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."

What a great workshop
"I was a participant in the recent workshop that you presented for the Dominican Sisters in Columbus, OH. What a great workshop. Everybody was talking about it long after you left, saying how special it was. Thank you so much, Jan, for doing this kind of work. I hope that you felt as affirmed as we did as a result of your workshop."

Your seminar changed my whole attitude about my work as a photographer
"Your week-long seminar at Pendle Hill years ago changed my whole attitude about my work as a photographer, and since then I have joined 4 camera clubs and have won many awards. Thank you so much. Hope you will continue to bring out the best in all of us just being you."

The universal response to Jan’s day long presentation was so enthusiastic!
"The universal response to Jan's day long presentation of "The Word, The Image, The Story: Tools of Transformation was so enthusiastic! Jan is an inspirational speaker and leader who has the ability to engage and encourage others' creative processes. Through poetry, compelling images, stories, and invitations to explore one's own inner wealth of experience, she was able to draw out even those who were convinced they were not "creative"! The time she spent with us was too short!"

The experience of Jan in person is revelatory and life-changing
