“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. 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 have a feeling that my work with you, when I look back at it in a few years, will be pivotal in my trajectory. That rainy morning, sitting at your glass table when I connected with not having to be perfect. That and everything that followed will be pivotal. Thank you for providing me with the space to go there.
I have also come to understand that I have to keep doing this. I have to keep speaking, putting myself out there and growing. I thought to myself after the presentation: "Ok, when is the next one? When do I do this again?" You certainly would not have heard me say that 6 months ago!
Janice, I cannot thank you enough. I will keep all your pearls of wisdom close to my heart and keep working on all those things you allowed me to see. You are amazing at what you do. ”

“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!”

“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!”
H, S & E Manager, American Transportation Company
“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”
“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.”
“Thank you again for your coaching… It went a long way in helping me better connect with the audience.
