"Jennifer was both a coach and a mentor to me, she was incredibly professional, very knowledgeable, and articulated positional responsibilities perfectly. When she lectured or presented she had a commanding presence. If I ever had the opportunity to work with Mrs. Furlong again it would be my pleasure. I hold her in the highest regard."
"Jen is highly successful in teaching people the ins and outs of public speaking, and getting them comfortable to speak in front of a group. Jen has helped students evolve from a student cowering behind a desk, afraid to speak, to being able to stand in front of a group and make a presentation. Her ability to help students get comfortable in front of a group through patience and coaching has helped many students over the years."
"She is personable, outgoing, and enthusiastic. I can gladly recommend Jennifer as a gifted public speaker and instructor.
"I would highly recommend Jennifer to any organization seeking a highly competent consultant in the communications or public speaking arena."
"Jen is someone with whom I desire to stay in touch because she is one of those unforgettable people that continues to grow and contribute to those around her."
"Jennifer has ensured the success of many students by developing curriculums associated with communication skills. She exhibits excellent communication skills in her approach to scholastics, public speaking, and a business perspective. I would highly recommend Jennifer in any capacity associated with communication skills."
