About Our Presenter:  Jennifer Yaros

Jennifer Yaros is the Chief Creativity Officer and Founder of BrainSpark, and Vice President of Operations at Radcom. Jennifer is passionate about helping people tap into their own personal creativity and using it to solve business problems. She is the creator of the BrainSpark program and author of Conditioning Your Mind to Fuel Creativity. In her role as VP of Operations for Radcom, Jennifer learned the value of developing creative solutions to meet clients needs and budgets. While helping clients document procedures and work instructions, Jennifer discovered a need for creative thinking and innovative solutions to everyday business problems in all areas of companies. She noticed that companies often implemented solutions to problems that did not solve the real problem. Jennifer decided to use her knowledge and experience in creative thinking and putting ideas to work to help companies solve their problems for good. This was the inspiration for BrainSpark to help companies develop and use their innate creative thinking to discover innovative solutions to problems. Jennifer has been delivering training programs, creative thinking workshops, and process improvement plans for mid-size and Fortune 500 companies for over two decades. She also frequently speaks at industry events across the nation.
