I’m on a mission to help you have become a confident public speaker. Weekly to bi-monthly (or there about), I send curated thoughts, techniques, and stories. Find out what I’m sharing.
“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
“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 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
“Hiring Janice was one of the best steps I've taken in my career as a public speaker and business owner. She was instrumental in helping me prepare for the Clio Cloud 9 conference, which was a big deal as Gary Vaynerchuk was the keynote speaker. For me, I have deep-rooted issues with public speaking and confidence. Janice recognized this and helped me deliver the best presentation of my career. ”

“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.”

“I never felt like I had public speaking in me. When I met Janice, I was afraid of revealing that side to someone else, but she put me at ease right away. Her sessions are part therapy, part coaching. Now I look back at my old videos and see a noticeable difference in my confidence. Janice made me aware of subconscious speaking habits that were impacting my first impression on clients, like diminishing my own achievements or punctuating my sentences with apologies. Today, I go into calls feeling confident, assertive, and ready to show up as an expert. If you're looking to get your ego stroked, Janice probably isn't a good fit for you. But if you're willing to dig deep into what's working and what's not working in your speaking style, the results you can achieve are incredible. I've used her frameworks to close three deals that added up to over $30,000 in projects.”
Founder, The Scribesmith
“By attending one of Janice's workshops and reading her newsletter, I have learned new skills and ideas that have greatly improved my abilities in speaking and teaching workshops. Janice can help you learn how to truly engage your audience, not just present to them.”
CEO, Mediate BC
“For anybody who has read an article or correspondence from a senior colleague or business leader and said to themselves, “I wish I could communicate like that, but it’s just not in my DNA”, my response would be, "Yes it is. Go see Janice".”
Director of Procurement
“I have been delivering presentations for years but rather than looking forward to the experience, I would be anxious for days or weeks before. I no longer am with the support of Janice. In a few sessions, she changed my perception towards presenting. In addition to her communication expertise, she can get right to the root of your presentation challenges. We also worked on messaging, breath work and relaxation techniques. She is the most encouraging and thoughtful communication coach. Thank you Janice!
Managing Director, International Education, Burnaby School District
“I reached out to Janice as I was struggling with some upcoming presentations I was doing for senior executives. While I had been doing presentations for years, I wanted to make these presentations stand out and had less than three weeks to prepare.
Janice was a pleasure to work with. She was readily available with her time, flexible and adapted her approach to my needs. She provided me with assignments after each meeting so that I could bring my presentation - both the content and presentation of it - to the next level. Her approach balanced being supportive and encouraging all while pushing me to get to the next level.
Given I was working with a short timeline, it was a lot of work and big time commitment on my part. The results were worth the effort. I was impressed with how great an impact Janice was able to have within a short time. I was blown away with the feedback I received from the executives following my presentations. I will continue to work with Janice in the future.”
