"Jane provides an inspirational approach to voice, speech and performance coaching. Very quickly she pinpointed the areas I needed to develop and her approach is incredibly effective, and fun. In fact, Jane has opened up for me a whole new way of approaching to speech and language. Indeed she has shown me how to use words with feeling and meaning.
After each coaching session I left feeling inspired and uplifted by the power of the voice. I would strongly recommend Jane’s coaching if you want to experience a greater appreciation of your voice, language and performance and develop your own speech in a range of personal and professional situations."
Melanie Chan, Lecturer York St John University.
