What clients say:

When I was first invited to lecture passengers on a major cruise line I made a point of working with Jo Zorian to master the basics of speaking in front of a large audience. Her training proved invaluable and I have been regularly entertaining cruise passengers around the world for over five years.

- Guy Caplin, TV Director and Speaker

We used Joanne Zorian to help us understand what our corporate values mean for each part of our business and for each person in the Group. Their workshops were creative, refreshing and very enjoyable. Unlike some of the usual business facilitators, Zorian were prepared to take us on a journey “outside the corporate box” by providing a new perspective on what we stand for. In doing so, they engaged our staff and allowed them to own our vision and values.

- Chris Herrmannsen, Group Managing Director, Ochre House Recruitment

I‘d recommend this course to anyone.

Winner, BSkyB TV search for talent

What impressed me with Jo was her sheer professionalism, her focus on the positive, and her ability to get her trainees to identify their strengths and weaknesses. Her criticism was always constructive and real, with no hidden agendas. Jo made everyone feel special, and we opened up because we felt safe in her tuition and guidance.
I sincerely hope I get to work with Jo again and again, and anyone who has a chance to do the same is a lucky person.
