Janel was a pleasure to work with and gave an insightful talk at our conference.  She went above and beyond by sitting in on much of the conference prior to wrapping it up for us as our closing keynote.  One attendee had this to say, “Wonderful way to close out the conference!  Janel was very engaging and had some great tips.”

"Janel created a customized leadership training institute for the Minnesota Lottery. Selecting Janel for this project was the best thing we could have done!  She had the inherent ability to connect directly with our leadership team, creating an environment that allowed them to learn and grow. It was great working with Janel. We couldn't be more pleased with the results!"
