Read what Jacqui's audience has to say about her below.
I am thrilled to write a recommendation for Jacqui Bryan, who provided our entire school district staff with three wonderful presentations regarding stress management. Jacqui is a dynamic presenter who combines humor, knowledge, and experience to provide a lasting recipe for personal health exploration and healthy living. After engaging in her interactive presentations, our staff described Jacqui as “a fantastic and down-to- earth speaker,” “a breath of fresh air,” and “a true bright light for us to follow.” Her personal story was touching, relatable, and inspirational. Our staff left the workshops ready to chart a course for a healthy and stress reduced future. I give Jacqui Bryan my highest recommendation, and I guarantee that her authentic approach will make a positive impact on any group who has the pleasure of hearing her speak.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if I can provide more information regarding our experience with Jacqui.
Jacqui is an exceptional communicator. She is able to convey ideas clearly, in simple language, with the examples and images that are perfectly suited to the task. Such communicators are compelling, convey a sense of authority, but remain approachable and congenial. They don’t say too much, nor too little either. They also leave all the room that’s appropriate for their listeners/collaborators to discuss, to question, and to contribute. Great communicators also have a kind of street smarts, an ability to judge the situation and respond to the unique demands that each new moment brings. Jacqui has these capabilities in spades.
Many professional educators can hone these qualities through practice, but some people have the extra edge of talent that the rest of us can only wish we had. Jacqui is that fortunate person who has both the talent and the practice. I don’t particularly think of her as a trainer, but as a person who is a very effective communicator. She’s effective one-on-one, in small groups, and in large groups. Her ability as an educator and coach is simply one manifestation of her ability as a communicator. Jacqui is very smart and very knowledgeable. She teaches and coaches with grace, smoothness and charisma. Because she has a special ability to get people to renew their hope and believe in new possibilities, she is one of the most effective educational leaders I’ve ever met. Jacqui never delivers a one-size-fits-all solution. She is curious. She asks thoughtful questions, listens to the answers, digs deep, and quickly synthesizes the data to help people change their thinking and change their behavior. I would be happy to answer any specific questions you have about my observation of her teaching/coaching (world class), stand-up platform skills (brilliant), or personal impact (significant)!
I recently attended the Prime Time Health Series with Jacqui Bryan and was amazed at the amount of insight and knowledge I came away with after the 4 sessions. Jacqui’s approach was straight forward – she explained the “what” to change, the “why” to change and the “how” to change. I am a lifelong fitness and health enthusiast. I thought I ate very clean but Jacqui provided me with a plethora of new information – based on science and fact - not some new fad. I’ve already made numerous changes to my diet – increasing my vegetable and fruit servings to 7-13, sipping more smoothies, adding new sources of Omega 3’s and antioxidants and including new spices to foods I prepare at home. The recommended mobile apps have proven to be a very useful tool in grocery stores and at home. In addition, Dr. Sears’ book, Prime Time Health, has also become a trusted resource. I believe that making even small changes recommended in the Prime Time Health Series will positively impact many and would highly encourage anyone, at any age, to attend the Prime Time Health Series.
On February 12, 2014, Jacqui came to Lifeshare to talk to my group about "Healthy Living". Jacqui was amazing! She had a table full of props and a organ t-shirt which one of my individuals modeled during part of her presentation. Through out her lesson plan she kept the whole group engaged in different activities and encouraged all to participate. Even those who have never participated in previous activities were raising their hands and wanting to volunteer to go up to her table. This was truly awesome for me to see! Thank you Jacqui, for sharing with us your knowledge of healthy living we are excited to have you back soon!
I recently attended Jacqui's Know Stress workshop. She is very knowledgeable about the effects of stress on all parts of your body. The talk was not a lot of medical ease, but at a level that we could all understand. She then moved on to a discussion on how to handle stress, via exercise, meditation, etc. I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation and I recommend the session to anyone that has stress in their lives.
A few months ago I took 4 classes from Jacqui Bryan on taking better control of ones health. My special focus was on reducing inflammation, but the course covered many topics. Jacqui is not only extremely well educated, but shares her personal history. I certainly learned specific ways to improve my diet and still refer to the materials I received in each class. I highly recommend her seminars and classes to people of all ages
Prime Time Health is an outstanding series! Highly recommend it to anyone seeking to learn how to live a healthier lifestyle no matter what your age. Packed full of beneficial fact based tips that will help your body to help itself to stay healthy.
I enrolled in Jacqui’s Prime Time Health Series three months before my 40th birthday and the timing could not have been better. Prime Time Health is a fantastic series of classes and Jacqui made it exciting and fun. She provides helpful suggestions that anyone can make to their diet or daily routine. Jacqui explains the harmful effects of a poor diet and lack of exercise in a way that is simple and easy to understand. Her classes help us understand what is happening inside our bodies and we learned that we can open our “internal pharmacy” by exercising and eating better. This information is so motivating! Jacqui provides participants with tools and tips to make healthy living easier. She offers wonderful suggestions on phone apps that make this journey effortless. This class is perfect for anyone interested in improving their health and making that 2nd half of life more enjoyable! I would highly recommend this class! Thank you!
I recently hired Jacqui to speak about behavioral changes around weight loss and living a healthy lifestyle to an event I hosted with clients and prospects and couldn’t have been more impressed! Using props and audience interaction she was engaging, energetic and funny leaving the group feeling like they could make the necessary changes to make a meaningful difference in their lives!
Jacqui is a phenomenal communicator. Her presentation style engages her audience and presents health-related practice and policy in ways that are easy to understand and motivate. I have invited Jacqui to speak in my speech communication class because her presentations are outstanding models for my students in speaking to and motivating individuals and groups. Jacqui is also one of the sweetest people you will ever meet and that comes across in everything she does.
I strongly recommend Jacqui to anyone looking to embrace a healthy lifestyle, dealing with a chronic situation such as diabetes, or recovering from a serious life situation such as cancer or cardiac surgery. Jacqui’s own life experiences make her the number one person to help with any of these situations.
Jacqui's Prime Time Health series was a huge hit at the Seacoast YMCA in Portsmouth. Jacqui brings so much to the table, she is professional, knowledgeable, and engaging. As the Fitness Director it is so important for us to provide the community with healthy living programs that are safe and based in science and Prime-Time Health fit the bill. The series can be taken all together or just one or two topics of interest, this flexibility was a good fit for our participants. No matter which class they attended each person left with the ability to make healthier living choices right away. Jacqui is non-judgmental and partners with you to develop the tools necessary to take the next step in your journey. I would recommend this program to everyone, regardless of age, health, or history. We all can benefit from this program! It is an honor to have Jacqui and this program as a resource for our members.
Nutrition and health can be a quagmire of information and misinformation. Jacqui Bryan has the ability to highlight the facts and clarify them so the average person can understand the importance of healthy living. Prime Time Wellness Workshops provide an interactive approach to understanding some basic principles. Jacqui has a vast knowledge and her personal style make the workshops very enjoyable.
Jacqui is a skilled clinician with extensive experience assisting people make positive health changes. She is caring, supportive and able to motivate while providing the tools needed to be successful through behavior modification. Patient's have raved about the results, not just weight loss, but an overall improvement in their well-being.
The Prime Time Health series helped me to sift through all the diet fads. Not only did it make sense, it is scientifically based and medically supported. Eating "clean and naked", "opening our internal pharmacy" through exercise and good diet, "individual retirement account for health", developing a moving plan, avoiding inflammation--the silent killer" are ways to build up our immune systems as we age. Easy to understand workshop books, a caring and skilled facilitator in Jacqui--highly recommend it for all ages. Changed my life! Will always be on the move...
Jacqui Bryan does a great job with humor conveying how we sabotage ourselves into thinking how just one bite or one more cookie won't really affect our weight. I knew way too many of those sabotaging thoughts but didn't realize how easily I used them. The Think Thin Workshop encourages participation among the attendees who support each other. So if you have a goal of getting a colorful ski suit in a smaller size or wearing a bikini again or looking great at your kid's wedding, and maybe your will power is not great, this think thin workshop is for you. My eating was pretty good, but I was not doing the exercise needed to lose weight. Now I am scheduling it on my calendar. Like many, I have lost weight before, but this time I intend to do the whole approach correctly!
I lost 40 pounds participating in the Weight Watchers program. I became a lifetime member. Great! Then in the next year, the weight started creeping back up. I finally realized that losing weight in the first place was the easier task. Keeping it off was really hard. I signed up for Jacqui’s 6 week course ‘Train Your Brain to Think Thin” to help me find a path to permanent weight loss and a healthy life style. Jacqui is a trained professional and a lot of fun. She presented a program incorporating cognitive behavioral therapy, which basically trains you how to change the way you think and the way you act, forever! The best part of the program was my one on one consultation with Jacqui. She gave me a personalized program to follow and provided the support I needed to move forward to create a healthier, more enjoyable life. Thank you Jacqui!
I participated in Jacqui’s 6-week course called “Train Your Brain to Think Thin” in Fall 2015. This series was truly a turning point in my process to become healthier for life. This is more than just a weight loss program. Jacqui helped me uncover the sabotaging thoughts that were de-trailing my weight loss journey and efforts to be healthier. I learned how to incorporate positive thinking and rewarding activities to get back on track. I’ve already lost 15 pounds and am on my way to making healthy changes that will stay with me forever. Thank you, Jacqui!
Jacqui did the most fantastic talk on Living An Anti-Inflammatory Life at our Duxbury, MA workshop. She was able to break down complicated medical information into easy to understand applications for the average person looking for answers. Jacqui keeps it simple. She is a nurse with a heart.
I just completed Jacqui's 6 week Think Thin class based on cognitive behavior therapy. The course builds upon skills that are presented daily, with repetition in creating new good habits. One learns to THINK about their eating so it will become natural with time. Jacqui guided us adding to the materials in the book. I liked her scientific based tidbits, as I am a medical researcher. Her teaching by example, encouragement and allowing for plenty of discussion among attendees added value to the class. Video's of the class were made available in case of absence. I used them to visually reinforce what I heard in the class. Mrs. Bryan experienced life as a patient years back, giving her a 'real' edge in being an understanding educator. Her genuine concern for her clients shine through.
Jacqui, I loved your Train Your Brain to Think Thin course. It hit me in ways that extended beyond weight loss! I eat under stress and berate myself in the process. Now I am learning healthy responses to those sabotaging thoughts that had once led me to eat. Thanks to you and your course, I'm getting better at planning my food, exercise, and events that in the past had been challenging.
It's hard not to have some stress in our modern lives. But being able to recognize it as a warning sign that signals us to slow down and make changes is often not so obvious. Jacqui's Know Stress workshop presentation taught me how stress can wreak havoc on the body if not addressed. Jacqui is a talented presenter who injects a lot of humor into the workshop while getting her point across and helping participants come up with a workable plan, even if it's just slow breathing or making a small change in the way to handle a stressful situation or trigger. I actually used the "four-second breathing square" recently while stuck in traffic on the way to the airport. I then thought, there's nothing I can do about it, so just enjoy the music in the car and I did calm down. I highly recommend this workshop to anyone wishing to improve the quality of their lives.
My sister Patty has been seeing Jacqui for 2 years and is always raving about her and trying to get me to come as well. Finally I attended her talk called "Chew on This" , July, 2017. Oh my what an experience! Jacqui is an expert on nutrition and whole body health. Her talk was easy to understand and most importantly gave us the tools to make life changes. She is extremely knowledgeable and her thirst for new and constantly changing new information impressed me . No question was too small or too complicated for her and her answers made it all seem simple and doable. I have been following her advice since then and look forward to seeing her again. You won't be disappointed in this beautiful lady
I recently met Jacqui at a presentation she did on inflammation in Duxbury, MA ...something I hear about often but never really understood. Now, spending an evening learning about inflammation is not very high on most people's bucket list, but then again most people haven't met Jacqui! She is so engaging, energetic, funny and thoughtful...who would have thought that one could laugh so much learning about inflammation? And learn I did...I thought that inflammation was solely nutrition based...learning that the other major triggers of stress, exercise and weight all play heavily with it as well. In Jacqui's Living An Anti-Inflammatory Life work shop, she gave great examples of how we can lower our stress to combat inflammation, as well as great tips to keep your body moving and great foods to incorporate into an already healthy diet. I would attend any workshop/seminar that Jacqui puts on in the future....she is smart, lively and entertaining!
Jacqui, your Chew On This workshop was great, informative, entertaining and motivating. As with all your presentations that I have experienced, you brought your knowledge, your experience and your generous spirit. Thank you for being such a “go-to” resource for every question about renewing, embracing and practicing a heathy mind &body lifestyle.
Jacqui presented her Know Stress Program at a lunch ‘n learn session as part of Cole Haan’s Health & Wellness Month in August 2016. Our employees enjoyed her energy-filled approach to handling stress. Her presentation was helpful in providing a more in-depth understanding and awareness of the causes and effects of stress. Our folks valued her practical ideas and techniques on approaching and reducing stress at work and at home.
Jacqui has the ability to present an enormous amount of complex information in a concise, relatable and humorous way. She integrates the latest in scientific and lifestyle data and helps her audience find ways to make achievable and meaningful life changes. (Living An Anti-Inflammatory Life workshop participant)
I was very fortunate to attend Jacqui’s workshop entitled “KnowStress” as part of our company hhc (human health care) activities. I was very impressed with Jacqui’s presentation. She is well informed and she touched on all aspects of stress giving real stories as examples. Jacqui shared with us some of the most intimate emotions during her fight with cancer and how she analyzed herself and identified stressors which she then found innovative solutions to eliminate. She presented us with the main stress culprits and clear solutions to fight them. I came out of the workshop feeling refreshed and with a new perspective on life. Jacqui is one of those rare individuals who are so determined, who can find strength within herself and overcome any obstacle. I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet her. She is amazing and I highly recommend her workshops to anyone who is in need of support.
My husband and I attended Jacqui's "Chew On This" presentation because of my interest in hearing what does go on in the gut. My spouse, when hearing what I wanted us to do together, issued a "guttural" response and somewhat reluctantly agreed to come. His initial concern was being the only male in attendance, however, his fear was quickly allayed when a few of the male persuasion walked in and found a seat. Gutting the issue drove Jacqui's informed delivery with precision, wit, and the human condition. One felt completely at home with her standing in front of the audience as though she were in your home, or you in hers. Her oral performance was accompanied by incredibly hilarious graphics-so much so that I found myself focusing on those little gremlins and losing sight of the big intestine!
A 75 minute tutorial traveling down the 30 foot rabbit hole to meet the bad and the beautiful was binge worthy and left me wanting to know and learn more with no squirming in my seat restless to leave. Thank you, Jacqui, for a moving moment!
