Conference Workshops

"Jan is engaging, humourous, articulate and genuine. Facilitated great conversations with participants! Her knowledge and demonstration of Social Media helped novices and seasoned users understand how to make the most of this medium."

Mayor Sharon Gaetz, City of Chilliwack

“Jan’s presentation was lively, interactive and informative. She’s an engaging and humourous speaker that knows her audience. Jan had our PGA members practicing specific tips to improve how they can deliver a more compelling message using the power of our personal presence, so they can boost their positive connections with golf facility staff, members, and guests.” 

Grant Gray, PGA of BC
