Working with Janice made me realize how much difference good public speaking makes! Before giving a plenary talk at a major academic conference in my field, I was quite nervous. I don't really have much experience in public speaking. Deciding to reach out to Janice was a bingo! In the short time that we worked together, Janice shared her views on my talk and provided excellent tips that changed my perspective on presenting. Moreover, talking to Janice gave me lots of assurance and probably the biggest takeaway for me was learning how to make my talk more personal through storytelling, with as many examples as possible. All this through these first few meetings! During the plenary, I felt much less nervous during my talk than I would feel normally. In fact, I felt completely relaxed (to my surprise). As a result, I received excellent feedback from hundreds of colleagues. If you're looking to be a better communicator and to connect with people, Janice is the one to reach out to! For me personally, public speaking will never be the same again. Thanks so much, Janice!

Working with Janice was such a pleasure! I had a very short amount of time to prepare for a keynote speech (a little over a week). I approached Janice for help with getting organised. I had a sense of what I wanted to present but Janice truly assisted me in getting my thoughts organised and asked all the right questions around the kind of message I wanted to deliver to my audience. She was so easy to work with, flexible with meeting times and collaborative. I am so grateful I found Janice as my keynote would not have been as impactful if I had not worked with her. I would 100% work with Janice again on future presentations and speeches. Thank you, thank you!

Well! Where do I begin? I started an engagement with Janice, mid-Covid, to develop a powerful keynote speech. But, instead, I got a coach who helped me navigate challenging times as I reinvented myself and my career. She gave me the words and the practice to hold my own as I worked through tough business negotiations, and I learned how to speak up for myself in a powerful, persuasive way that was still true to who I am. It’s a rare opportunity to work with someone who can help you measurably level up your abilities and performance. Janice was a critical catalyst for some long overdue mindset shifts that had kept me from becoming the top performer I know I am capable of being.

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.

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.
