“Janice is one of the most valuable people I have ever met. She is not only a customer-service oriented and honest team player but also an inspiring strategist. Smart co-worker. Experienced developer. Her experience and expertise and dedication makes her view solutions instead of problems. I can highly recommend working with Janice.”
Manager, Drake International
“Janice provides tactics that can be applied with ease while still explaining the 'why' behind her teachings. I'd recommend a workshop with Janice with no hesitations. Her workshop is best suited for someone who needs help organizing their thoughts, ideas, and stories into practical presentations -- especially those who have tight deadlines in creating content!”
HR Manager at CounterPath
“Last year my dream of becoming a professional educator was coming true, although the one thing that was holding me back was my fear of public speaking! My first presentation was 90 minutes long in front of 250 people! Janice is a gifted individual who is patient, understanding and extremely knowledgeable in the area of communication. I give presentations on almost a daily basis now without any issues.
Thank you Janice—you empowered, encouraged and motivated me to be the confident speaker I always wanted to be! ”

“Janice worked with one of our speakers for the 2012 TEDMED conference held at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. The speaker reported that he enjoyed the experience and that he appreciated Janice’s input very much. From my perspective, the speaker’s presentation clearly benefited from Janice’s expertise and assistance. The speaker’s somewhat shy, diffident delivery became more conversational and lively. His tendency to sink into a low monotone at times was replaced by a better modulated, more mellifluous tone of voice. His use of effective gestures and comfort in moving on the stage also increased...”

“Janice...has brought us to a new level in terms of confidence, connections and sense of possibility. We credit her insight and vision in helping us bring our message to the bigger stage, as well as bringing media interest and exposure. We wish her every success and look forward to working with her again.”

“Janice has the rare gift of being able to extract key messages from a complicated outline, to create a presentation that is clear, concise and meaningful. She is able to do this while still making the presenter feel confident and comfortable. It was a thrill to have the opportunity to work with Janice. She brought so much clarity to the process and I cannot thank her enough.”
Director, BC & Yukon CDN Youth Business Foundation
“Janice is tenacious, determined and very focused. She has a strong sense of fair play and ethics, and a clear understanding of the need for client orientation. Janice has good judgement, pays attention to detail and takes assignments through to completion.”
Independent Business Advisor, Switzerland
“I reached out to Janice Tomich when preparing for a presentation to senior management. I did not have any previous presentation experience and needed help. Janice’s coaching style was great and provided me with the tools I needed to improve my presentation. The positive feedback I received on the day of the presentation, from both my colleagues and VP, was a reflection of the skills Janice helped me develop. Thanks Janice!”
H, S & E Manager, American Transportation Company
“Janice was brought on to work with a diverse group of practitioners in preparation for a large conference we were hosting. Janice was able to work with each presenter individually, and in pairs, assessing their strengths and weaknesses. Janice’s commitment to the quality of our event was clear from day one; she was actively invested in the development of each presenter.”

“I sought out Janice to help overcome my anxiety around public speaking and fine tune my writing skills. I had a deadline to speak to a crowd of over 500 people and I wanted to convey to the crowd my sincere gratitude in a meaningful and professional manner. I learned much more than then I initially thought I would.
Janice has the ability and the tools to cut away at the deeper levels to help find where the anxiety exists and why. Janice got me centered through varying techniques such as belly breathing, voice projection and rooting myself in the moment. Janice has an incredible ability to read people. At the initial meeting to review my first draft, she could tell I had a lot of outside help and was to call me out. Janice and I rewrote a genuine, concise and organic speech that truly was mine.
My journey with Janice is an ongoing one and her guidance is immensely helpful for public speaking and my board work. I very much look forward to working with her on future projects. ”
