The Professional Behind the Shrimp

Hi there!  I’m Jennifer McGinnis – "Applied Comedy Lady," former contract negotiator, comedian, speaker, and coach & consultant.



  • Negotiated thousands of contracts.

  • Led teams of contract negotiators that averaged over 400 contracts a quarter taken from start to execution.

  • Streamlined processes to reduce time-to-execution by 70%.

  • Trained a wide variety of individuals and teams on a wide variety of topics, from negotiation skills to leadership development, career skills, public speaking, communication, stress reduction, applied improv, and more.

  • Helped hundreds of individuals advance their personal goals as a career and professional development coach.

  • Spoken at a variety of events, conferences, and symposia.


Through my combined expertise and experience in contract negotiation, 7 years as a national trainer for Powerscore, and over a decade as a comedian, I have a unique perspective on the art of communication and connection in business and life, and it is something I am committed to helping others with, as well.


So, how can I help you today?
