Success Stories

“I applaud Jane for the name of her business, Kinnexion, as it exemplifies her core competency, her ability to enable the cognitive and personal connections needed to shed what’s energy-draining while allowing positive change to manifest. Hire Jane to move through your greatest challenges and you will anchor what you require to shine.”
Mary Maloney

“Thank you Jane! Jane recently presented at the Bloomin’ Brands Women in IT resource group monthly meeting. She spoke on how we can take personal responsibility of our actions and reactions to difficult situations we face on a daily basis. The group loved her and everyone took away helpful hints on how they can take more control of their own success.”

“Jane is very insightful. She is passionate about women in leadership, and it comes through in every session with her. Jane challenged me, and somehow, made it feel like a great hug!”

“Jane was the featured speaker for PMI-Tampa Bay for Feb. 2017. Her topic addressed one of the biggest challenges for individuals in leadership roles within today’s organizations from a uniquely personal and practical perspective. Her direct and engaging style was a hit with our membership and based on feedback from attendees, most left with tools and techniques that they could immediately apply in their professional lives. Thanks again Jane and I look forward to working with you again in the future!”

“I’ve booked Jane Barr to speak at not one but two Working Women of Tampa Bay events in the past few months. Both times, her presentations were very well received. She is high energy, enthusiastic and of course an expert in her industry. I highly recommend her as a speaker, especially for events targeting female executives.”

Jessica Rivelli
Founder of Working Women of Tampa Bay

“Jane led our IT management team through a process to increase our departmental communications and facilitated our annual IT planning session. If it is any indication of her abilities, the presentation of our plans were 10 times better than the prior year.

Her style and personality proved to be very fitting with my leadership team. The team felt that Jane’s presence was not intimidating, but rather proved to be valuable. We would certainly do it again.”
