“Janine Hendry is a positive, genuine and dynamic force. Engaging Janine for our International Women’s Day event was a privilege. She works proactively, collaboratively and authentically. As a speaker, she seeks to first understand her audience and environment so can truly connect and present in a way that really aims to draw common ground, bringing people together rather than dividing them. The time Janine took to deeply chat with guests after our event really resonated with attendees and consolidated her impact. Janine is an inspiration – but above all, a good person.”
