Jess brought a level professionalism, energy and technical proficiency that was the envy of other AFL clubs. She was described by players that had been to other clubs as far and away the best dietician that they had had the pleasure of working with. Whether it was presenting to the whole group, 1 on 1 tuition with players or taking the draftees for cooking lessons she delivered the material in a manner that made it easy to understand for all levels of the playing group. She would make any organisation that works with her, better.

The nutrition program that Jess Spendlove delivered to the Cronulla Sharks NRL team was of the highest standard I have seen in my time in professional sport. Whilst based on sound nutritional principles and delivered in manner that was both engaging and easy for athletes to understand, Jess always found a way to appeal every individual within a very diverse playing group. Of particular note, was her innovative way of dealing with the nutritional needs of injured athletes.

Jess spoke with our Physiotherapy team at our annual conference - presenting on fuelling for performance (in work and everyday life). Jess has a very appealing presentation style in that she breaks down often confusing topics and explains them in a simplified manner - whilst still providing a factual and research driven discussion. Jess is highly professional whilst being adaptable and able to relate and connect with a varied audience. The presentation (as I hoped) became very interactive with lots of great discussion - that which has continued ever since! Jess presented information that was useful for our team on an individual level along with being applicable to our clientelle - further enhancing our service offering. I know I personally have already adopted a few tips and tricks Jess suggested and am excited to share these with our community - so simple yet so effective.
