“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.”

“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".”

“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!”

“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.”

“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! ”
Territory Manager, inVentiv Health Commercial & Straumann
“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 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
“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.”

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. ”
