Ms. Jeanne Frew's experience is broad from highly technical to senior leadership and professional development. The emphasis throughout has been leadership and change management. The audience has been both public and private sector with the largest time spent working with and for the federal government. She is experienced with government processes and systems, and she has helped government organizations successfully use these systems rather than be stymied by them. She has focused on professional and leadership development and has used formal and informal education, coaching and mentorship, and leadership by example.

Ms. Frew led a military organization as the senior civilian (Technical Director). She provided leadership, change management, strategic thinking, policy development, long-range planning in all aspects of the business, human capital management, and fiscal oversight. In this position, she implemented strategic direction and demonstrated world-class leadership in a rapidly changing unpredictable environment. In her role as a facilitator, she knew how to challenge individuals, as well as groups, and knew how to get them motivated to work together, stay focused and get results. Ms. Frew has been successful in getting organizations to achieve organizational alignment and transformational leadership.

Her fervor for organizational development led her to design 'Expanding Boundaries', a five-day program she teaches to address the cultural needs of an organization during times of radical and continuing change. By educating a cross-section of its members, from the ground-up to the senior executives, she has proven herself by cultivating learning and the sharing of ideas at all levels in organizations. Ms. Frew’s program has provided participants a better understanding of themselves, each other, and the organization. The successes are seen when organizations end up with an understanding of the challenges they face along with developing a clear vision for the future.

Ms. Frew's expertise spans a culmination of transformational organizational development, communications, management, systems engineering and software development. While her passion and experience embrace leading organizational change.
