“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.”

“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! ”

“In searching for an executive communication coach and public speaking coach, I came across Janice who fit the bill perfectly as she offered both coaching services. We worked on refining my communication skills by drafting, reviewing and re-writing emails as well as role-playing. She really helped shift my approach and mentality when it comes to having difficult conversations with team members as well as offering ideas and feedback to senior leaders. As for public speaking, I was preparing for four presentations and although already comfortable with speaking in front of an audience, I was looking to hone my skills. We worked through all of the presentations together and I felt confident and prepared as I delivered them. My sessions with Janice were productive, educational and enjoyable and I wouldn't hesitate to work with her in the future.”
