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

Jan is a superb instructor. She conducts our Presentation Skills classes and is able to improve the speaking abilities of many in a matter of a few hours. Witty and engaging she is able to charm the best out of everyone, and all who meet her come away better persons from the experience. Jan is flexible, dependable, and articulate, and someone we bring back year after year to teach and coach our volunteers. She is a real pleasure to work with and I always consider her workshops as a good investment in my people.

Dynamo on the top of her game. Great speaker.

David Brennan, McCullogh & Associates

Jan has worked with our company to facilitate a number of excellent training programs and she has become a true partner and extension of our Human Resources department; she understands our needs and does a superb job of planning, organizing and facilitating sessions aligned with those needs. Her style and energy fosters great interaction amongst the participants and she has the ability of introducing new concepts to the group in a crisp and effective manner. Jan is a competent trainer and a pleasure to work with.

I received more practical information that I can use on a daily basis from your Meeting Skills workshop than any training I have ever attended.

Joan Wallberg, Director of Human Resources, StoneFly Networks, Inc.

Jan did a great job working with us to identify our key training needs. She spent time talking with our associates to learn our culture and environment to better understand our challenges. She put together and delivered an impactful training program that addressed our issues. Her professional and caring approach and her solid training skills hit a home run with our managers. With Jan, we have laid a solid foundation for moving our entire management team ahead. We look forward to working with her more in the future to accelerate our progress.

Jan always does an excellent job. She is extremely relaxed, non-judgmental, warm, supportive and makes my staff feel very successful at difficult subjects.

Pat Zamora, Program Manager, City of San Diego

Jan’s Time Management classes are always well-received. People find her classes very practical with lots of good tips and information. She’s an extremely well organized person and that is demonstrated in her classes and the advice she gives others.

Liz Schiff, City of Berkeley

Jan has proven to be an excellent facilitator in the seminars she has conducted for us. Her style encourages open communication from the participants in her classes that promotes the sharing of ideas and experiences. She has the ability to introduce new and complex concepts in a clear and concise manner and demonstrates excellent knowledge of the subject matter.

Dan Ferbal, Director of Training, Evans Hotels

Thank you very much for a fine workshop. You have a friendly, interested demeanor that made each person feel validated for their suggestions and contributions. You were wonderful at taking care to learn individuals’ names, encouraging them to participate, and complimenting them on their great ideas. To me, this is what made the workshop so worthwhile—having a “community experience” that was masterfully facilitated and made everyone feel better about themselves, each other, and their work.

Trena Cleland, Dept. of Public Health, City of Berkeley

We consider Jan a management partner. Jan helps us push through the wall we all reach in managing our people, managing our expectations, and managing our abilities. Sometimes we get too involved in how we currently are doing things, so it is helpful to have someone with an outside perspective giving us new possibilities of how we could handle a situation. We see definite performance improvement in the people Jan has coached; performance improvement that we didn’t have the ability—or the time—to do ourselves.
