Jeanne Benedict | Speaker
Jeanne Benedict is all about sharing ideas that help people make the most out of their time. Her entertaining, decorating, holiday, and lifestyle tips for “saving time and money without sacrificing an ounce of style” have made her a favorite female speaker with many audiences.
Benedict’s custom speaking / demo presentations and creative workshops have been the #1 choice for clients looking to:
- Liven up an audience of professional women who may need a break from a week of work-related workshops.
- Inspire a creative crowd at food, home & garden, and gift shows, or women’s expos.
- Give spouses of mates at corporate events an entertaining and informative program (and a little break from the business-talk).
- Incorporate merchandise into demos at in-store appearances to help customers see the versatility and value of products.
- Provide solutions to company team members by sharing innovative cross-merchandising and display ideas for holiday, seasonal, and everyday products.
“People come up to me after speaking / demo presentations delighted and energized that their company gave them a speaker who shared ideas for their life outside of the office. They know that an enhanced and happy home life will lead to a productive & happy work life. ” – Jeanne Benedict

NATIONAL ASSISTANCE LEAGUE
“I have heard nothing but glowing reports from the women who attended your Friday workshop. They all enjoyed it so much and liked the idea of something different on Friday afternoon. We do know that there were still a few who left for the afternoon to go shopping, and a lot of them were told what they missed out by not being there to hear you. I enjoyed meeting you so much and since I have always been an artsy crafter, I got a lot of new ideas myself. Our Assistance League 2008 Education Conference will be held at the Century Plaza in Los Angeles again in October and I would like our committee to consider having you again as a speaker.” – Barb Nielsen Conference Administration Committee National Assistance League
