Jan’s workshop was ideal for me.
“Jan's workshop was ideal for me. I knew I loved photography but feared what I didn't know. I gained confidence in practical information with lots of experiential learning. Even better, I was deeply inspired with possibilities for the future. I am grateful for Jan's extraordinary knowledge, creativity, and encouragement.”

I highly recommend Jan Phillips
"Jan was the keynote speaker at our annual convention and I was absolutely captivated with her presentation. Being in a profession that is all about the nuts and bolts of testing, evaluating and meeting governmental guidelines, Jan inspired the audience with her inspirational words and ideas. She made great use of stories to illustrate her points and engage the audience in her ideas. She challenged us to create an image of what we want to accomplish and that image itself becomes motivating on its own. Her ideas on creating balance in our life utilizing the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual sides of ourselves was just the sort of speech that we needed to get our convention off to a rousing start. It was both educational to the mind and nourishing to the soul. I highly recommend Jan Phillips as a speaker for your organization's event."

Jan Phillips is an extraordinarily creative, insightful, clear presenter
"Jan Phillips is an extraordinarily creative, insightful, clear presenter who can keep any audience riveted with mind-blowing facts and research, with colorful stories and anecdotes, and with wisdom garnered from diverse contexts around the world. She is unquestionably one of the best presenters I have experienced in my 25 years in higher education, and, on top of that, her presentations and workshops range across an incredible array of fascinating topics -- creativity, leadership, spirituality, entrepreneurship, original thinking, personal and social transformation, training, self-expression, photography. She can bring both meaningful learning and sincere joy to any university context. If you seek a speaker who can captivate your school, department, unit, or other university context, and also bring real, practical ideas that lead to satisfying transformation, you can't do better than Jan."

Jan has a amazing ability to touch the individual heart
"Jan has a amazing ability to touch the individual heart while at the same time being able to inspire the minds of the collective group to create, motivate and organize. She midwifes Spirit-led passion and then guides the co-creative process between diverse parts (minds or communities) to manifest a new creation that expresses something greater than the sum of its parts. It is something innovative and exciting; something that is a blessing to the world and all who are part of the creation. Simply, it is thrilling."
