About Jenny Tipping
With 13 years of experience of being a rare female in the transport industry, both as a truck driver and as an instructor, I am committed to making the world a more diverse place.
Through sharing the work of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) as a writer, trainer and coach, I now support people to be the change they want to see in their workplace.
NVC is a simple yet powerful process for connecting with the self to create the capacity to connect with others with empathy.
I spent much of my 20s at university and when that came to an end, I trained as truck driver to give me space and time to think. I was hooked! After a few years of driving I wanted to connect with and help other women in my position. I started to get involved with Women in Logistics and spent a couple of years speaking about my experiences of being one of a small handful of women doing my job at conferences for the main industry trade bodies.
This culminated in my being featured on the BBC World Service, travelling to Canada to speak at the Canadian Trucking Association’s Women With Drive conference, and appearing on an expert panel for the Transport Parliamentary Select Committee.
I have been interested in personal development since my early 20s and in 2015 I discovered Nonviolent Communication (NVC). I instantly loved the combination of a specific focus on the skills of communication while always keeping an eye on the big picture of how much happier and more peaceful the world could be if everyone learned to speak from the heart and listen to the heart of the other.
I have been a Quaker since 2013 and my work training in NVC is both a profession and an expression of my faith.
I run courses for individuals both in person and online to create spaces where people can find their voice and through that their true authenticity and power.
