Jan Fox is all about Sharpening Your SPEAKability. She comes with plenty of credentials – a 4-Time Emmy Winning journalist at WUSA 9 for almost 20 years! Before that… at ABC in Boston and NBC in Portland, ME. She retired to play golf and live sanely ever after. Didn’t happen. People and businesses from every corner started asking her to speak on SPEAKing and to coach them to be better speakers. Jan hung out her shingle – FOX TALKS – and went to work, never looking back.
She loves taking the fear out of scared speakers or working with top notch high tech sales teams. It doesn’t take her long to figure out what’s needed to take their work up a notch. Her clients include Marriott, Verizon, International Association of Pet Cemeteries and Crematories (She only has gold fish!), many other associations, Agilex, WeddingWire.com., and more, plus just about every government agency in DC. Her proprietary SPEAK TWEAKS system is series of practice plans you can do anywhere, anytime to get good at speaking with fast results.
Jan’s most often asked question during her years on TV was, “How do I get myself on TV?” She wrote the book that answers that question: GET YOURSELF on TV. It gives you INsider secrets to get INside the studio. She’s on the board of the National Speakers Association DC chapter. Little known fact – a couple of live lobsters snagged the Channel 9 job. You’ll have to ask her!
When Jan was on TV, she must have coached hundreds of people prepare for a talk or interview for a job. Many of the young interns she mentored have gone on to great jobs in TV. One even won a Peabody!! Requests just kept coming after she left WUSA TV, so coaching is a big part of her business now. She loves it! Whether a CEO, a Rear Admiral, a Director of Engineering at a big IT company, a salesperson at WeddingWire.com, or the President of a company who is scared to speak, Jan assesses exactly where they are, matches it with where they want to be, and sends each one of them out with new found confidence and a powerful message.
