Testimonials

We had the pleasure of hosting Jennifer at an “Unplugged Session” that our organization sponsored for our employees. The engagement across the team in response to her book “The Introverted Leader” was amazing! Jennifer has a unique way of connecting with people and promotes an open level of discussion. This approach led to strong, open dialogue across our organization during her session. I believe that this topic will now be more broadly discussed among our employees which is important as we continue to scale our business. Thank you Jennifer for being a strong “introvert” advocate!

I truly enjoyed your class and it has had a significant impact on me, both professionally and personally. An introvert my whole life, I have often felt like I’ve had to conform to an extroverted business (and social) world. You and your class have provided validation that introverts can be strong leaders and have given me permission, so to speak, to focus on and cultivate my introverted leadership style, rather than conforming to the traditionally extroverted “norm.” And for that, I cannot thank you enough.

Diversity and inclusion is a high priority for our organization. Since many scientists tend to be introverts, we wanted to increase awareness that they can be impactful leaders without changing who they are. That’s why, as co-chairs of Merck’s Global Chemistry Summit, we invited Jennifer Kahnweiler to speak. Jennifer showed us how introverts and extroverts can work better together to increase productivity and innovation. She conducted interviews with select, diverse participants in advance to understand our culture and customize her program. It was great that we started the meeting with her keynote since people were talking about the concepts in small groups throughout the two-day event.  Following her session, we are better equipped to attract and retain the best people for the job.

Jennifer is an absolute pleasure to work with. She was the keynote for our 2018 annual conference. She kept a room of 140+ IT people engaged and actively participating for over 45 minutes helping them understand the power of introverts and extroverts and how leveraging each others strengths make powerful teams. I would highly recommend Jennifer to speak at your event. She was very easy to work with and took active measures to ensure she was prepared for the type of audience she was speaking to.

Dr. Kahnweiler presented an insightful, eye-opening message to the UWG community at our recent BB&T Lecture in Free Enterprise. Her message to introverts will help students and alumni identify and build on their natural strengths, and her message to extroverts about how to encourage and include ideas from the entire team will build better businesses and better communities!

I had the pleasure of working with Jennifer Kahnweiler at a PMI Atlanta event where she was the keynote speaker. She was on point from the time of booking to the end of the event. It was obvious that Jennifer cares about her audience as she took great care to understand them and relate to them. That she is an accomplished author on the topic of understanding introvert and extrovert personality traits, reconfirms her commitment and passion. Her recommendations for project managers were well received by our PMI group. I am honored to recommend Ms. Kahnweiler as a leader, motivator and speaker.

I had the pleasure of working with Jennifer recently. I am on the board of our local SHRM chapter and I brought Jennifer in to be our keynote speaker and do an afternoon workshop. She is a gem! She is passionate about her topic, truly got to know the audience and kept them engaged the whole time. She was a true professional and a joy to work with. I am thrilled our paths crossed and am so happy to be connected! I’m already looking for opportunities to work with her again.

Our March 2019 Columbus Ohio HRACO luncheon was where I had the chance to meet Jennifer and hear her speak. I was blown away by her ability to communicate with the audience and her poise and personality that electrified the overall presentation, “The Introverted Leader”. Throughout her speech she engaged with all levels of Extroverts, Introverts, and everyone in between with integrity and whole hearted dedication to the cause: learn about and embrace the inner you, then do the same for those around you. What a gift! I feel truly blessed to come across this amazing lady and will certainly stay in touch and look for more of Jennifer.
