Personal development is an important part of business, you cannot change your outer world without first changing and addressing your inner dimension.

Janice started her business in May 2004 after a series of workplace redundancies. The first redundancy shook her, but she got straight back up and found another suitable job. After the second redundancy, Janice decided that it was her destiny to be a business owner, so she set up her own consultancy business, B Consultancy Ltd, providing mentoring, coaching and training. Janice is a qualified teacher, accredited coach, mentor and business advisor. In 2017 she set up an accredited Institute of Leadership and Management Training Centre.

Janice has a great deal of commercial experience and has set up and run many worthwhile projects under the B Consultancy Ltd umbrella. The project provides participants with essential tools to navigate their career, business and life.

In addition to one-to-one services, Janice undertakes a range of essential training and consultancy services with local authorities. This work includes supporting self-employed individuals and providing vital training to front line staff on how to manage people, and give them the advice that they need, with a caring and compassionate attitude so that people are not left feeling undervalued. The training that Janice delivers is accredited, so there is a methodological framework that she follows and many business owners that she works with want a total change of direction, and Janice coaches them through this practically.

Janice currently delivers mentoring and training to students at Newham College of Further Education, London Southbank University and Ravensbourne University.
