“We have worked with Jessica on a number of occasions to develop and execute event plans. She is extremely positive and open to any challenges that have been thrown at her, from short timelines to unexpected changes. She has developed events for as many as 300 people, right to the tactical planning of a parade float. Her thoughtfulness, detail focus and organization has ensured that our events have been successful and well-received. I highly recommend working with Jessica!”

“Having a safe, quiet and central venue for our intimate monthly meetings is the foundation of our organization. Without these spaces, the depth and quality of our meetings and connections suffer. Just the thought of having to deal with all of the details associated with event space was enough to overwhelm me. We were fortunate to have Jessica fit us into her schedule and have her take control of the research and decision-making when it came to securing a wonderful space for our meetings and events. Her expertise and incredible organizational skills immediately put us to ease – Jessica left no stone un-turned and produced amazing results very quickly. She took the time to understand exactly what we desired and was able to satisfy our needs while aligning with our values of quality presentation and trust. We are looking forward to collaborating with Jessica and Breakaway Strategies Inc. for future events.”

Founding Facilitator, Womentum


“Breakaway Strategies was a tremendous resource for my event. We hosted a number of international speakers over a 10-day Conference and all arrangements, logistics and details were considered and most importantly delivered. A year out from the event, and I am still receiving accolades for the efficiencies at our conference. Thanks Jessica!”
