Rave reviews

“We asked Jean to speak at NSA-Colorado, and we are so glad we did. We have a discriminating audience with lots of CSPs and CPAEs who demand tactical and high-level information. She wowed them all! Everyone left with information they could use right away to make their talks more experiential and get more bookings. Jean’s talk is tailored perfectly to the needs of NSA members, and I highly recommend her for any chapter.”

~ Traci Brown, VP of Programs and President-Elect, NSA-Colorado

Richard Bryan raves about Workshop University“When Jean DiGiovanna spoke to the NSA-Colorado Chapter, I found her techniques useful in making my program more interactive. Following that, I hired her, and she helped me transform my keynote into a workshop for business owners that was far more interactive. I’m getting great referrals and reviews, and my product sales increased from 35% to 65%.”

~ Richard Bryan, Strategic Leadership Speaker & Expert

Merit Gest raving about Workshop University“I hired Jean to help me transform my Vistage workshop. She reviewed every slide and script, and asked insightful questions. I implemented her recommendations and saw a huge increase in results. Jean’s Workshop University® process gave me a new way to deliver my material that is much more engaging for participants. They have more fun. They learn more. My scores went up dramatically, and my business has increased because of the way we redesigned my ‘Next Steps’ handout. I saw an immediate ROI after working with Jean.”

~ Merit Gest, Sales Performance Expert and VP of Membership, NSA-Colorado
Sharon Weinstein“Jean DiGiovanna definitely presents with the WOW factor! NSA-IL attendees at her recent 4-hour workshop were overwhelmed with her style, delivery, and more. Jean is a brilliant communicator. Billed as a “Double Header Program: Double your Bookings” the program was that and much more. Jean conveyed her message with skills that are unmatched in the industry; it is a challenge to speak to one’s peers, and she was, and is, a class act! Her ability to interact with and engage participants was beyond amazing. From handouts to tools, from style to presence, Jean DiGiovanna is a natural trainer, and I recommend her highly to any adult learning audience.”

~ Sharon M. Weinstein, Speaker/Author/Work-Life Balance Coach (Program Committee for NSA-Illinois)
