Jennifer Gervès-Keen, MA, MCEC Named in 2018 and again in 2019 by CEO Today Magazine as one of the top 100 outstanding consultancy experts across the globe, Jennifer Gervès-Keen is a Master Corporate Executive Coach, a designation reserved for coaches operating at mastery levels within organizational environments. After 12 years working in France to hone her communication and business skills in both languages, Jennifer moved back to Canada in 2005.

Through the creation of her business JGK Consulting in 2008, Jennifer’s goal was – and remains – raising the bar in executive development to develop better leaders in order to create and sustain great business. In order to create organizational learning experiences that actually had impact and greater skills retention, Jennifer started exploring neuroscience and its connection to leadership behaviour in 2013, and has since made it a foundational pillar of the company’s program content and design.

She became a Certified Mentor Coach in 2016 to expand services for clients who wished to become better leaders through learning how to be coaches. Jennifer strongly believes that making a positive impact on organizations through good leadership is one way of successfully navigating the constant challenges people face in today’s society.
