Hi, I am Jane Paterson. I started my business because I was tired of seeing good people not succeeding because of their poor communication.
I know when people develop these skills, they are empowered to speak up. They enrich their relationships, build their careers, grab those leadership roles, form real connections, and even bring about change.
If you are like most people, you have focused on every area of your career apart from speaking. But, becoming a confident, effective and engaging communicator is an achievable goal.
If you are ready to take charge of your business connections and personal relationships and make your voice heard, I will help you reach that goal.
“I heard Jane speak at my company’s event organized by the Women of Ericsson employee resource group. Her talk was so inspiring that I wanted to continue learning from her. And so I reached out to see if she could help me to improve my business speaking skills. My home language is not English, and I was always hesitant to speak up in a business setting. After identifying my goals, Jane designed a unique program to address them. Within a few sessions, she had taught me so much: confidence development, constructing a clear, concise, and persuasive messaging, and so much more. I use all the techniques and continue with the voice-strengthening exercises she suggested. I feel more comfortable speaking up now. This is a significant achievement for me, and I can see it is helping my career growth.”
“Jane Paterson provided expert guidance in preparing me for a major conference I hosted for over 200 nurses. Jane quickly recognized what I needed and within a short time assessed, recommended and evaluated my performance. Jane took me through the proper way to greet the participants, introduce speakers, conduct the meeting and deliver my lecture with confidence. She gave insightful pointers on how to speak into a microphone, when to pause for effect and even critiqued the content of my presentation. The program was a huge success. In hindsight, I know it would not have been as successful without Jane’s support and influence”
“As a whiskey ambassador with 10 years of experience and sales representative for 5 years, I am client-facing all day. I started working with Jane to improve my client engagement and sales pitch. I loved how she took the time to customize a program to meet my unique goals. We worked on all aspects of speaking—I learned the importance of body language, my own, and the clients! After each session, I had usable techniques that I could confidently put into practice. A few months later, I presented in a high-pressure sales situation, and I used so much of what I had learned from Jane.”
