Known for her riveting and inspiring presentations, Janine Turner is a highly acclaimed and sought-after public speaker.

“While Janine is a very successful and well known actor, I believe that she is a better speaker than actor.  When she was acting, she was portraying someone else’s words, thoughts and actions, but when speaking Janine is expressing her own ideas and thoughts, which are eloquent, energetic, and inspirational.” Chris Joiner – President Accordias Healthcare Services LLC.
