Why Work With Us

Jane Robertson & Associates Inc. delivered its first workshop in 1982. Since then, we have a built a business – and an enviable reputation – perfecting the art of business communication.

We have provided training across Canada and the United States, in both English and French, to more than 150 corporations and government agencies. We’ve also delivered workshops in several Latin American countries, including Mexico, Colombia and Brazil. As a leader in our field, many of North America’s largest blue-chip organizations regularly turn to us for professional development.

We built our solid reputation through our customized writing workshops, delivered by language specialists and professional writers. Today, in addition to our numerous writing programs, we offer presentation skills, as well as coaching for staff whose first language is not English. Of course, we can create or custom tailor a session to suit your specific business needs.

Our methods are quite different from those of ordinary training companies. Instead of cramming hundreds of people into a hotel meeting room, we deliver on-site training in your offices. Our sessions are intimate – 12 to 15 participants – and for more specialized programs, we arrange even smaller groups or one-on-one coaching.

All our workshops are highly interactive and hands on: in our writing workshops, participants write and in our presentation skills sessions they’re on their feet, presenting. Our facilitators provide lots of constructive feedback throughout the day. It’s more like coaching than training and our results demonstrate the difference this extra care makes.

Our Ethos

What we offer you can't get anywhere else. We're packed with people from the worlds of theatre, psychotherapy, business, sports, public and service sectors.

We call it Professional Personal Development … and it's a lot more than just training.

Hundreds of companies from major corporates to key public sector operations agree. You will too.
