We are thrilled to bring an extraordinary workshop to the Brambles Studio! Janice Otremba, people and performance catalyst from Kamloops, will give you the tools to take your business to the next level.

We are seeking smart, savvy, entrepreneurs and business people who love what they do and want to get even better at telling others about it.

❓ When faced with selling yourself… have your thoughts or words ever missed the mark?
❓ Are you caught in being an ‘average’ rather than becoming ‘GREAT’?
❓ When stressed, under pressure or forced to think on your feet… do you lose your mind?
❓ Do you panic? Draw a blank? Stumble over your words? Lose focus? Get tongue tied?
❓ Do you have the perfect response AFTER the conversation?

If you answered ‘yes’ to even one of these, then THIS ElevaTOUR is for you… or someone you know!

Go beyond a pitch and deliver an elevaTOUR!

Learn how to generate interest so you hear the words… tell me more or how do you do that?

Janice Otremba delivers: Clarity. Actionable AHA moments. Practical, results-driven tools. And a lot of FUN!

You will learn:

✅ The formula to craft a great pitch every time!
✅ How to use two simple phrases to engage others.
✅ How to tell YOUR story in 60-seconds or less.
