Jennifer understands something critical for good facilitation: that not every workshop participant is 100% convinced of the process, and that everyone in the room is starting from different initial conditions. She has a keen perceptiveness about people, and about diversity of mindsets, that enhances her efficacy as a workshop leader. Jennifer is approachable and “real,” and is able to connect to individuals in diverse groups. Her workshops do not push participants too hard to “buy into” the content. As a leadership instructor, I value that quality as it is one that I try to cultivate myself.
“Jennifer is really bright and quick to see things from new perspectives. At the same time she is accessible and creates an environment where it is easy to share. A delightful combination that allowed me to have several powerful “ah-ha” moments. Not to mention that the tools she uses are excellent!
Hope I’m in Tokyo on the right dates again and I can “play” more with the tools. Truly lovely day. Thank you!”
MaryAnne joined the Ikigai X Points of You® and Points of You® Experience Taster Sessions in July 2019
“It was great session with many thanks. I think that we understand each other by scientific approach, which are more information than the one from usual communication. Showing our tendency helps to understand what we are missing this stage, and give us some findings and hints to improve them in future – but I think that perfect circle is not always necessarily as it would create unique company culture to become strength. This gives us great opportunity to consider what company’s shape we are setting out in the future.”

“It was in English so the whole training was accessible. Jennifer was very enthusiastic and the whole workshop was fun.
It was great that we could start playing with the cards from the beginning and practice almost all day long.
The location was also quite convenient and the room was bright and intimate making it easier to share things with other participants.”
Participant of Points of You® Practitioner Training June 2018
As part of a bilingual PR agency, employees are often required to pitch proposals and project ideas to English speaking C-level clients. A tailor-made 4 session programme focused on visuals (body language and slide deck), preparing an audience focused message, and opening and closing with impact.
Participants were given multiple opportunities to deliver real presentations and receive peer and trainer feedback to develop skills.
“It was straightforward and we had clear instructions for what to prepare before each training session.”
“You taught me many new techniques for how to prepare the presentation, not only how to speak in front of people”
“I am satisfied with the contents! but 4 classes might be short?”

Jennifer has touched my heart first with her soft voice and secondly with her sensitivity. I love the way she challenges me always to go further by helping me to find the courage to be truly me and how she gives me inspirations with her depthless resources. She is so friendly and wholehearted, totally non-judgemental and its so easy to trust her and to connect with her. She always hears more than what’s said.
