What Happy Clients Say

Jessica led ChickTech’s three-part “Negotiation and Career Development” workshop series in January 2016. Her presentations were empowering and informative, inspiring many collectively experienced ‘ah-hah’ moments. Speaking from a deep place of truth she led really fantastic, open, vulnerable discussion amongst the attendees. She eloquently answered their questions about negotiation, networking, and advancing one’s career. Within the course of the three week series, one woman negotiated for a $5k pay raise!
— Shaelyn Watson, ChickTech
I attended the Negotiate Like a Pro workshop lead by Jessica recently, and was surprised that this was not a workshop about being more like a man to get ahead. She talked to the core of why women don’t ask for what they deserve, then encouraged us to confidently step out and use the very traits that are typically characterized as being from the “weaker sex” to be more successful at work. Her techniques feel natural, strong, and dignified. I learned practical tools and tips that not only will lead to great job satisfaction and job performance, but that I can apply to a lot of areas of my life.
— Rebecca Dittmar, Workshop Participant
Jessica presented to our undergraduate and graduate business students and did a fantastic job. Her topic — “Building a Career in Business: What Every College Student Should Know — was spot on. Clear, engaging, and full of info that anyone who wants to move their career forward should hear. We would love to have her back.
