Our guest speaker will be Jennifer Grigg, with a special presentation:

“Body Language for Fire Service Personnel: Helping You Help Others.”

Jen has over 25 years in the fire service, most recently as an Instructor at the Ontario Fire College. Wanting to make an impact in a different way, she left the college in December and embarked on a 5 month journey in training and coaching. She began studying body language training in an effort to ex- pand on what she’d stumbled upon in her role at the college. As an introvert and recovering awkward person, she’d discovered that a slight shift in her stance increased her feelings of confidence and com- petence, traits vitally important in fostering credibility among the fire service members taking her courses.

Now that she’s completed her training and is certified by the Science of People, a human behavior re- search lab in Portland, Oregon, she’s on a mission to share what she’s learned
