I was fortunate to receive a complimentary Speech Coaching session with Joyce which was extremely valuable and enjoyable. She helped me clarify exactly what it is that I want people to know about me (in 60 seconds or less) and made a few suggestions that have helped strengthen my presentations. Joyce is one of those “Gems” that enters your life and makes it better! Her kind nature, combined with her knowledge and love for Theatre adds a uniqueness to her sessions and I’m looking forward to working with her again.

I recently attend a Theatre Sports workshop put on by Joyce. I highly recommend that you let Joyce share her knowledge and passion for theatre games with you – it was a fun way to spend an evening and everyone in our group left with a smile on their face. These theatre games are wonderful team building exercises, and are a great way to get to know people you don’t know well (or at all). They would work really well in a conference or corporate setting.

Thank you again for your time. The sales team enjoyed its time with you on Saturday. I believe everyone took something positive from the session.
Joyce is a master at her craft! I just finished taking her Presenting Yourself workshop and loved it! I really picked up some great skills from her! She helped me get over some “serious” stage fright, boosted my confidence and helped me polish my delivery!
“I took Joyce Tinnion’s Coaching to create a good “elevator speech”. Joyce took me through a process of script development and speech rehearsal that was creative and lots of fun.
With her assistance I now have a great “elevator speech” that I deliver with confidence and style. Thank you Joyce!
Joyce involves your mind, body and laughter into each workshop. I was very impressed with how she brought tremendous value in a succinct way. We came away with practical skills we could use immediately.

Yesterday the @VICC4Nanaimo team had an EXCELLENT team-building session with Joyce Tinnion from http://joycetinnionproductions.ca/ Upon reflection.. Tears-Laughter-Silliness-Creativity all come to mind- more importantly the reinforcement of how strong our trust and allegiance is as a team. Thank you for such a wonderful pause moment during the ‘busy’ness of our professional lives!

Participating in the Biz Byte workshop such a great experience! I was extremely nervous to speak in front of a camera, and those running it, but I had a few sessions with Joyce and she made it so much easier. Her sincere, caring and relaxing approach set me at ease and really helped boost my confidence. Her help with my script was also greatly appreciated as it was such a change to try not to write in such a professional form and instead to write how I would talk to someone.
I’ve had many compliments on my video and it has increased “hits” on my website, which was my goal. I also had to introduce myself at a group meeting and I felt much more confident doing so.
I would highly recommend working with Joyce to improve your public speaking and/or take part in a Biz Byte workshop. Great value, fun and a fantastic learning opportunity with benefits that pay off!!
Thank you Joyce! ☺

Working with Joyce was easy and fun, as a result I think that my presentation skills improved very quickly. I feel more confident and more at ease when I speak in front of a group, and I received compliments from my listeners saying they thought that I might have been coached, and some said they could see a definite improvement in my delivery.
I highly recommend Joyce as a public speaking Coach.

I thought I would share a little story about your workshop. When I returned to the shop after the Chamber Luncheon I was met by Hannah who was about to run across the street to our other location. She was carrying a small bag with her so I asked what was she up to? She explained that it was a cookie that she had promised Niki during the game of gentle persuasion. They took the part about you telling them to be genuine with their offers. The next remark I heard was Niki stating that she was getting ready to bath Hannah’s dog (that is what she offered). I offered a raise to Paige to give up the chair for me and that is what I am doing. So you see everyone took away something to remember.

Testimonial for JT Productions
At our annual holiday dinner event, Joyce Tinnion led the attendees through some creative, interactive games, that put a smile on everybody’s faces. You could see that they had fun, and were impressed by the diversity of activities Joyce presented. I would highly recommend JT Productions for any activity where you want to engage a group in team building, or other group dynamics.

This Theatre Workshop:
- showed the therapeutic health benefits of smiling & laughing
- expanded the imagination
- exercises gave group-building benefits
- a chance for expressing silliness.
Joyce was fabulous to work with and she created a workshop tailored to our team. The activities were fun and they allowed us to play and work together as a team. I would recommend Joyce to any group.

Thank you so much for coming to Nanaimo Hospice and providing an opportunity for volunteers and staff to be together for such a fun-filled afternoon. We did laugh ourselves silly. Volunteers have expressed gratitude for the opportunity to get to know each other in this fun way. Besides having fun and laughing, which is important on its own, the workshop provided us an opportunity to build a stronger team and to demonstrate to the team other ways to provide self-care. It also allowed us to show our gratitude to the volunteers and staff.
Your easy-going manner and gentle leadership helped created a safe environment for all of these dynamics and outcomes to unfold. Thanks again. I hope to be able to work with you again in the future.
