Speaking and Event enthusiastic ravers!
Laurel McLay Founder of Genlead www.genlead.co.nz Thanks to the lovely Janelle Fletcher for MCing my event last night for experts looking to move up to the next level. Janelle is a natural born MC - she immediately engaged the room, kept the energy at a fabulous pace, was the super-organiser and was my life saver in what was a true milestone for me - loving your work girl and can't wait to come to your event next week!
Sally Anderson's Book Launch - Freefall www.sally-anderson.com
"It takes a skilled presenter to MC an event. Goes way beyond being just an inspiring speaker! I recently launched my book in the US marketplace and needed to find someone to MC our book launch event here in Auckland, New Zealand. Janelle’s contribution on the evening surpassed what I could ever have wished for. I have known Janelle for nearly 10 years and to witness her evolution over this time has been extraordinary – she is a woman who compassionately honors the listening of the audience, is a consummate servant leader in her ability to make people feel important, goes way beyond the call of duty and adds the x-factor to any event. As a female entrepreneur in New Zealand these past 10 years, I admire any woman who stands out, who champions their vision, who stands for a better world, who are prepared to challenge status quo, who continually show up and will not take no for an answer, who knows what it’s like to walk in the shoes of others and ‘pay their knowledge forward’, who believe in who they are and who they are becoming and Janelle is all of this and more! Needless to say, I cannot recommend Janelle highly enough for any event that stands for exemplary standards of performance. You will NOT be disappointed!"

"Generous in sharing her wisdom. I invited Janelle to speak on the subject "Embody Your Full Potential" at an event I had organised for both clients and friends. It was aimed to help encourage us to have more confidence in our bodies and in our lives. We were all captivated by Janelle's warmth and charisma! Janelle is an engaging and honest speaker who inspires in a very real way - there is nothing vague or airy-fairy in her approach. Her concepts and philosophy are extremely grounded, while at the same time encouraging us all to fly!!"

You were so easy to work with and you are great at self monitoring. We got through it so quickly and easily. You are a natural.
From Pat Armitstead - Joyologist www.joyology.co.nz
Dear Janelle, I felt compelled to write you after seeing you organise, present and also be MC at your recent fundraiser for Catwalk. I have been observing your progress over the last 6 years and I think this event represents a turning point for you! Not just for the funds raised so that you may run the New York marathon in November as part of the CatWalk Spinal Cord Injury Team but for what was transformed on the night of the event itself. You are an inspiration for other woman to model and your leadership and confidence was a joy to watch.
As the evening unfolded I became aware of the commanding presence emanating from you and the level of energy in the room. It is often hard work maintaining the flow and attantion span at this kind of event, yet at each step people were rivetted. It was not about the garments, though they were important for the clothing sponsor. It was about the people in the garments, what you had learned about each of them, how you had harnessed their support and the telling of the individual stories that captured our attention.
The external glamour in the garments housed something quite special and you captured that as you brought each lady forward. You delivered with aplomb and used your gift for presenting with aplomb, taking the audience on a journey, touching hearts and evoking laughter!
You shared the intimate details of each womans journey through life, almost all of them challenged more than once by life events, and your told us how they made it through. You showed us the strength of women and what we bring to community and how we can empower and liberate each other from circumstances. You showed us an enduring possibility Janelle!
I think the thing I marvel about the most with you is, you have come from a place of feeling “stripped and bare” to the present where you now stand as evidence of the reclaimation process you chose to follow. You are one of the most beautiful, resourceful and courageous women I know and I see you being accessed for the life changing contribution you can bring. New York November 2011 will be your launch pad! Congratulations!
