I have worked with Joanna for years – both at the UBC Sauder School of Business and at BCCIE. Projects have included open enrollment offerings and custom programs for a variety of clients, coaching services and in-house training for our team. Joanna is expert in media relations/media savvy, presentations and communications, and she is energetic, creative, learner-centered and results-driven in her approach. I would not hesitate work with her again.
Joanna offered me superb ideas for improving my presentations and for improving my performance as a presenter. If you’re ready to move beyond Death by PowerPoint, ask Joanna to help you.
Joanna is an exceptional producer to collaborate with. She is creative and communicative, a risk taker and someone who always delivers beyond expectations. Joanna has great interviewing skills and her love of helping people tell their stories helps people get comfortable being on camera. Her confidence, experience and fun loving attitude are evident in the finished product.
I have been fortunate enough to work with Joanna on several occasions, teaching media and presentation skills. She always brings energy, experience and knowledge to the table. Joanna has a dynamic approach to communications that serves clients well.
Joanna recently taught two workshops for the University of Northern BC’s Managers, Directors and Deans, the feedback from our participants was phenomenal, “this is the best workshop I have ever attended”, “please make sure you bring her back”. The workshop was appropriate to the audience, practical and immediately applicable, easy to grasp, entertaining and full of real life examples and opportunities to practice. Gary, the cameraman was a gem, his demeanour was perfect, we did not feel threatened in front of the camera, nervous, yes, but a safe environment to hone in our skills.
Joanna greatly assisted us in translating a very ambiguous concept into a superb result that measurably improved our hiring practices.
Joanna is a pro whose talents were integral to the success of a big media-relations project I undertook with a major client. I have every confidence In recommending Joanna for future communications projects.
