Founder and President of Positive Communications (wwww.poscom.com), author Christine K. Jahnke has spent the past 20 years helping people from all walks of life stand and deliver before audiences large and small. A Washington, D.C. based speech coach, Chris prepped First Lady Michelle Obama for her International Olympic Committee speech and Al Franken for his U.S. Senate debates.
What began as her own desire not to panic when called upon in class has grown into a mission to encourage more women to enter the public square. Chris has coached executive women from companies as diverse as Avon to NASCAR and National Geographic Channel to Coca-Cola. She advised Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and has prepped more women candidates and elected officials than any other trainer. She also provides strategic message development to leading nonprofit organizations.
What motivates Chris is working with passionate people who have a story to tell. The best speakers reveal something about themselves and that's why Chris has always admired the former Governor of Texas Ann Richards.
Chris wrote THE WELL-SPOKEN WOMAN (www.wellspokenwoman.com) to encourage more women to find and use their voices. She believes you can be well-spoken, too!
