Are you ready to become an expert communicator with a message that delivers results?

Executive Presence Consulting

Be the leader who inspires teams and builds confidence at all levels of your organization. 

More people fear public speaking than death

Speaking, communication, and executive presence are skills that anyone can learn, build, and excel at with professional guidance and support.

Stop stressing about your next public speaking opportunity.

The demands on leaders have accelerated. Leaders need to instill a higher level of confidence and calm. Today’s leader is evaluated on their ability to connect, captivate, and succinctly convey important messaging, differentiators, and deliver impact that resonates internally and externally.

All spokespeople must hone their public speaking and media interview skills (virtual and in-person) to be solid, memorable, comfortable, and confident, command every appearance, control the message, and demonstrate thought leadership. Sharpening these skills earns and increases confidence from your internal and external audiences.

Kathryn's ability to understand how to coach each person was amazing.

You [Kathryn] met people where they needed you to be, and pushed just the right amount based on each personality. I was truly blown away watching that - it's a real talent that I don't know I've seen before.

When I am on set, whether television or radio, I know I’m prepared because she prepared! I know I’m in good hands.

It’s really hard to sum Kathryn up in a line or two. She’s really an amazing person. Her drive, determination, attention to detail and professionalism really sets her apart from anyone else. When I am on set, whether television or radio, I know I’m prepared because she prepared!

Kathryn Janicek is a rare find.

She has an innate ability to connect with people, meet them where they are and bring them farther than they thought they could go, it’s amazing to watch. Cookie-cutter media trainings just don’t cut it with Kathryn, she adapts, pivots, and freely shares her knowledge and most importantly her passion. She knows how to draw people in and create a comfortable but challenging place to learn. There is nothing better.
