Praise for Janice Kaplan...

  • “Kaplan’s plan to be more grateful is approachable for anyone. Her conversational tone is encouraging, like talking to a good friend who’s having a great day and wants to share it with you… Simple, effective procedures that can be easily incorporated into even the busiest lifestyle.”


  • “Our conferences promise to educate, challenge and inspire. Janice Kaplan achieved all three for our 1,200 attendees! Janice's warm approach made her extremely approachable on and off the stage.”

    Tiffany O'Donnell, Chief Operating Officer, IWLC

  • “She was wonderful in all circumstances from a 300 person event to smaller 40 people events to live on the radio. She impressed everyone, was very nice and easy to get along with throughout the entire two days.”

    WITF

  • “Janice was a hit! Her fact-based, yet humorous, approach helped make a subject that could be deemed “touchy-feely” both approachable and commonsense.”

    Danielle Mackey, Director of Marketing, Finkelstein & Partners, LLP

Janice Kaplan: Speech Topics


① THE GENIUS OF WOMEN | ② THE GRATITUDE DIARIES

① The Genius of Women


Extraordinary women have managed to shine in every generation, and in this inspiring talk, Janice Kaplan describes how they overcame obstacles and unconscious bias. Drawing on women we know and love like RBG and Oprah, and those we should know but don’t, such as Fei-Fei Li and Frances Arnold, she explores the powerful forces that have rigged the system--and celebrates the women past and present who have triumphed anyway. In talking about genius, she offers a blueprint for success for all women.

② The Gratitude Diaries: How Looking On the Bright Side Can Transform Your Life


After overseeing a major national survey on gratitude, Janice Kaplan spent a year living more gratefully. From both extensive research and personal experience, she describes how gratitude can improve every aspect of life including marriage, career, and health. She explains how appreciating your spouse changes the neurons of your brain and why saying thanks helps CEOs succeed. With warmth and wit, she inspires an audience to think positively and start living their own best year ever.
