Customer feedback

  • Rob Page

    "Jane was wonderful. She quickly understood my needs and ran the two hour workshop to meet them perfectly. The Olympic Ambassadors were unanimous in their praise, and many said it was the best public speaking and presentation skills advice they had received. I would totally recommend Jane."

  • Alex Jenner

    "My groom speech went very well. I stayed calm on the day, kept smiling and I came across clearly - even got a tear from my bride! Very pleased with the result. Our sessions helped massively.
    I’m now regularly using the techniques and exercises…. (I learnt with you) …for my business presentations.
    Thank-you again for everything."

    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.

    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

  • 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.

  • 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"

  • 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.

  • Eseta Nicholls

    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).

  • Sally Fienerman


    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.

  • Jill Wilkinson

    Director CMB NZ

    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.

  • Tim Paulsen


    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.
