I have had the pleasure of connecting with Jann on many community-supporting initiatives. Most recently, we had Jann speak at the Iowa Downtown Conference to an audience of community organizers from across the state. From discussions about taking care of our career (and life) well-being to leaving a breadcrumb legacy in small ways throughout our lives, Jann’s message rang true …
Jann was easy to communicate with, flexible, and professional. Jann delivered a keynote speach as well as a working session on developing your leadership legacy. The participants of the forum found Jann to be thorough, engaging and an expert at the topic of developing a leadership legacy.

This work is truly inspirational.
Dr. Jann Freed has spoken to our emerging leaders several times, and on each occasion, she brings wisdom, insight, new perspective, and enthusiasm to the concept of leadership.

Jann’s humorous yet profound stories established her as a lifelong learner, teacher, seeker and mentor. She repeatedly credited others for their roles in her journey, especially in writing her several books. The employees’ …
Jann is friendly, approachable, extremely knowledgeable, and best of all quite likeable. I would, without hesitation, and with enthusiasm attend one of her presentations. She continues to inspire me!
Dr. Freed provided our keynote address as well as a break-out session…she provided an informative and relatable presentation.
Jann is an excellent speaker and opened the floor to related questions, providing in-depth answers to all. Many attendees complimented Jann on her presentation and knowledge on the subject matter.
