“What I took away from Jumpstart2019 were strategies, knowledge from experts, and friendships that immediately made a difference in my presentations and my approach to business. One of the topics discussed at Jumpstart most certainly aided me as a speaker during an emergency situation at a recent presentation. I highly recommend Vanessa Emerson and JUMPSTART to anyone who wants to grow both personally and professionally and connect with a tribe of growth minded and inclusive professionals.” -Susan Cotten RDH, BSDH, OMT
“What a fabulous, wonderful, educational, relationship building experience you provided each of us at Jumpstart 2019. Thank you for asking me to attend and giving me the nudge I needed to do it. I am better for it, I am a renewed person because of it, my burnout is gone, I am taking one step forward each day and looking forward to having a great year. WOW I had the best time at Jumpstart.” - Cindy Ishimoto
“What a magnificent conference! JUMPSTART was everything and more than what was promised or expected. Every day was jam-packed with wonderful content – instructional, innovative and inspiring. No one wanted to leave. Thank you and congratulations on JUMPSTART2019!” - Casey Hein, BSDH, RDH, MBA

“JUMPSTART launched my career. Without a doubt, anyone who is ready to receive the tools needed to grow must be at this conference.”
“Vanessa and her team have outdone themselves! After experiencing the most incredible career launch from JumpStart2018, I simply couldn’t imagine a more comprehensive workshop, but somehow, they did it! JumpStart2019 brought opportunity to workshop my courses into meaningful content, brush shoulders with top meeting planners in our industry and network with sponsors.
After JumpStart2019, my career has continued to soar beyond my wildest dreams! My phone is ringing, I’m booking speaking engagements and I’ve forged strategic partnerships with top sponsors. More than that, I have curated a business model that not only serves the dental community but is also fueled by my passions and talents.
To say that this three-day course has connected me deeply to my ‘WHY’ would be an understatement. This event truly embodies Vanessa’s core values of connection, support and purpose, and it threads these common values into every gorgeous minute of the conference. I am forever changed.”
- Katrina M. Sanders RDH, BSDH, M.Ed, RF
“The ROI is immeasurable.”
- Rick Garofolo
“When I was asked to cover this meeting for a colleague, I did so with a bit of trepidation. The mere thought of having to stand up and speak to a room full of “professional” speakers was, at the least, quite intimidating and filled me with a sense of dread and anxiety. I pictured them all sitting there with their arms crossed, judging me for every little nuance of my talk. I could not have been more wrong… Vanessa and her team were warm and welcoming. Not only did they embrace me with open arms, they also gave me great feedback and encouragement.
As a sponsoring partner, I was invited to attend and participate in all of the workshops. Not only did this give me a fantastic opportunity to work on my own skills as a dental professional and trainer, but it gave me a chance to network and meet with the future leaders in this community as well as some of the most highly regarded and most well respected veterans.
I wholeheartedly recommend the Dental Speaker Institute/JUMPSTART to anyone looking to improve their communication and storytelling skills.”
- Michael S. Clark

“Jumpstart was the best decision I made for my business - and I am not just saying that. Not only was I able to learn from some of the most brilliant minds in our industry, but I also was able to network and attract clients! The unique factor about Jumpstart is that there are no "cliques" and this allows the attendees to interact with the speakers, meeting planners and thought leaders in a comfortable and an organic way. The attendees also have the opportunity to share their services and what they want to improve on. I ran out of my business cards on day 2 and months later, I am still signing up clients from Jumpstart! If you are speaker, this is a MUST conference for you. As a bonus, you also learn exact strategies and receive tools/resources to become a phenomenal speaker!” - Minal Sampat, BA, RDH
