Janice has coached participants of corporate hackathons; supporting them harness their creativity & process their ideas into viable solutions to problems inherent within large corporate environments.
As founder of Great Life Distillery Janice’s mission is to help startups distil their big ideas into concrete goals that manifest in a kickass pitch. Janice’s moto is: An idea is not enough. It needs to have a clear purpose & a concise execution path that enables you to solve a problem or make something better; if it’s not that, then it’s not worth pitching.
