“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 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.”

“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!”

“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!
Managing Director, International Education, Burnaby School District
“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
“You helped me so much, Janice! You would have been proud. People were coming up to me saying they felt my message and they thought I was so brave. The way I spoke and took pauses was very effective! I felt proud. You are a great teacher and coach!!! ”
