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.

I never felt like I had public speaking in me. When I met Janice, I was afraid of revealing that side to someone else, but she put me at ease right away. Her sessions are part therapy, part coaching. Now I look back at my old videos and see a noticeable difference in my confidence. Janice made me aware of subconscious speaking habits that were impacting my first impression on clients, like diminishing my own achievements or punctuating my sentences with apologies. Today, I go into calls feeling confident, assertive, and ready to show up as an expert. If you're looking to get your ego stroked, Janice probably isn't a good fit for you. But if you're willing to dig deep into what's working and what's not working in your speaking style, the results you can achieve are incredible. I've used her frameworks to close three deals that added up to over $30,000 in projects.

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.
