“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...”

“I attended one of Janice's "Women's Presentation Workshops" and was most impressed. She organized a great event, in a forum that was engaging and encouraging. 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!”

“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 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.”

“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
“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
“I liked Janice’s approach of offering a workshop to an intimate group of women. By attending her workshop I learned how to prepare a presentation and the importance of using the three-theme rule. I gained confidence in learning the skills of how to position my body, breathing, and voice projection. I would recommend Janice’s workshops to middle to senior managers.”
Mustel Group, Vancouver, BC
“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.”

“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. ”
