“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.”

“Janice Tomich coached me twice in preparation for a keynote speech. I hired her to help me fine-tune my opening and closing remarks, I was so happy with the first session I hired her to help me with my introductory bio and transitions in my talk. The sessions were short and conveniently over the phone. She was very effective and focused and exceeded my expectations. ”
“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!”

“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!”

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. ”

“Sadly, Zito has passed away. He was a lovely, kind man who was dedicated to helping others. His thoughtful testimonial means a lot and I'll remember Zito with a soft spot in my heart: I did exactly as you told me, (stick to key messages, not too much rambling information, make it personal, slow down, give them time to digest, etc.) and it worked. Afterwards, our CEO couldn’t say enough good things to everyone about my presentation, and how proud she was to see how far I had come in such a short period of time.

“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.”

“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! ”

“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!

“I worked with Janice over a six month period to help me overcome presentation anxiety. In our first meeting she said that she would get me to the point I would actually feel excited to present. I didn’t believe her, but after her coaching, practice, and repetition I delivered a presentation to an audience of two-hundred people that I actually enjoyed giving, and received rave reviews from the audience! Janice did exactly what she said. Thank you so much.
