Speaking + Facilitation

Let’s Work Together

As an award-winning C-Suite Executive with 20 years experience leading organizations, in both corporate and nonprofit, I help support organizations to advance their vision and deepen their impact. I facilitate impactful workshops to advance both personal and professional development for employees at some of the biggest companies in Canada.


Gordon Food Service was thrilled to bring Jen Murtagh back for a second year as the closing keynote for our North American Women’s Leadership Conference. The previous year, Jen was one of our highest-rated speakers receiving overwhelmingly positive reviews from conference attendees. Jen is a relatable, authentic, and powerful speaker who combines her experience with important insights and actionable takeaways for conference participants. We received fantastic feedback on Jen’s talk, ‘Leaning into Bravery: How we rise as women and lift others along the way,’ from our more than 800 conference attendees, and would recommend her without hesitation as a speaker.

Jen delivered an incredible workshop at RBC in partnership with the BC Women’s Employee Resource Group for International Women’s Week. Jen’s interactive workshop on “Learning how to Quiet the Inner Critic” was engaging, insightful and inspiring! Jen’s style is very relatable and genuine, and she provided excellent tools, strategies and takeaways for all attendees. We received wonderful feedback from the session from those who attended and would welcome Jen as a speaker and presenter in the future. I would highly recommend her as a seasoned and professional workshop facilitator.

I hired Jen to facilitate a 2-hour values and goal setting workshop for my team of 40 leaders at ARITZIA in January 2021. The structure, engagement, and energy she brought to the workshop were exceptional. We had overwhelmingly positive feedback and many members of the team remarked they wished it were even longer.

Virtual facilitation through zoom can be a challenge and Jen’s ability to not only hold the attention of a large team, but to also project her genuine warmth, humour and connectedness through video was inspiring. The content was insightful, on point and provided the opportunity for the team to dive deeper into their values, capabilities and vision for the year ahead.

I would recommend Jen as a workshop facilitator without question and look forward to the opportunity of working with her again.
