Jenifer Fox is an international, award-winning author and speaker and a recognized leader of the Strengths Movement within our educational system, for parents and organizations that serve youth.
She draws on 25 years experience in virtually every kind of precollegiate school setting to challenge the current educational system. Her message is focused on the need to develop children's strengths in an effort to help them find success and build meaningful futures. Jenifer sees this as not only a means to help the individual, but as an important step to secure our democracy.
In her critically acclaimed book, Your Child's Strengths, Discover Them, Develop Them, Use Them, with a foreword by Marcus Buckingham, Fox gives practical advice to parents and teachers. She lays out a plan for parents, schools and businesses (the endusers of our educational system) to join together to transform our communities into learning environments where all children are focused on discovering their strengths and ultimately finding success.
Widely recognized as the foremost expert on strengths development in educational settings, Fox is a visionary, a storyteller and a giver of practical advice.
In addition to speaking to parents and teachers about children, Jenifer is an innovative CEO with an expertise in turnaround leadership. This expertise allows her to speak with authority on social entrepreneurship, nonprofit leadership, strategic philanthropy and the impact educational trends will have on our society.
In addition to her many speaking engagements, Jenifer Fox has made dozens of live and taped appearances on television. She has been interviewed on radio and pod-casts, and featured in magazines and newspapers.
Fox holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and two Masters Degrees: an MA from Middlebury Collegeâ€™s Bread Loaf School of English and an M.Ed. from Harvard University. Contact Jenifer for speaking events@Jeniferfox08@gmail.com
