For the 17th episode of StartWell’s Gathering Podcast we sit down with Toronto-based public speaking and communications expert, Jordyn Benattar.
Jordyn’s working history began at age 3 when she was cast in television commercials and then feature films as a child actor. Her ease with cast and crew working on camera prepared her for a career in public speaking and communications coaching.
Trained as a lawyer with an MBA, Jordyn worked at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP in New York and later at Goodmans LLP in Toronto. People around Jordyn kept recommending her skills in persuasion, influence and speaking to resolve communications challenges and help others own the room. This quickly turned into her coaching company Speakwell, which trains and empowers people to become world-class communicators. Jordyn works with organizations and individuals to improve their ability to effectively articulate their thoughts, ideas and value.
