Testimonials for Jordana Borensztajn
Very well prepared, prepared brief and achieved agreed outcomes. Engaging and flexible with crowd participation. Presented well and extremely professional.
Committee for Portland
Jordana was a keynote speaker at our Summit 2019. She is a highly engaging and entertaining presenter and her energy is extraordinary! She delivered an outstanding presentation that combined humour and great practical content about building a social media strategy and presence, specific to our industry. Jordana was a dream to work with. From the very outset, we were impressed with her professionalism and easy going nature.
Real Estate Institute of Queensland
Jordana was the perfect choice to MC and host the Pyrios Grand Luncheon event and fundraiser in support of Plan International Australia. Jordana expertly tied in the themes of the AFL Grand Final in Melbourne and the ICT sector, making up most of the attendee audience, delivering relatable humour that tapped into social psyche and fabulous banter. She’s authentic and draws on her own experience but importantly researched and prepared for the event to ensure she delivered our key messages, and invested significant attention to the feelings and emotion we wanted to achieve with people in the room. In this regard, she’s sensational. Our event also had a heavy theme, Ending Forced and Early Child Marriage – tough gig for a comedic personality to weave in, however she met this challenge and brought a lightness to the room ensuring everyone was connected and the event remained uplifting… No easy task! Her professionalism meant she could engage, set an atmosphere, build rapport with the crowd, have us laughing and keep us all to run sheet time! We’re thrilled to have worked with her for our event and would highly recommend booking her for any function, we have no hesitation in saying she will thoughtfully prepare and absolutely deliver an entertaining experience for all” !

Beyond Excellent – She was just so great. Our Guests feedback was brilliant, they all thought she did a brilliant job.
From the very first briefing call Jordana has been an absolute pleasure to deal with. In fact, like no other. She really engaged and learned about our group which was evident on the day. Her energy is a breath of fresh air, although her request for me to capture a photo proved difficult. She doesn’t stand still long enough! Getting down amongst the audience is something that particularly works well to keep the group engaged. She was wonderful and I’ll be thinking of ways to have her back in the future, even if on a smaller workshop level.

Jordana was a brilliant keynote speaker choice for our WYNnovation Summit. I knew this from the moment we engaged her. She was enthusiastic about the event, eager to learn everything she could about our purpose, vision and audience, and really embraced the opportunity. Jordana presented confidently and in a way that was interesting, keeping the audience’s attention throughout. Jordana was also incredibly generous with her time, staying for the duration of the event chatting to delegates throughout the breaks and answering any questions they had. Taking it upon herself to do some research before the day enabled Jordana to feature businesses that were in the room in her presentation, providing a personalised experience and REAL examples to cement her key messages. As an event organiser it’s a relief when you engage an enthusiastic, well-prepared and organised speaker and that’s exactly what Jordana is, highly recommended!

We were fortunate enough to have Jordana present at the AGPAL and QIP 2018 Conference; delegates hung off her every word while she educated the audience on how to engage and lead Millennials. My only regret was not engaging her as a Plenary Speaker!

Confident, clever, thought-provoking, poignant, lots of laughs.
Warmth, charm, confident, polished, funny, professional, well-paced, delivered with heart, thrums with individuality.
Jordana presented ‘Social Needia – for Schools’ to our students in Years 10, 11 and 12. Her brand of humour, storytelling and important messages, delivered in the students’ own language and with clear resonances with their own experiences, was very successful. Students reported that they enjoyed the session, and would be reflecting on the key ideas. Thank you Jordana!
Mount Scopus Memorial College
When it comes to the egotistical world of social media, no-one can turn the comedic blowtorch on our conceits and vanities like Jordana Borensztajn. Her one-woman show Social Needia was ‘a laugh a minute’. Full of self-deprecating, acerbic one-liners, the audience couldn’t help but be swept along by Jordana’s impeccable timing and razor sharp observations that are not only true, but very, very funny. Highly recommended.
Rising star… Ridiculously good.
Dave Hughes, Nova 100’s Hughesy & Kate
Her tone is spot-on and self-deprecating in all the right places... Lots of laughs… One to watch.
Jordana's like a bolt of electricity. She's enthusiastic and her material has real substance. She has the ability to communicate to people that understand social, as well as those that don't. Even my Mum would understand the jokes."Plus it was really diverse. It wasn't just about social media; it was about life - and the fundamental shift we've made over the last five years. "She actually made me cry tears of laughter. It had been a long time since I'd had one of those laugh-cries. #winning
Thinktank Social, on Social Needia: The Epidemic during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2013
Jordana is an exciting, relevant and dynamic performer. Her skill and knowledge of all things social media provides some essential learning for any audience wanting to connect digitally... AND... she's funny!
Humour Australia (HA!), on Social Needia: The Epidemic during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2013
Witty, highly entertaining, completely relatable, irrefutably honest, up-to-the-minute comedy.
Jordana has captured the silliness of the social media obsession with hilarious insights. With style and a clever script, she uses a multimedia approach to highlight some of the bizarre things we do with Facebook and our mobile phones. It’s a whole new way of communicating - without having to speak or look at who we’re talking to. She bases her clever observations on herself, so if you are embarrassed, it’s because she opens your eyes to yourself. Wonderful.
