from our partners

“Jennifer is a visionary, and the definition of pure energy, creativity, and results. I’m proud to be part of the network she’s established through The Sway Effect. As a former client of Jennifer’s when she was leading a major agency’s worldwide communications strategies, I know the value she brings to the table. She sets the bar high—and then pushes beyond that with everything she does.”

Anne Madison
Founder, 357 Communications

“Having worked with Jennifer in the past, I was excited to be a part of her new endeavor. Not only is she super smart and effective, but also one of the most connected people I know.”

Mitch Markson
Creator & Ground Control, Markson IdeaCraft

“The people that we work with expect high quality, big results. To be able to bring somebody in with the caliber of Jennifer and her team and not have the baggage that comes with hiring large agency players is very unique.”

Bonin Bough
Founder and Chief Growth Officer, Bonin Ventures

“As the social purpose landscape continues to expand, having the right team to support a full buildout of our expertise in social impact engagement has been critical. The beauty of The Sway Effect and Jennifer’s leadership is that we can bring the best thinking and strategy to the table when it comes to a fully integrated communications buildout of an authentic and engaging purpose strategy for clients.”

Phil McCarty
Founder, Good Scout

“Not only is it an amazing opportunity to work with incredible people in this industry like Jennifer, but it’s also important to show that agencies don’t have to look like what they used to. And quite frankly, in our changing world, they can’t.”

Lily Herman
Founder, Rogue Sunday

“What is so great about The Sway Effect is that there’s such a diverse group of thinkers and thought leaders across multiple disciplines. When a group has this collaboration within itself, the opportunity for clients to tap into that collaboration and bring their unique perspective to is incredible.”
