“Dynamo on the top of her game. Great speaker.”

I have been impressed with how Jan connects and establishes rapport with people in her classes. I also appreciate the consistently high quality of Jan’s classes. I know I can always count on her to provide training that helps our people focus on what to do to move forward. Through her classes she has helped build the confidence of our staff and assisted them in being the best they can be, which in turn has allowed them to provide better service to their customers.

Jan is an excellent instructor. Her style was well received by a mixed group of upper managers, middle managers, and support staff. The high ratings and kudos she received from everyone was particularly significant coming from a group that met at 8:00 a.m. on a Saturday, the first day of a three-day week-end!

Even seasoned managers who have attended this type of training before spoke highly of the impact and effectiveness of this program. Two examples of feedback I received from participants: ‘Despite having been through such classes before, this particular training class had the biggest impact on me. What I learned will help me work better with others and also manage my own time,’ and ‘Thanks for this program. It, indeed, was time well spent and a great refresher for us old folks and a good start for the new managers. Jan is great.’ With the diverse personality and management styles at Solekai, it’s important for our managers to understand the most effective way to communicate not only with their employees but their co-workers. This program was a very worthwhile investment.

I have found Jan to be an outstanding workshop leader. She provided practical and usable information about Business Writing in a fast-paced, interesting and fun class. It was easy to tell that Jan enjoyed teaching and that she really cared that her participants learn. She was generous with one-on-one help to participants, and encouraged participation by providing lots of positive feedback and making everyone feel at ease.

Jan is great: poised, prepared, professional, personable.

Jan’s Meeting Skills Workshops were critical in shaping the Artes meeting culture. She has a great presentation style and kept the crowd entertained. The team really loved her meeting simulation as it gave employees a better idea of how we would like a meeting to run. Her feedback was a valuable tool to improve our meeting habits, and after the fact, she continued to be a partner in the process by conducting follow up meetings with our HR staff to assess and confirm the success of the training. We plan to use Jan again in the future!

Jan’s Business Writing workshop was exactly what our team needed. Everyone from the most seasoned managers to the newest staff members benefited from the materials and the tips she shared. She kept everyone engaged and made it fun!

Lori Loken-King, SVP, Internal Audit, Countrywide Bank

Our management team truly enjoyed Jan’s presentation. One of her strengths is providing real world examples and direction. This led to many of our managers taking immediate action following the training and applying what they learned in Jan’s training. She set the bar higher for the managers and provided them with the tools to achieve.

If you want a knowledgeable, fast-paced course in Performance Appraisals or Sexual Harassment, use Jan Zaragoza. We have used Jan for both courses at Jenny Craig. She engages the audience, tailors the program to your organization, and keeps it moving. We’ll use her again at Jenny Craig, Inc.

Positive and inspirational. The content and speaker were absolutely outstanding!
