About Kathryn Janicek
Hi, I am Kathryn Janicek. I'm the media coach and public speaking trainer people reach out to when they need help presenting at a higher level to a live audience, selling their company to investors, learning how to present better in front of their teams, telling their story to attract dream clients - or to gain media attention.
I've spent almost 20 years managing television and social media at television stations across the United States. Having coached top talent, producers and writers within the media industry, I now take that discipline to entrepreneurs and corporate executives who wish to move up in their careers and gain more business. I teach them how to sound and look like the expert that's inside of them.
