Jen spoke out about discrimination and sexual harassment she experienced. But her personal story about how she got her start in stand up comedy is equally fascinating.

Jen Grant is a force of nature! She came highly recommended to me by a friend who had seen her speak and I am so happy she spoke at our conference of School Board Employees. Jen is clever and very funny! Her witty wisdom is grounded in solid practical advice on how to change your life in a positive, effective way. She seamlessly weaved in and out of making us laugh hysterically and sending a powerful message of the importance of less stress in our lives. This in turn gives us more happiness, better health, and increased success. We were extremely pleased with her presentation and humorous style and we would welcome her back anytime.

Jennifer Grant was a fabulous addition to our Corporate Client event hosted in conjunction with the Global Business Travel Association Canada Conference. “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Conference” was the theme of our event. Jennifer was a true blast… as the finale act, she provided real-life reasons for us to laugh our faces off… her humour was appropriate for the audience … it was personal and it was hilarious! Jen was the perfect way to conclude our evening and kept us all laughing into the conference the following day!

After 9 webinars with serious topics with a group of front line nurses during a global pandemic, your presentation could not have come at a more suited time! We all needed your refreshing perspective and a chance to "find the funny" in all that we are facing right now. Thank you so much for being part of the Regional Nursing Workshop and making us laugh - my face hurt by the end of it! I look forward to working with you again in the future and I hope that you will continue to do your presentation virtually as it was a complete success!
