Take advantage of changeTM

Meeting Planners

Our job is to make you look good. Period.

Why choose Jennifer?

Audiences no longer want to be passive attendees; they want to be active participants.

What if you could have your whole audience fully engaged, learning, laughing, connecting, and participating?

What if you didn’t have to worry about timing, flow, tech glitches, or the unexpected things that always come up at the last minute?

Regardless of the constraints, Jennifer creates experiential, highly engaging, informative, and fun EXPERIENCES. She has everyone engaging at unprecedented levels. Audiences of 50 to 5,000 on their feet laughing while they learn experientially.  Virtual Events…? Don’t worry, We Got This! We take into consideration the venue or the technology, the constraints, the audience and most importantly – your objectives and then we design the Experience.

Jennifer talks about being UnScripted, but you can rest assured she is one of the most prepared speakers you will work with. Prepared for the UnExpected, the UnPredictable, and the UnAvoidable, and when these happen she will be UnFlappable. From last minute room changes to technology malfunctions, times when you expected 50 and got 500, or sudden time crunches and you need to get back on schedule – no worries, Jennifer’s Got This!

Who benefits from Jennifer’s message?

Because change is happening everywhere, UnScripted Keynotes are appropriate across all industries and for all levels, we tailor our message to resonate with your people and to complement your theme.

Jennifer’s message is good at any time during a Conference, and clients have specifically said:

  • Kicked off the Conference with all attendees using the right mindset and ready to learn”
  • “Energized the audience after lunch and inspired them for the rest of the day”
  • Closed the Conference, incorporating our themes and inspired them to take action”

Big stages, small stages, in bars and even on a plane (!) Jennifer has delighted audiences. Often rated the highest speaker at industry conferences and events, Jennifer delivers an impact.

And because Jennifer spends time to understand the client, the audience, the industry, and the unique objectives of the event, she is then able to design her talk to deliver impact to your specific group. She does not just show up, speak and leave – she is fully committed to your event. She will partner with you to help design the most engaging and impactful experience for your audience.

Jennifer is a recovering corporate executive and understands firsthand the scripted environments your audience endures. She incorporates humour and improv in her work that delivers the message in a memorable and engaging way.

IMPROV…?  Don’t squirm.  We got this!

“improv? I don’t think our group will go for that.”

“my group won’t participate”

“my group is full of introverts, no way will they go for it”

“our senior leaders will not do that”

You’re not alone! We’ve heard it before and we GET it. It’s a risk doing something new and different but remember… Our job is to make you look good. (Period). We wouldn’t dream of doing anything to risk that.

Full engagement. Every time. From Everyone.

We don’t put anyone “on the spot”, no need to perform or be funny. It’s about adopting the important principles of improv through experiential exercises designed to allow participants to feel and experience concepts – not just hear about them. The physical experience and the personalized debrief cement the learnings and lead to real Ah Ha’s that then get translated into new behaviours back at work and home.

If you want to spark new thinking, if you want people engaged differently… you might have to go off your usual script.

Where in the world is Jennifer?

We enjoy working internationally, nationally, and close to home in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Comments from Meeting Planners

“What do you do when you have a very serious ‘venue’ challenge and need a speaker who can strategically curate content that is relevant and delivered on a plane?

Easy – you call Jennifer Spear!  Jennifer is brilliant.  She immediately understood the unique opportunity and provided truly innovative solutions.  One of the things I

respect most about her, is the preparation time she invests to ensure success.  Jennifer is a complete professional who is a joy to work with.  I now have her on speed-dial.”

“It was an absolute pleasure working with Jennifer. She was our keynote speaker and facilitator for our first ‘Unconference’ for the MPI Ottawa chapter and this educational session wouldn’t have come together without her. She was very hands on in developing the design of the sessions as soon as she came on board with us. Not only did all members of the planning team rave about working with her but also on our survey we had nothing but positive feedback about her from attendees. I would highly recommend Jennifer and truly hope I have the opportunity to work with her again in the near future.”

Ashley Craven

MPI Ottawa Education Programming Committee Event Lead

“Jennifer Spear is a gifted speaker who knows how to engage an audience, shake participants out of their comfort zones and help them start implementing strategies immediately. A frequent speaker at CSTD events including the national conference and the national symposium, she always receives the highest acclaim from participants. Not only does she provide memorable, informative sessions, but she has audiences laughing, standing, and participating at an unprecedented level. Regardless of the space or time constrictions we may have placed upon her, Jennifer was able to adapt her content to our audience and our event while still managing to deliver superior results.

As a conference planner, I have always found Jennifer to be a creative partner willing to test new strategies to help us boost attendance and engagement. She’s a pleasure to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to deliver fresh, positive and uplifting experiences to their colleagues, attendees or employees. I have no doubt she’ll prove an asset to your event.”
