You’re about to give a high-stakes technical presentation.
You want to be confident.
You need to project competence and credibility.
You have to engage a sophisticated but distracted audience
- and you can’t even remember your opening line.
So what do you do? Dread it or fix it?
Most people are not comfortable speaking in public. The good news is that as your speech coach I can teach you skills on how to manage your fears. For the past 25 years I’ve helped scientists, engineers and technology experts successfully communicate complex information.
I’ll teach you how to easily prepare, persuade and enjoy sharing your ideas.

”Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has a growing need to engage political and scientific decision makers, as well as other key stakeholders. We hired Jan as part of an effort to help staff confidently and effectively communicate these complex research. Jan spent considerable time with senior Laboratory leadership and did a tremendous job improving the communication and presentation skills of our staff. She is highly skilled and we recommend her to others facing similar issues as ours.”
Jacqueline Fernette, Communications &
National Laboratory, (PNNL)
”Jan has a special ability to understand and correctly identify the ’communications issue’ and offer solutions. The most important skill was how to breathe correctly and use my voice effectively. I loved the ’impostor complex’ discussion and am hoping I can learn from it. I also realized how much speaking effectively is a mental skill.”
