Select Testimonials

It was a pure pleasure having Jess Ekstrom come and speak at Zappos. Not only did she inspire our employees and leave them feeling empowered to take on any challenge, but she was 100% real and candid about her own journey. Jess went the extra mile to tailor the message to our group and stayed longer to answer audience questions and sign books. We would highly suggest working with Jess and her team for corporate or community events.
