“After being the Head of Learning and Leadership at Twitter and working at several high-growth start-ups, I decided to pursue my passion and build my own programs on women’s leadership and mindfulness for working parents. I had the privilege of being a client of Jill’s and learning from her first hand. I’ve since landed several high profile corporate speaking engagements and my business continues to grow. What a gift Jill’s work is to the TED community and speakers everywhere! She’s a practical, insightful, brilliant coach and I wholeheartedly recommend her. I have referred several clients to her. Consider yourself lucky to work with her!”

Jill was instrumental in every step of crafting my TEDx San Francisco talk: from finding the big idea I wanted to convey, to making a sharp script, to delivering a compelling narrative with passion to grab the audience.
When we worked together, she heard what I really wanted to say and helped me make the point across better –even if she wasn't the expert in my field! Her contributions were key to make my talk speak to a larger audience. Without her, I would not have walked into the stage with such confidence and a strong story to tell.

I knew Jill was THE person who could help me craft a compelling keynote that would help me reach newer and bigger audiences. Her experience as a speaker and coach were invaluable as she guided me to create a TEDx style talk that would leave audiences thinking and wanting to take action.
What I love the most about working with Jill is her ability to pick up on things you might be overlooking. Jill is a brilliant mind. She's creative, insightful, strategic and understands what works (and what doesn't work) in the speaking world. I highly recommend her work.

I had my first-hand experience of learning from Jill. What a great experience it was. Jill is brilliant and fun and she helped me create key messaging and structure for my speaking gigs. Absolutely recommend Jill's training to any keynote or Tedx speaker who wants to learn structure that will give them freedom to be effective and natural.

Jill is an experienced speaker coach who has worked with leaders and experts for many years. Speaker coaching is an essential part of a successful TEDx event. We have some of the top minds in the world at TEDxSanFrancisco and they need to work with a coach with deep experience whom they trust. We’re very happy with the work she’s done with our speakers and we will continue to work with her in the future.
Jill is one of my favorite people to work with because she brings energy, passion, and humor to every project. She blends subject matter expertise and people skills critical for her role as consultant, coach, and trainer. She delivers outstanding content and charms her audiences. Clients always ask for more Jill because she teaches practical skills while being engaging and entertaining. I trust her to delight clients and exceed expectations. I've worked with Jill since 2005, and I grab every opportunity to work with her because she’s that good!

When Jill Wesley walks in my office, it is as if the fog clears and the sun comes out! With grace, power and ease, as a strategic adviser and presentation coach, Jill has helped me work through so many hard questions, each with it's corresponding impacts, while keeping it light and fun. A great gift to any leader, and to any company.
Over my 25+ year career in senior marketing positions for several major brands, I have done countless presentations. Preparing for a talk that is not business related and very personal to me proved to be a whole new challenge. Jill’s expertise, coaching and support in guiding me through this has been an amazing and life changing experience. In the process of learning how to develop a compelling talk and create an emotional connection with my audience, I also learned so much about myself that will not only make me a better speaker but a better leader as well. I can’t recommend working with Jill highly enough. Thank you Jill!

I have had the honor to work with Jill Wesley in preparation for my talk at TEDxSanFrancisco 2018. Jill leads her coaching with warmth, authenticity, and precision. She challenges me to not only give a talk, but also dive deep down into the personal narrative that helps me grow as a speaker, and as an individual.
Jill taught me to speak with intention and speak with my heart— where I can confidently stand on the stage and share my story with the audience. I am wholeheartedly grateful for the opportunity to work with Jill, and I will indeed champion her and the impact she creates for all future speakers and audiences.
Jill has been an amazing mentor and advocate to support my passion as a hearing health advocate. She's thoughtful, strategic, and your success is her main priority. I can't say enough wonderful things about her as a mentor and friend.

Science + Soul of Speaking was founded with a rebellious spirit and a lofty objective: To engage excellence while leading the way for socially conscious businesses. Everyone deserves to be heard and too few people have dominated the narratives that create change in the culture, in our workplaces, or in our relationships with one another.
I work with people who understand that; where life and business can move out of the complex and into life change. I work with people who lead by bringing people together; who know talent is everywhere and opportunity isn’t; who know they’re part of something bigger than their bank account.
I specifically work with accomplished professionals who are already doing incredible work and now need to speak about it on bigger stages.
If this is who you you are and where you want to be, then I invite you to book a call to figure out if we’re a fit.
