(Event Organizer)

We had the honor of having Jennifer McGinnis present at the Association of Women Attorney's Women in Law and Leadership Conference this past fall. Her presentation on Career Development was nothing short of magic. By combining humor, examples, and an informal but highly focused presentation, she demonstrated her expertise in the field and gave her audience very useful takeaways. It is no small feat to keep an audience engaged and alert during the lunch hour but Ms. McGinnis managed to make her presentation informative and interactive. Ms. McGinnis gave the audience clear tips and most importantly, actionable suggestions on how to further their careers. I can confidently say that it was the best presentation we had at the conference.
