The fundamental pieces of Speak So They Listen started with Jeneen’s Mother and Mentor, Shirley Jallad, in 1964. Her passion for teaching started early. As she witnessed the excitement in others as they learned life changing skills, her career path took her into global corporate training and speaking. Shirley is responsible for creating and delivering many of the programs you experience today.

As a liberal arts college that prides themselves on growing generations of leaders with high character, it is not surprising that they share a common purpose for their work.
