Jen Briggs
Chief Bullsh*t Slayer, Strategist
My title says it all - I'm a Bullsh*t Slayer. I spent the first 15 years of my career in Marketing, first in Advertising and Channel Marketing and, eventually, building Brands and Growth Marketing Strategies for startups. 8 years ago, I made Seattle, WA. my home and since, have served as VP of Marketing for two high-growth tech startups, Trover (now Expedia) and Cheezburger. These days, I do Motivational Speaking, Coaching and Teach people how to create momentum in their lives and business.
Using strategy, tools, and frameworks and tracking our key performance indicators - that sound BORING but are actually FUN (Confidence! Badassery!) - I teach people how to use momentum to unlock their best self. As a result, they become better leaders, more clear, more effective, and more efficient in their work and play. They make more money, get more sh*t done, have more clarity, and experience growth in unexpected and awesome ways.
