"Hi there, I use what I've learned as a comedian to help business leaders deal with change and enhance their communications, and I do it all with high energy and lots of laughter. Check out my keynotes below. I've shared these with thousands of organizations - from the Mayo Clinic to several of the Federal Reserve Banks, and just about everything in between: Health Care, Education, Safety, Hospitality, Financial, Sales, and Women's groups. Send me a note, I'd love to hear from you!

My Keynotes are:

CHANGE KEYNOTE: "Finding the Funny in Change" - I give unique and practical tips for handling change using humor. Groups learn how to diffuse tension instantly, kick off tough conversations, and facilitate communications during change situations.

LEADERSHIP & RESILIENCE KEYNOTE: "“Bouncing Back: Handling Setbacks with Humor & Resiliency” - Bouncing back. That's the key in life. Whether it's personally or professionally, we all hit bumps in the road when things go “not as planned.” Comedians know this more than anyone because they have a very high profile job. And when something goes wrong, it needs to be fixed fast and on the spot. In this fun and informative keynote, Jan offers tips and insights on handling life's pitfalls so you can move through these challenging situations. Don’t let blunders and mishaps hinder your future success! This keynote is based on Jan’s book, “Convention Comedian: Stories and Wisdom From Two Decades of Chicken Dinners and Comedy Clubs”.

COMMUNICATIONS KEYNOTE: Finding the Funny in Communications - I'm a comedy writer (written for the Tonight Show monologue, radio, greeting cards, CEO's, etc) and I'll show groups how to put humor into their business communications so that they connect with clients/coworkers, keep people engaged in what they are saying,sell their products or services and stay memorable.

Cubicle Comedy & Emcee - this is for groups that just want to sit back, relax and laugh. My clean humor focuses on work, family and day-to-day life. I've been featured in the Wall Street Journal, the Huffington Post, and the Washington Post for my clean humor.

I'm also author of 2 books "Finding the Funny Fast: How to Create Quick Humor to Connect With Clients, Coworkers, and Crowds" and Convention Comedian: Stories And Wisdom From Two Decades Of Chicken Dinners And Comedy Clubs."

I enjoy what I do and it shows!
