“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. ”

“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.”

Meeting you, sent me on a quest to learn to speak better.
I was back in Kenya in February to speak, then in Zambia in April.
I am now working on a series of eight messages to be given in Nigeria in August.
Our “chance” meeting and casual conversation in Nairobi was a turning point for me.
Thought you might like to know of your impact. ”

“I worked with Janice over eight sessions in 2016 with a view to improving the effectiveness of my public speaking and reducing anxiety around presentations. While I had a long history of making public presentations, I felt there was considerable room for improvement, particularly in the area of speaking without a script or text. Janice used a unique approach to tackle my personal issues around public performance, and her system has enabled me to reduce my presentation time, speak with greater confidence and, most importantly, conduct presentations without notes. It was a very interesting and valuable journey.”

“I reached out to Janice as I was looking for one-on-one coaching to strengthen my public speaking skills as well as coaching to enhance my executive presence in the workplace. I interviewed a number of other coaches during my search and I was immediately impressed by Janice’s professionalism and clear interest to understand and customize her coaching to fit her clients. Previous to Janice, I had not had any personal coaching and was apprehensive that the coaching would be a formulaic process that she applied to each client. However, I found that Janice spent the time to get to know me, understand my career goals and was able to adapt and customize our coaching sessions to maximize the benefit to me. I felt she genuinely cared about my success and was flexible with my busy work schedule. I found her style encouraging and considerate, but also thought provoking and inspiring. Janice not only helped me gain confidence and build a succinct and persuasive message through my presentations, but she also helped me bring awareness to my diction and the subtle yet powerful influence it has on my everyday language. I am very happy to have found Janice and would recommend her to anyone looking for similar coaching.”

“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!”
