"Jasmine delivered an effective presentation focused on how you can promote diversity in agriculture. She emphasized, "why all diversity matters." We need to recognize that great minds don't think alike and as a result, our world improves. Our team is more effective and creative as a result of working with Jasmine. She continues to support agricultural leadership and understands why the industry sustains all of us. Grateful to work with Jasmine, looking forward to "seize life" with her again in the future."
- Brad Schloesser, Past Director of MinnState Southern Agricultural Center of Excellence
"I am thrilled to recommend Jasmine Stringer to any company looking for a high-energy, memorable, and entertaining keynote for their meeting. In December 2021, Jasmine was the keynote speaker for the Land O’Lakes Women’s Leadership Network annual event. The event, attended by hundreds, took place with most attendees ultimately joining online. Her connection in the room was terrific, and the more difficult virtual connection was even deeper. Our attendees commented that they enjoyed hearing Jasmine’s story and the advice she gave for success – both practical and aspirational. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who wants a professional speaker with heart."
- K. Olson, Chief Communications Officer, Land O’Lakes, Inc.

As a result, members of our team felt understood and energized."
- M. Halley, Executive Director Cookie Cart
"Jasmine shared her keynote presentation, Power of the Ask, with our employees. Her motivating, encouraging, action-oriented message deeply resonated with our employees. Her presentation was filled with positive energy, real-world recommendations, and valuable insights for everyone, especially women. If you're looking for a virtual or in-person speaker to inspire your organization, look no further! Jasmine is a pleasure to work with, from initially reaching out to inquire about her availability through the wrap-up after the presentation, she was engaged and extremely professional. I can't wait to work with her again!"
- M. Darsow, Corporate Communications Manager, Radisson Hotel Group
"I highly recommend Jasmine as a keynote speaker! Jasmine spoke to our employees to kick off our annual mental wellbeing challenge called Path to Positivity. Since we are in the middle of a global pandemic, she gave her talk virtually. We were all so impressed by how she was still able to provide a motivating and energetic talk that urged us all to seize the day. We could feel her energy through the computer as she spoke with excitement and passion. Jasmine was a pleasure to work with in planning for the event and I highly recommend her for any speaking engagement. She will infuse your participants with positivity and motivation!"
- A. Friedman, Sr HR Wellness Representative, City of Minneapolis
"I had the pleasure of working with Jasmine when she led a thought-provoking panel during Black History month at Radisson Hotel Group. Jasmine continues to amaze me with her ability to inspire women and to raise awareness when it comes to racial equality in the workplace. I look forward to continuing my partnership with Jasmine and #sharethemicmn."
- S. Amsler, Manager, Radisson Hotel Group
"We were very fortunate to have Jasmine give her Seize Your Life talk at our hybrid conference for the MN Festivals and Events Association. Our attendees have been widely impacted by the pandemic and we needed someone to leave them with some motivation to keep going and think positive. She appeared virtually to those in the room and our attendees didn’t even notice. Jasmine nailed it with her presentation. She was the breath of fresh air that our industry needed to remind them to keep it simple, to put one foot in front of the other and keep moving. She reminded us to believe in our vision and to buy a tambourine! I hope to work with Jasmine in the future. She did not disappoint!"
- M. Gustafson, Director of Events & Programs, Minneapolis Downtown Council
"Jasmine Brett Stringer is one of those rare individuals who makes everyone around her feel like they’re the most important person she’s talked to all week. She is a great relationship-builder and networker, with connections all over the world. Jasmine’s “Carpe Diem” passion for life enabled her to embrace agriculture with open arms when love led her from city life to rural Minnesota. Her ability to share what she has learned on the farm, and to tell heartfelt stories that resonate with people outside the ag industry, can really help build bridges between farmers and the people they feed."
- K. Hayes Head of Advocacy, Bayer
"I was looking for career coaching. I received that and so much more from Jasmine. She helped me to see my gifts again. I was first drawn to her for her contagious energy. I always left a session energetic and ready to take on the world. She helped me take the final steps towards some things I had been putting off for months. I loved my time with Jasmine and highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a combination of career and lifestyle coaching."
- S. Piippo
"The Carpe Diem experience with Jasmine was a game-changer for my team and me. A different type of team building that encouraged collaboration and storytelling through vision boarding. We left the meeting understanding how knowing and sharing our top strengths can create a foundation for cohesiveness. Jasmine’s positivity and upbeat energy was an infectious and inspired conversation amongst a group that is driven and reserved. I highly recommend her talent. She will break the code toward penetrating barriers virtually that is fun and unique."
- F. Stanfield, Director Emory University
"The Women’s Foundation of Minnesota is grateful for the opportunity to partner with Jasmine Stringer and Share the Mic MN to amplify the voices of young women of color who are already making a difference in our community. Jasmine is a gift to our community. Her “lift as you climb” philosophy is apparent in her leadership and partnership. Jasmine and her team were wonderful partners and the joint #WFMNXSHARETHEMICMN: Taking Action for Equity campaign exceeded our expectations. The “Share the Mic MN” platform is an effective tool to harness our collective power to transform into a state that is stronger for all of us. We are grateful for Jasmine’s commitment to advancing gender and racial equity across our state."
- K. Stone, Vice President of Advancement and External Relations, Women’s Foundation of Minnesota

- M. Jones, President, Sysco Foods
"During the COVID-19 pandemic and the rise of a national conversation about racial justice, Jasmine was invited to speak (virtually!) to everyone in my company about how we can move forward...together. I was fortunate to introduce her and to moderate the Q&A after her talk. This was a tough topic--in divisive times--and Jasmine rose to the occasion with grace and guidance. She brought much-needed wisdom, candor and vulnerability to a diverse group of hundreds of people who were struggling in different ways."
- A. Worley, Chief Connections Officer, VMLY&R
"Jasmine's energy around being who you are and building her own unique brand of leadership inspired the students and helped them realize their own power to build the career of their dreams. Her talk was essentially a mini-keynote. The heart, smarts, and spark was a generous gift to our next generation. Thank you, Jasmine!"

- T. Evans, Chief Advancement Officer, Wayside Recovery
"With grace, insight and approachability, Jasmine shared her Carpe Diem message to 45+ incoming college students.
