Jeanne M. Stafford | Professional Speaker and Communications Trainer

"“You conducted the conversation and interaction in a way where people really got to know each other in a very short period of time. My teams would benefit from being in this space where they can sit across the table with someone completely different and feel safe enough to talk about themselves and listen to others. They can walk away with something new which will help them work better as a team and contribute as a member in it.""

"I hired Jeanne Stafford to help me create a keynote and in the process I wrote a book! In a very short amount of time I was shocked at how much I produced. I felt supported by Jeanne and her method of thinking YES helped me to create this unexpected outcome. I’m an author and more comfortable than ever engaging the audiences I speak to."

"Jeanne’s Strategic Communications Training at Molloy College has been transformational. Our administration and department heads are learning skills they are regularly applying in their work the moment they walk out the door of her interactive workshops. Her delivery is refreshing and so far the value is immeasurable."
