Feedback
Jordana's piece, Social Needia, is an extremely entertaining performance, specifically geared to students about the ever-growing desperation to stay connected, all the while disengaging from real life. Not only were the students entertained, they had been given food for thought concerning the level of their own social media activity, and ideas and suggestions about how they may 'reconnect' with real life. As a teacher, I too found Social Needia thoroughly entertaining and helpful in providing me with a deeper insight into the 'pathology' and language of a world so very different from the one in which I grew up.

Jordana was awesome. She really did her research, hit the brief spot on and took day 2 of our conference to the next level. Her attention to detail was amazing, she engaged with numerous people in CUA to get the stories, information and lingo to make it feel like she was part of our team. Jordana is a very funny lady, had the audience laughing and achieved everything we expected plus more. I would highly recommend Jordana for her passion, attention to detail and most of all her great sense of humour.

The Business Centre, Pilbarra

From the very first briefing call Jordana has been an absolute pleasure to deal with. In fact, like no other. She really engaged and learned about our group which was evident on the day. Her energy is a breath of fresh air, although her request for me to capture a photo proved difficult. She doesn’t stand still long enough! Getting down amongst the audience is something that particularly works well to keep the group engaged. She was wonderful and I’ll be thinking of ways to have her back in the future, even if on a smaller workshop level.

Jordana facilitated a one day ‘pitching/presenting’ workshop for the best of our best, during a multiple day training program. Her unique style kept everyone fully engaged through the entire day, which was incredible as there were people from all over the Asia-Pacific-Japan Region. She got everyone so enthusiastic about what they were learning, that the Japanese speakers attempted to present back in English! Jordana took a group of very competent communicators and made them much better. I will definitely be asking her to help us again and I can highly recommend her as a highly skilled trainer and communicator, and a pleasure to work with.
