“Your insight and encouragement in my role of MC for our annual conference was a big help to me. I had content that I felt confident enough to ad-lib to and I believe that it came across well…you do good work!”

“Janice has a knack for bringing out the best in speakers. She provides insightful and gentle critique, and helps her subjects make the most of their presentations. She's in your corner, giving you the guidance and direction you need without trying to shape or mould your flow. It was delightful moving through the process of creating my first TedX talk, for @TEDX KidsBC”
“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 worked with one of our speakers for the 2012 TEDMED conference held at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.

Her practical advice and tips for improvement were well received by all in attendance. She is sincere, a great listener and a natural teacher. I would highly recommend her!”

Senior System Analyst at Nav Canada
“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.”
