The 7 Biggest Mistakes Healthcare Professionals Make on Camera (and How to Fix Them Instantly)

This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Are You Going to



Or Are You Going to BRING It?

A scientific discovery… a new cure… a front-page story… a prime-time interview…

You might have millions of dollars riding on this one speaking or media opportunity.

Are you going to wing it? Or are you going to bring it?

As an experienced healthcare professional… you’re used to planning everything. You only allow highly-trained professionals to touch each area of the business.

Yet if you treated your accounting… or even your office cleaning… with as little thought as most healthcare professionals treat their public speaking and interviews… your accounting and your office would be a mess!

You’re a scientist, you set out to cure illnesses, save lives, and help people become healthier…

But are you a great public speaker? Are you made for video and media?

Kathryn Janicek Image

If you’re honest with yourself… the answer is probably “no.” Very few healthcare professionals are.

When you’re ready to become one of the elite healthcare professionals who can bring in millions of dollars for your hospital or practice… just through one talk or interview…

Then you need to know this secret:

Most of the healthcare professionals who shine on stage and on video weren’t born that way.

They learned how to do it. More specifically… they trained to do it.

This means… most of them had public speaking and media trainers.

High Performance is a

Performing Art...

Kathryn Janicek Image

You may not realize it… but public speaking and media are performing arts. They have more in common with being a singer or an actor than they do with being a business strategist.

Most healthcare professionals think that the things that make them great doctors will also make them great public speakers.

Nothing could be further from the truth. That’s like thinking that the things that make you great at manufacturing and selling microphones will also make you great at singing through the microphones.

You wouldn’t expect to get up on stage and sing a song that electrifies your audience without training.

So why do so many healthcare professionals executives think they can get on stage and give a speech that electrifies their audience without training?

Why do so many healthcare professionals think they can give an Oscar-worthy monologue… without having taken acting lessons?

Without proper training… your talk or interview is at best boring… and at worst DOA. So are whatever results you could have gained for your hospital or practice by giving a rousing talk your audience would never forget.

You may have millions of dollars riding on this one talk or interview. You may have the chance to make your hospital or practice a household name. You’ve invested days out of your schedule to travel to the event.

Are you going to flub this chance just because you didn’t want to spend a few hours learning how to deliver your message powerfully?

Or are you going to be one of the elite speakers who understand the need for training and therefore wins gold?

If you’re ready to win gold for your hospital or practice on stage and on camera…

Then you need an Olympic-worthy trainer.

Hi, I’m

Kathryn Janicek…

A three-time Emmy award-winning media coach and public speaking trainer with 20 years of experience.

I have a passion for helping others turn opportunities into gold, and to say I’ve been doing this with proven success for a long time is an understatement…

This is a Results-Driven Business & I am Driven By Exceptional Results…

This is What My Clients Say About Working With Me

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.

She is born with incredible business skills and her recommendations for media were localized and strategic.

I knew Kathryn would be my savinggrace. Her connections, her media savvy, her organization, and her quickness is an asset… she is born with incredible business skills and her recommendations for media were localized and strategic. Awesome. She handled the hard stuff with ease, and when I needed last minute assistance, onsite in Chicago, she said “I got this. Tell me time and location.” And just like the fairy Godmother of Everything, she granted that wish too. Because of this, I’ve hired her for more projects and am already recommending her to my colleagues in Chicago and beyond.

When I need the best in Chicago for media coaching, executive production, TV production/personality or scripting, editing and telling “THE STORY”; I go to Kathryn Janicek!

There is no one else in the country I would rely on for my media and production strategies than Kathryn. I have watched this executive producer lead market 3’s top morning news show, direct and create amazing and compelling stories for TV and global corporations as well as volunteer her limited spare time to better her community by helping non profits close to her heart. Kathryn will assess, study and then create your communications strategy and then visually align it with your desired message. She will collaboratively design and produce your TV or production needs that will drive response, ROI and evoke emotion. I have seen many media professionals in my experience as a leader in the non profit space and Kathryn continues to rise above and exceed all expectations.

I can’t thank Kathryn enough for all the help she has given me.

She has been excellent in providing personalized, individual advice in public speaking and presentation. Her training and constructive encouragement has helped me accomplish more than I ever would have had. The techniques I have learned have already made a difference, and will continue to do so for years to come. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is looking for ways to advance their careers or develop important life skills that may not have been taught in a classroom setting, such as skills in public speaking, presentation, or social etiquette on a professional level.

I’ve worked with many (many!) media and public speaking trainers over the last 28 years, and I can tell you without hesitation Kathryn is one of the best.

Of course, she’s great at helping with body language, visuals, eye contact, bridging, flagging, landing messages, etc. But where she really shines is in helping folks think about the impression they make and ensuring they’re seen, not just heard.
