    After training with Jane, I gave my talk on Appropriate Image Presentation. They loved it. I got lots of applause and individual thanks from the members.
    Thank you so much for the help you gave me and for very quickly getting to the crucial things I needed to change.

  • Angela Heising

    "Jane coached three finalists on presentation and interview skills for our International Paul Simons Awards.... our team presented with panache and impact - best of all - one (of them) became the first Kiwi to win."

  • Dean Reihana

    Hey Jane,
    Thank you for coaching me for the wedding ceremony for my sis.
    When the time came . . . . . I nailed it! YAY!  
    I spoke clearly and loud enough for all to hear, had full control of the whole ceremony and best of all, I had everyone in the palm of my hand.
    They all enjoyed listening ..and I added my own spark to the event without stealing the attention away from the newly weds.

  • Sinda Hall

    Hello Jane

    Thank you very much for a really great training session today.  I was frankly terrified when I saw the camera, plus having to do a talk in front of my peers.  I just hate anything like this.  But you made it non threatening and were very encouraging, so thank you for all the advice and tips.

    Kind Regards   
    Sinda Hall

    When I knew had to speak at my wedding I was dreading it. I never imagined I’d be able to stand up and speak without notes - but with Jane’s help I not only managed it I got fantastic feedback and everyone was very impressed.

  • Craeg Williams

    "All it took was three sessions, and it was worth every penny.
    I delivered my presentation with ease and all the feedback I received was very positive.
    Jane's teaching method is systematic and gets results fast. I am happy to recommend her to anyone looking to improve their public speaking skills"

    Having delivered numerous speeches in the past. I knew I was OK but I wanted to be better than OK.

    After a chance meeting with Jane, I immediately employed her services as a coach.

    Hi Jane,

    I’ve had loads of great feedback from our team about your session (on Strategic Storytelling) – people really enjoyed it. You’ve got us thinking about our storytelling telling style and impact – it was wonderful to have you as part of the (training) day. I look forward to working with you again soon.

    Hi Jane

    Just wanted to say thank-you for a great talk last night (to the PWG of 'Dress for Success') - you could have heard a pin drop, leaving the group buzzing with excitement keen to put their next speech to the test.
    I for one have re-written my story and will not be shy to put my hand up in future (or will do so with confidence).

  • Yvonne McLean

    ACC (ICF), Executive Coach

    "Working with Jane enabled me to take my presentation skills up another level."

    "I highly recommend Jane's services."
  • Tracy Manu

    I’ve spoken to audiences of up to 100 people and thought I was pretty good at what I do.  Then I worked with Jane!
    Jane helped me take my keynote speaking to a new level!
    She helped me construct my presentation in a way that was precise, informative and authentically me.

On strategic storytelling - ‘Tell to Win’ author and business guru Peter Guber describes purposeful storytelling as a ‘Trojan Horse’. An audience takes in a good story not realising they’ve received the teller’s hidden message. Sneaky? Maybe. But it works.
