From the very first briefing call Jordana has been an absolute pleasure to deal with. In fact, like no other. She really engaged and learned about our group which was evident on the day. Her energy is a breath of fresh air, although her request for me to capture a photo proved difficult. She doesn’t stand still long enough! Getting down amongst the audience is something that particularly works well to keep the group engaged. She was wonderful and I’ll be thinking of ways to have her back in the future, even if on a smaller workshop level.

Jordana was a brilliant keynote speaker choice for our WYNnovation Summit. I knew this from the moment we engaged her. She was enthusiastic about the event, eager to learn everything she could about our purpose, vision and audience, and really embraced the opportunity. Jordana presented confidently and in a way that was interesting, keeping the audience’s attention throughout. Jordana was also incredibly generous with her time, staying for the duration of the event chatting to delegates throughout the breaks and answering any questions they had. Taking it upon herself to do some research before the day enabled Jordana to feature businesses that were in the room in her presentation, providing a personalised experience and REAL examples to cement her key messages. As an event organiser it’s a relief when you engage an enthusiastic, well-prepared and organised speaker and that’s exactly what Jordana is, highly recommended!

Jordana was a pleasure to work with. She was super organised and did a lot of pre-work to ensure everything ran smoothly on the day. She was an engaging and entertaining MC and able to adapt on the day as plans changed.
Jordana delivered an inspiring presentation to a very broad travel industry audience at our annual conference. Through her energy on stage, combined with her sense of humour, the session was very engaging. Feedback from our delegates was extremely positive. They felt they were walking away with new gained knowledge and motivation to start working on their social media strategy straight away. Thanks Jordana.
Marketing Manager, Australasia, Cruise Lines International Association
Once again Jordana more than exceeded our expectations! Her workshop “Elevate Your Influence” was funny, engaging and educational and we received overwhelmingly positive feedback. Our After 5 event was a massive success, making it the best one yet. We also received a lot of positive comments, including “I wasn’t going to come but I am so glad that I did!”.

Conference Manager, The Marketing Conference, Brisbane
If you’re looking for a dynamic speaker with energy and pizzazz, Jordana Borensztajn is your lady! We were fortunate enough to have Jordana present at the AGPAL and QIP 2018 Conference; delegates hung off her every word while she educated the audience on how to engage and lead Millennials. My only regret was not engaging her as a Plenary Speaker!
General Manager - Marketing and Communications, AGPAL & QIP
Jordana’s presentation was inspiring and motivating. She captured her audience through energetic discussions, fun activities and witty anecdotes. Every member of the team took something valuable away. Jordana was a pleasure to work with from start to finish.
Training Development Manager, Customised Training
Jordana’s high energy and fun workshop was not only a practical way to help increase the confidence of team members who are required to present to groups both large and small, it was also a great team building activity. The combination of tips borne of experience and the chance to practice what we were learning meant that the 4 hours just flew. And even the most nervous of participants enjoyed their chance to have one of the sparkly microphones in their hand!
CEO, Ardoch Youth Foundation
Jordana’s amazing enthusiasm and energy throughout the day really allowed our team to leave our comfort zone and explore our real potential. Our entire sales team benefited from the workshop and had an absolute blast while doing so.
Jordana was amazing. She really put thought into tailoring the presentation for our specific audience and consulted us along the way. The presentation itself was active, engaging, funny and informative. I would highly recommend her.

Thank you for your presentation. Your energy, information and fun made for an excellent end to three days of conferencing and networking. We loved your presentation.
Confident, clever, thought-provoking, poignant, lots of laughs.
Warmth, charm, confident, polished, funny, professional, well-paced, delivered with heart, thrums with individuality.
Jordana presented ‘Social Needia – for Schools’ to our students in Years 10, 11 and 12. Her brand of humour, storytelling and important messages, delivered in the students’ own language and with clear resonances with their own experiences, was very successful. Students reported that they enjoyed the session, and would be reflecting on the key ideas. Thank you Jordana!
Mount Scopus Memorial College
When it comes to the egotistical world of social media, no-one can turn the comedic blowtorch on our conceits and vanities like Jordana Borensztajn. Her one-woman show Social Needia was ‘a laugh a minute’. Full of self-deprecating, acerbic one-liners, the audience couldn’t help but be swept along by Jordana’s impeccable timing and razor sharp observations that are not only true, but very, very funny. Highly recommended.
Rising star… Ridiculously good.
Nova 100’s Hughesy & Kate
Her tone is spot-on and self-deprecating in all the right places... Lots of laughs… One to watch.
Jordana's like a bolt of electricity. She's enthusiastic and her material has real substance. She has the ability to communicate to people that understand social, as well as those that don't. Even my Mum would understand the jokes."Plus it was really diverse. It wasn't just about social media; it was about life - and the fundamental shift we've made over the last five years. "She actually made me cry tears of laughter. It had been a long time since I'd had one of those laugh-cries. #winning
Thinktank Social, on Social Needia: The Epidemic during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2013
Jordana is an exciting, relevant and dynamic performer. Her skill and knowledge of all things social media provides some essential learning for any audience wanting to connect digitally... AND... she's funny!
Humour Australia (HA!), on Social Needia: The Epidemic during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2013
Witty, highly entertaining, completely relatable, irrefutably honest, up-to-the-minute comedy.
Jordana has captured the silliness of the social media obsession with hilarious insights. With style and a clever script, she uses a multimedia approach to highlight some of the bizarre things we do with Facebook and our mobile phones. It’s a whole new way of communicating - without having to speak or look at who we’re talking to. She bases her clever observations on herself, so if you are embarrassed, it’s because she opens your eyes to yourself. Wonderful.
