Our Clients Say it Best
I recently listened to Jeanne speak at the Bismarck Mandan Board of Realtors luncheon and was super impressed. Her words of wisdom have popped into my head on several occasions since then. I have found myself thinking about posture, the Super Woman pose and consciously being present. Thank you, Jeanne, for a great presentation! I've been going to these events for 20+ years and Jeanne is one of the best speakers we've had!
Jeanne’s presentation for NDSU’s Business Connections program was inspiring. Business Connections in the College of Business unites students with business leaders for a voluntary mentoring experience. Participants appreciated Jeanne’s practical ideas for fostering professional growth and reaching beyond their comfort zones. They left excited to incorporate the 10 mentoring experiences into their partnership. Jeanne’s insights, energy, and dedication to mentoring were uplifting.
Jeanne was a recent speaker at a Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber Women Connect event. She spoke about mentorship to a diverse audience and shared an actionable take-away and challenged us to see where we can maximize potential though mentorship relationships (either as a mentor or mentee). Jeanne is prepared, polished, and professional. We couldn’t have asked for any better partnership to meet the goals of this group.
I have had the pleasure of knowing and working on a professional level with Jeanne Masseth for many years. Jeanne is one of the most intelligent, respected and thorough professionals in her field. Her attention to detail and her deliberate, but relaxed and friendly style of presentation make her an outstanding facilitator. She is uniquely qualified in the area of human resources, especially mentorship. I encourage any organization seeking a talent development consultant to work with Jeanne and watch their leadership and teams soar to the next level!
