She started the evening with a fabulous monologue and then kept things flowing throughout the program with clever transitions. She hit just the right note with humor and professionalism."
"We invited Jan back for a second year to deliver a final morning conference keynote (and emcee again). The first year our attendees “Found the Funny in Change.” This year they took away lots of ideas for using humor in business. They laughed while they learned about developing humor quickly and working through guidelines for keeping out of trouble when using humor."
"Having you start the evening off with laughs and tears of joy turned out to be one of the best and most memorable parts of the convention. The social event attendees loved how you took the time to include legal in your performance and you set the tone of the evening. We received many wonderful comments from our colleagues about how much they enjoyed your performance."
