Complete Peace of Mind When Working With JoAnn

If meeting and conference planners don't already have enough on their plate (I know, in a former life, I've been one), nothing helps more than working with an experienced, seasoned speaker; someone you can count on to deliver a superb program offering significant value and content with a great entertainment factor...someone you absolutely don't have to worry about. Confidence and peace of mind is highly valued in the conference planning arena.

That's what you'll get when you engage JoAnn for your next event. She is a diverse, flexible, and the consummate professional. She has spoken all over North America, to thousands, and have had some crazy experiences along the way. Honestly - nothing at an event can surprise her or throw me....well hopefully not.

In our evolving business climate of expanded human consciousness, many find it difficult to connect the drive for profits to service and human leadership. Yet, it's becoming more common for social entrepreneurs, governments, and non-business and business entities to demonstrate a return on investment reflecting skilled financial stewardship -- profits matter.
