her speaking style is clear, confident and engaging, whether the audience is large or small and no matter what the composition.
Her passion for her work and lifestyle choices connects with audiences who, while recognising the often tough and pragmatic path she has followed, are often touched by her vulnerability and the obvious emotional bonds she develops with the communities she supports.”
Tony O’Keefe – Biopama IUCN
“Jean has presented her complex work at several zoo-based events, workshops and conventions including the World Association of Zoos and Aquaria (WAZA) conference in front of hundreds of delegates. She has a professional and precise articulation and is able to speak confidently and with intense passion.”
