“Jeanne Meserve has been a fantastic moderator for our Americans for Peace, Prosperity and Security (APPS) national security forums with 2016 presidential candidates.  Jeanne’s command of complex foreign policy and national security issues, as well as her skilled questioning, make her an ideal choice.  We are honored to have Jeanne lead such important discussions as these forums.”

– The Honorable Mike Rogers, Former Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Honorary Chairman of APPS

“She did an amazing job, was a wonderful speaker, and also made herself available to talk personally with our guests.  This level of professionalism mixed with an engaging personal demeanor is not common!  We definitely recommend her a speaker, moderator and/or emcee.”

-Aileen Moffatt, PhD, Vice President of Development, Reading is Fundamental

 

“From the very beginning of our engagement with Jeanne she listened to our program goals, offered creative insight and counsel on the flow and operation of the program and did all of the  preparation necessary to make sure she was fully informed for our keynote speakers and panelists.  The result was an absolutely stellar program.  Her professionalism, preparation, and personality brought our program to a whole new level of quality.”

-Rich Cooper, US Chamber of Commerce Foundation

 

“The World Health Organization launched its Global TB Report 2012 in Washington, D.C. and worked with Jeanne to develop a dynamic format for the press conference. Instead of having multiple presentations, Jeanne moderated a vibrant panel discussion on the new data among senior officials from the World Health Organization, U.S. Agency for International Development, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institutes of Health, and President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. She was at ease with the highly technical subject matter, and kept the session fluid and engaging. Her expert style and star power helped us ensure that the event was well-attended and favorably covered by top media. Feedback from our panelists and audience members was uniformly positive.”

-Philip Coticelli, The Coticelli Group

 

“Jeanne Meserve was an excellent anchor for our talk show on tuberculosis and HIV.  Jeanne brought in her great experience with making challenging topics clear and accessible to large audiences.  Also, she was able to bring into the conversation a variety of guests with very different backgrounds, while ensuring their contributions were balanced and fit cohesively with the narrative and format of the show.  We look forward to working with Jeanne again and having her as our media champion in the fight against tuberculosis.”

-Vittorio Cammarota, World Health Organization

 

“In the years following the attacks of September 11, Jeanne’s provocative and compelling news stories brought the audience into some of the country’s most important counterterrorism operation centers and alongside the men and women charged with protecting the homeland from al-Qaeda.  Her unique experience as a respected veteran journalist combined with her creative storytelling ability made her the perfect choice to lead a workshop with BAE Systems’ communications team on how to build successful relationships with reporters and pitch unique and interesting stories.  Using the moderating and interviewing skills she mastered in her career, Jeanne challenged our team to think more creatively when formulating story ideas and to prepare for difficult yet practical, questions.”

-Brian Roehrkasse, BAE Systems

 

“Jeanne Meserve was a brilliant and inquisitive moderator of the panel and live-stream we hosted with John Walsh of America’s Most Wanted and a team of bloggers.  We appreciate the journalistic integrity and wisdom she brings to the table.”

-Danica Kombol, Everywhere

 

“Jeanne Meserve’s dynamic and engaging presence as an expert moderator made a complicated 5-person panel with diverse international personalities flow efficiently and smoothly and made it fun for our audience to watch.  Jeanne’s expertise and experience ensured that our panelists brought forward their important ideas in a powerful and effective way.”

Peter Van Praagh, Halifax International Security Forum

 

“Through her decade of covering homeland security for CNN, Jeanne Meserve has set the gold standard for covering this critical issue.  She continues to influence the policy debate as, among other things, a probing and insightful moderator at key forums.”

-Clark Kent Ervin, Aspen Institute Homeland Security Forum

 

“I eagerly recommend Jeanne for any position that uses her extensive knowledge of crisis management.  In a world where every Congressional intern turns his or her memory of how Senator Sillypants lost his talking points into crisis management expertise, Jeanne is the real deal.  As someone who has watched hundreds of crises, horror stories, and tragedies unfold around the world, Jeanne knows what is worth knowing about how to plan for and respond to them.  Unlike the high dollar celebrities who run businesses based on what you know about them, Jeanne knows what people just like you need to be doing.”

-Donald Hamilton, former Deputy Director for Public Diplomacy, Office of the Ambassador at Large for Counterterrorism

 

“Jeanne Meserve’s presentation to our staff and clients on homeland security issues was terrific.  She discussed complex issues like cyber-security and bioterrorism with clarity and authority, and engaged the experts in her audience to push the discussion to a new level.”

-Danny Maiello, Fleishman-Hillard

 

“Having known Jeanne Meserve as both a journalist and now as a consultant, I have always admired her professionalism, fairness and unending curiosity for whatever issue.  During her years covering homeland security, Jeanne combined a grasp of the issues and how they intersect with both federal and state politics.  While I was disappointed to see her leave the reporting world, it has been great to work with her in a different capacity.  She brings the same skills and passion to the work she does for clients.  I look forward to continuing a working relationship.”

-Jodi Omear, National Governors Association
