I reached out to Janice as I was looking for one-on-one coaching to strengthen my public speaking skills as well as coaching to enhance my executive presence in the workplace. I interviewed a number of other coaches during my search and I was immediately impressed by Janice’s professionalism and clear interest to understand and customize her coaching to fit her clients. Previous to Janice, I had not had any personal coaching and was apprehensive that the coaching would be a formulaic process that she applied to each client. However, I found that Janice spent the time to get to know me, understand my career goals and was able to adapt and customize our coaching sessions to maximize the benefit to me. I felt she genuinely cared about my success and was flexible with my busy work schedule. I found her style encouraging and considerate, but also thought provoking and inspiring. Janice not only helped me gain confidence and build a succinct and persuasive message through my presentations, but she also helped me bring awareness to my diction and the subtle yet powerful influence it has on my everyday language. I am very happy to have found Janice and would recommend her to anyone looking for similar coaching.

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!

In searching for an executive communication coach and public speaking coach, I came across Janice who fit the bill perfectly as she offered both coaching services. We worked on refining my communication skills by drafting, reviewing and re-writing emails as well as role-playing. She really helped shift my approach and mentality when it comes to having difficult conversations with team members as well as offering ideas and feedback to senior leaders. As for public speaking, I was preparing for four presentations and although already comfortable with speaking in front of an audience, I was looking to hone my skills. We worked through all of the presentations together and I felt confident and prepared as I delivered them. My sessions with Janice were productive, educational and enjoyable and I wouldn't hesitate to work with her in the future.

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.
