"Jan's skills as a mentor, agent for genuine and lasting change,
and in developing executives are unparalleled. In truth, I have not
met anyone who is her equal in her chosen fields of endeavour. I
cannot state highly enough the capacity and good counsel that she
has brought to all parts of my team and especially the value of her
counsel to myself".
"Your mentoring process 'Taking Personal Control' has been
amazing. Our sessions have taken me from feeling completely down
beat and burnt out, to feeling now that I am powered up and ready
to take on the world! Your exceptional personal skill with
balancing emotional issues with practical problem solving
techniques if fantastic. I can see now a real vision for my life
where I can use my career to truly express what is most important
to me in life! This has been an amazing gift, thank you!"

I was facing significant challenges...an emotional and
professional rollercoaster, moving from a lifetime of involvement
in our family business, to being part of a more corporate
environment. In a world of mergers and acquisitions ..you helped me
understand ...a strategy to help me navigate through. There is a
way for both the person to grow and be engaged while improving the
business at the same time. For that I am truly grateful.

"ARC and Baulderstone have been engaged in a partnering
relationship since mid-2005. Jan has been facilitating change,
developing partnering relationships and mentoring individuals.
Jan's energy, drive and enthusiasm have ensured the ARC /
Baulderstone Better Business Group has performed as a high
performance group. She led a critical mass of our people through a
journey to better understand the value of working together. We have
seen much value in the process, from an individual level to a
"Jan Kelly has assisted me in changing ingrained cultural issues
that were preventing Jeans West from reaching its potential. Jan
has worked with myself and the senior leadership team, our Product
and Planning team and our Store Management team. These are our most
crucial teams. As a result we have energized the business,
culturally and financially. Jan has the ability to break through
practices and attitudes which seemed intractable. This has worked
at all levels of the business and continues today".

"I had the privilege of being mentored by Jan Kelly. This
process allowed me to prepare for the significant international
business challenges that lay ahead. Jan Kelly has made a long-term
positive difference in my life. She is a warm, wise and vibrant
woman who enabled me to produce results with courage, resilience
and determination. After the sessions were over Jan has been
unceasing in her support and generous in her guidance. I am
privileged to have learned from her".
"We entered into a partnering process with a major customer. Our
objective was broad; to develop a better way of doing business
together. While our respective company values were aligned and
while our people were committed, we did not have a way forward, a
roadmap which could provide the process of developing a unique
partnership model. The pathway was provided by Jan Kelly. I would
thoroughly recommend Jan to any company who feels ready to take the
leap from pure transactional relationships to ones based on mutual
benefit and trust. The success we have had is qualitative and real
and is due to a great part to Jan's work with us".

"There is no question in my mind that the processes we went
through (Profile and mentoring) were revealing and insightful. Your
model is innovative and comprehensive, and seems to enable specific
and accurate analysis of what makes a leader".
"The results from the PIPS facilitation has exceeded all our
expectations. Our client is absolutely delighted and has commenced
the mentoring process for all senior executives."
