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!
