Jean worked with me around the world — from employee meetings in Poughkeepsie, to sales meetings in Tokyo, to international analyst meetings in Paris.  She understood IBM’s technology and messaging; she understood my style; and perhaps most important, she understood our audiences. She’s a pro.

Linda Sanford, Senior Vice President
IBM Corporation

Jean helped me make a complex presentation on the current state of genomic research both interesting and involving to a very demanding audience – so much so that I got congratulations on both the content and my delivery.  It was a pleasure to work with her.

Laura Elnitski, Ph.D.

Jean is an innovative communicator with outstanding writing and editing abilities. Her use of language is powerful, fresh and compelling and her unerring understanding of her audience assures that her message is concise, to-the-point and on target.

Joe Gavaghan, Director Corporate Communications
Garda

Jean was recommended to me by a trusted friend — and hiring her as a writing coach was the best thing I’ve done in years.  I now have a blog up and running to great reviews.  Also, even though I’ve been in sales and been presenting my ideas for 30 years, Jean has taught me things I never knew.  Her coaching helps me to learn, grow and improve.  I highly recommend Jean to anyone on any writing adventure!

Susan McKay, EMC Corporation

Jean has an instinctive sense of how to reach an audience, whether it’s a corporate sales force, a group of industry analysts, or parents at a college commencement. She’s a terrific communications partner.

June Rokoff, Co-Founder

Jean is the best business writer I know. I’ve worked with Jean at many high-level IBM meetings. Her clients’ speeches were always the most direct and believable; the most engaging and memorable. She brings that style to everything she does.

I’ve been reading Jean’s work for several years. She doesn’t just know what she’s talking about, she knows how to explain it to others. When it comes to language and effective communication, Jean is the first professional I turn to.

Jean has written several articles and brochures for companies where I’ve had marketing responsibilities. She’s especially adept at making complex concepts accessible and readable. She’s an excellent writer, a quick study, and a joy to work with.

Jean was able to translate the feelings and emotion I felt into the words I couldn’t find.  She truly helped me share understanding with my audience.
