Public Speaking 

Working from a comprehensive approach that links personal and professional goals, Jan develops each client’s unique presentation style, resulting in extremely effective, forthright, eloquent communication.

Additional services include speechwriting, leadership image consultation, media training, strategic planning, and revamping in-person communication styles to enhance corporate re-branding. She can assist in overcoming any communication challenge, from big events to day-to-day communications.

Your speaking style is unique to you. No cookie-cutter approach to presenting can match the appeal and effectiveness of a speaker who is in confident, easy command of the moment, and able to adapt to changing circumstances. Jan works with clients to enhance their uniquely dynamic assets as communicators, selecting methods specific to each individual, empowering them with self-possessed success in every speaking situation.
