“I was thrilled earlier this year to be asked to address an audience of nearly 2,000 incoming university students. The speaking format was something totally new to me, and because I wanted to 'knock it out of the park' I contacted Janice. My previous training in public speaking was always done through in-person day-long workshops. Because Janice and I were in different cities, we worked together online. At first, I wasn't sure of how well an online interaction would work -- but Janice was exceptionally organized and fully present, and as a result, her online support far exceeded any training I'd previously received. The best part of working with Janice was that she was honest, encouraging and always constructive. She continued to push me to improve specific parts of my speech and its delivery both through on-the-spot feedback and reference to examples of speakers that shared my similar goals, and to speaking exercises -- until I was sure that I was going to give the audience my very best. I would work with Janice again in a heartbeat, and strongly encourage anyone who is tasked with an important speaking opportunity to reach out to her, too. ”

“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 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. ”

“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. ”

“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”
“Thank you again for your coaching… It went a long way in helping me better connect with the audience.

“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 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!”
CFO, Mining & Manufacturing
“I sought out Janice to help overcome my anxiety around public speaking and fine tune my writing skills. I had a deadline to speak to a crowd of over 500 people and I wanted to convey to the crowd my sincere gratitude in a meaningful and professional manner. I learned much more than then I initially thought I would.
Janice has the ability and the tools to cut away at the deeper levels to help find where the anxiety exists and why. Janice got me centered through varying techniques such as belly breathing, voice projection and rooting myself in the moment. Janice has an incredible ability to read people. At the initial meeting to review my first draft, she could tell I had a lot of outside help and was to call me out. Janice and I rewrote a genuine, concise and organic speech that truly was mine.
My journey with Janice is an ongoing one and her guidance is immensely helpful for public speaking and my board work. I very much look forward to working with her on future projects. ”
Portfolio Manager, Blanca Realty Limited
“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.”
