This Changes Everything: UnScripted, the secret truth behind Uncertainty

How we handle uncertainty is key to not only unlocking creativity and innovation but also to our overall well-being. Based on the one-of-a-kind research study “Chaos2Clarity”, laugh while you learn and experience the secrets of those that are inspired by chaos and change, those that embrace the uncertainty of the situation, and accept the offer to create opportunity.

Learn why not everyone in a crisis is in crisis, and the implications for you, your team and your Company.

NOTE: All attendees will be given the opportunity to take the Chaos Response and UnScripted Assessment that will assess how well they handled the chaos of the pandemic and predict.


Being UnScripted allows us to go off the scripts of the past in order to not just adapt to change but to embrace uncertainty and take advantage of change. The UnScripted Mindset is based on the principles of improv and problem solving and participants will laugh as they learn and practice these skills.

Creative Problem Solving
Learn and practice a proven and reliable creative problem solving process that allows you to solve complex problems with innovative results. Participants will be facilitated to solve a real problem while learning the process, skills and tools.

“We partnered with Jennifer to be our keynote speaker for our Technology Transformation Event series – 11 events taking place across 7 cities in North America. Our goal was to engage the hearts and minds of our technology team, to help them understand their role and be prepared for our transformation journey.
As our keynote, Jennifer was outstanding in connecting with our employees and inspiring them to embrace change and be ready for the unexpected. She tailored her message to resonate with her audience and helped them connect the dots to see the path forward.

While some keynote speakers deliver their speech and go – that’s definitely not the way Jennifer rolls. She has been a valued member of our team from day one – playing an integral part in the planning and delivery of our event series. Jennifer provided great insights and feedback to help us elevate and continuously improve the event experience. She is a true partner and has been a kind and thoughtful mentor to me. As the person accountable to make this event series happen, with Jennifer’s support I could confidently say I got this!”
