Janie Lazar Event MC/Discussion Facilitator

Janie is first and foremost a Changemaker and a Connector of people. As an event strategizer, she is collaborates to bring about social change through inclusion.

Nothing she says, compares to seeing the freedom people feel when they truly connect with other people, be it when speaking to one or to many, especially when speaking in another language. Confidence is the key to connection and women who embrace their natural ability to communicate, who are heart-led leaders have the greatest potential to influence change throughout the world. Never has there been a greater need for change, never have women had greater opportunities to influence, now is our time.
