What People Are Saying
In 2017 the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce contracted with J Prater Consulting to conduct a needs analysis and initial business case for a new program that would benefit our members. Jessica Prater was a delight to work with. She was detailed, thorough, and kept us on track with her timeline. We were also pleased with her research and information gathering skills as well as her presentation of findings. I would highly recommend working with Jessica Prater and her team. While the results of the final recommendations led us in a different direction, we were very pleased with the process and it was well worth the financial investment.

In Her Own Words:
My work is built on the concept that everyone brings their own talents and motivation to work. A business will succeed only if it builds the skill set of the individuals who carry out the goals of the organization daily. I hold a Master of Psychology from Middle Tennessee State University with an emphasis in Industrial and Organizational Psychology. My academic experience is paired with a strong corporate background, which translates into a firm research base that is made practical and understandable for a wide range of audiences. Participants in my classes have ranged from corporate executives to entry-level employees in manufacturing facilities and curriculum is built to translate well across groups.
With each project, I bring a fresh perspective and enthusiasm for learning. I hope to be of service for you and your team for all of your talent development needs.
