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."
