Testimonials

“Jennie was MC for my book launch and I couldn’t have made a better choice. She led me through a friendly interview format in front of a large audience, and made it an engaging and relaxed experience for everyone involved. She was well-prepared and organised, and steered the event to make sure my book received the attention I required. Her interactions with the audience were the perfect blend of humorous and professional. Would hire her again!”

-Michelle Prak (aka Prakky), Author of ‘Goodbye Newsroom’, PR consultant & Communications teacher at UniSA

 

“Jennie has never spilt coffee over the panel in the studio in all the time I’ve known her. As well as her technical skills she’s also a terrific interviewer. She has interviewed me several times and it was always a great conversation. And she only spilt coffee on me once.”

-John Safran, ABC broadcaster, author, filmmaker, larrikin

 

“Jennie Lenman is an outstanding radio producer, she would have to be one of the best in the business right now. On a shoestring budget and with a changing team of volunteers, Jennie has managed, produced and presented a quality and engaging local breakfast radio program for several years. Along the way she’s successfully developed relationships and contacts, mentored young journalists, showcased diverse South Australian people, talent and ideas and managed to stay organised and approachable. I’d highly recommend Jennie for any radio role!”

-Lucy Kingston
Former Program Manager Radio Adelaide, former Multiplatform Producer ABC Radio National, Producer of Aboriginal Message radio show and Aboriginal Way newspaper

 

“Jennie is a skilled and highly professional broadcaster, who has been integral in recent years to making the Radio Adelaide breakfast program engaging and appealing radio. She has been a valuable mentor for students as both producer and show host – guiding and inspiring them to develop their radio skills and understanding to a high level. Being interviewed by her is also a positive experience – her style is relaxed and conversational but incisive.”

– Dr Kathryn Bowd, senior lecturer in media and journalism, University of Adelaide

 

“Jennie is a strong advocate for South Australian artists and communities and Nexus Multicultural Arts Centre (Nexus Arts). Jennie started as marketing and communications intern at Nexus Arts in 2012, and in 2017 was invited to join the Board based on her strong skills in communications and broadcasting. Her contributions to our strategic planning have been invaluable and her insight into the community broadcasting sector has assisted Nexus Arts to identify new opportunities to engage audiences and connect with communities.

Feedback from many artists who have been interviewed by Jennie over the years has been overwhelmingly positive and all comment on her gentle nature and her ability to make them feel at ease. Jennie would be a great asset to any organisation and I am proud to have her on my Board overseeing the future of our organisation.”

-Louise Dunn, General Manager of Nexus Arts

 

“During my time as Publicist at the Adelaide Festival Centre and now at the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra I have had the pleasure of being able to work with Jennie over the past 5 years.  Jennie has always been impeccably organised when it comes to setting up interviews, she thoughtfully researches those that she is interviewing and is articulate in both her questioning and dialogue with a multitude of artists I’ve had the joy of bringing in to her studio at Radio Adelaide. I wish Jennie all the best for whatever the future may hold, her exceptional communication and efficient time management will be a draw card for any future employee.”

– Cheree McEwin, Publicist
