Our programming is based on methodology built over the last 5 years by our founder, Jennifer Iannolo, as she has traveled the world working with audiences of women and men from various industries. Here’s what some of them had to say.
My first venture-backed startup failed when I was in my early twenties, and I was at what is most likely the lowest point in my life. It was during that time that one of my mentors referred me to Jennifer, who helped me work through everything that went wrong, and provide support and guidance as I've gone on to build two profitable companies, and co-found a third startup, Medinas. With Medinas, we've now won the $500K Forbes 30 Under 30 Change the World Competition and the WeWork Creator Awards $1M Global Finals. When I look to strong women who can help guide me as I grow in my career, Jennifer is at the top of the list.

I recently attended an “Inspire Nepal” conference in Kathmandu and Jennifer was the keynote speaker. What a perfect choice! She did exactly what the organizers hoped — she not only inspired Nepal, but also touched everyone in attendance with her powerful message of empowerment and personal responsibility. Jennifer was witty, incisive and eloquently powerful in her delivery, as well as in her vision. And, although the women in attendance might have thought her message particularly tailored to them, all of us, no matter our gender, came away with a renewed sense of self and of purpose. Jennifer understands that the best speakers engage not just our minds but our emotions. She did both with the touch of a master and left us all wanting more!

Jennifer is a catalyst of change for the greater good. Our USNC-UN Women's Young Professionals Committee has her wisdom and guidance to thank for evolving us from a group of 3 to a committed and active group of 30+ young professionals. As the Young Professionals Co-Chair, I cannot thank Jennifer enough for the impact she has made on our team!

I had the opportunity to hear you speak at the Women in Business Conference at Purdue University. Something you said during your presentation has stuck with me since then: ``No one is coming.`` Thank you for introducing this phrase to me because it's a daily reminder to me to get things done and go after what I desire. You were truly inspirational.
