Coaching Academy Testimonials
I approached Jenny to coach me through the early stages of launching my own coaching service. She was great at helping to keep me focused and accountable. I really liked linking in with the Happenista project and meeting other like minded women who are out there putting in their best work too. I would recommend Jenny Garrett for coaching if you are serious about growing professionally.
Jenny gave an inspiring talk at the University of Surrey 'Women in Business: The Journey To Success' event for our business school alumni, students, staff and the local business community. We received highly positive feedback on her presentation and I would recommend her for similar events in future.
We were really pleased to have Jenny on board at The Telegraph TeleWonderWomen Women in Politics event and thought she made an excellent contribution to the panel and provided some great insights around women's attitude to leadership and positions of power, women's ambition and challenging the concept of women needing to change their attributes to succeed.
“One of the most inspirational speakers I have met. Jenny was eloquent and modest she totally drew the listeners in. Some of us forgot where we were, we were so enthralled.
Jenny was warm and friendly with an incredible story to tell and was extremely engaging - her determination to achieve was evident. She was passionate yet realistic. She was genuinely inspirational"
While coaching with Jenny, I have had an official promotion and job title change, I have met people in senior positions in other organisations who have recommended me, and seen what I do. I am not afraid to put myself out there and thus have new positive experiences. I thought that coaching was going to be a huge investment. However, I have seen my investment come back 10x
The most useful aspects of the coaching have been how Jenny challenged my thinking in terms of thinking beyond what I see. Enabling me to always look at things from a different perspective and not giving up but being patient and trying over and over again until I get a win.
Having an objective person that is wholly focussed on my aspirations has been a really valuable aspect of the coaching with Jenny
Jenny is amazing, she just gets it. There seem to be no barriers or boundaries in the way she thinks which in turn helped me to look outside the box. Everything I invested in my coaching sessions was worth it.
Jenny helped me to be really honest about my thought processes, she helped me to order my challenges and worries into something sensible that I could prioritise. She gave me space to talk freely, to express my views openly, for me to ask her questions and to bounce some ideas off her. She helped me to develop my own plan and commitment to deliver the plan. I set personal goals and I committed to them.
Jenny's coaching helped me to become more confident and decisive. The support, and guidance, that Jenny provided have been invaluable and I would say that the investment was well worth it. She has a very good approach to discussing even difficult matters and managed to neutralise my perspective of the challenges that I was facing.
Corporate Training Testimonials
I just wanted to thank you again for coming in on Friday to speak to the Sprint participants
Steph and I also wanted to share with you what the students were saying about your talk after you left:
"Loved the tip about accepting yourself and not comparing yourself to others."
"Jenny was very open and it seemed like she was talking with you and not at you. She made us feel comfortable and I really appreciated the helpful conversations afterwards, particularly about building a support network."
"Jenny was an inspiration – very motivating."
"Really liked her talk."
Again, your time was most appreciated and everything you said resonated very strongly with the content of the programme. You had a great impact on the students and I hope to have the pleasure of seeing again at Westminster.
American Express invited Jenny to launch our Mentoring programme. Her name alone drew in the crowds to the event, with NO drop outs. The subsequent feedback from the event was phenomenally positive and we feel very fortunate to have met Jenny who could share her wealth of experience and knowledge with us. On a personal note, I wanted to say how inspiring I found her presentation and I have a copy of her book which I will enjoy reading!
Jenny delivered an interactive, informative and engaging session on "Being Heard at Work" for a joined Societe Generale and PWN (Professional Women's Network) London event. The session attracted about 80 people and both men and women in the audience felt that they had received practical take away tips.
Jenny facilitated a half day event and engaged everyone to work successfully as a team. Jenny's workshop was enjoyed by everyone and was positive and memorable for all staff involved. I would highly recommend Jenny, as well as an excellent facilitator it was lovely to work with her when planning the event and hope to hire Jenny again in the future
Happenista Coaching Testimonials
Good and practical tips to easily put into everyday life. For me it would be helpful to be able to download the resources on my mobile device. A great course, good value for money!
"Short chunks so I can fit it in to my busy schedule easily. Actionable and motivational. Really incredible support network with the secret Facebook group and extra webinars available from Jenny's website. Highly recommended."
Happenista Retreat Testimonials
The most significant thing for me is the fact that I’ve learned to identiify the things that are holding me back from getting to where I want to get to. I really should stop thinking about if only I had this, if only I had more money, if only I was prettier, if only I was taller. Stop doing the things I will not achieve, so you can move forward.
I can’t recommend it highly enough. Being here for the two days, I have come back energised and transformed. For me the difference has been that all those negative thoughts that I had, have somehow just disappeared and now I have a clear plan on what I need to do with the focus of looking after myself and also moving forward with my idea.
A massive thank you for the fantastic webinar last week. I was in Cambodia last week and caught up when I got back – it was such a great session. We are so grateful that you gave up your time to share your expertise with us.
We had over 100 mentees and mentors who registered and people attended the webinar from Croatia, South Africa, Columbia, Serbia and many other countries across the world.
You left us all with a lot to think about, and the feedback that we received from our mentees and mentors indicated the same:
• Niki, mentor from the UK: "Many thanks for the insightful presentation. I loved the example with the bus driver."
• Arinola, mentee from Nigeria: "Thank you very much Jennifer. Great webinar."
• Benedicta, mentee from Kenya: "WOW! Quite informative. I will stop interrupting and having ready answers"
I'd like to add our voices to the rest of the mentoring community in saying a big thank you from all of us for hosting this webinar – it was truly a pleasure. We couldn't do our work without great mentors and supporters like you, and really appreciate all you give to our work.
