“It was such a pleasure working with Janet Eastwood. Her executive coaching still sits in the back of my mind as I go into meetings. I have done a lot of mentoring myself – but being on the other side of the table when Janet was coaching me on a career transition was a real eye-opener.
Her research and preparation for meetings was deep and she’s great with follow-up support. I walked away from my coaching sessions with pages of notes and a great guide to success.
I’d recommend her to anyone who has done work on their career path but is unsure about what to do next. It’s a bit like What Not To Wear, for your career.”

“Janet, thank you for being such a wonderful business coach. You helped me clarify my target audience and gain insight into what drives them. You also helped me see how I could combine the two business ideas that I had been considering into one viable offering.
Your marketing expertise was invaluable in helping me brainstorm products and services that would interest my clients. You came up with brilliant ideas faster than I could scribble them down!
I really appreciated your suggestions for articles, websites and courses that you thought might be of interest. You also gave me very insightful feedback on the materials I was creating and championed each win along the way.
I always looked forward to our meetings… to your warmth, caring and professionalism and to the structured yet relaxed atmosphere in which we always made progress. I would recommend you highly and hope we will have a chance to work together again in the very near future!”

“Janet Eastwood was the perfect coach for me. I was a senior leader more used to providing guidance than seeking it. Janet helped me to quickly identify and articulate what I needed for my career and kept me focused and motivated.
Her ability to zero in on the issues positioned me to take advantage of some immediate key opportunities allowing me to check off some of my line items ahead of schedule. She was tough, accepting no excuses and together we developed real solutions on how to get to my end goal.
I would recommend Janet to anyone who is interested in including a strategic, thoughtful, intelligent and solutions-oriented person to their support roster.”

“My Two Red Chairs Career Spa experience was a 10 out of 10! It met all my expectations, allowed me to think about myself and only myself for a full day and gave me the tools and the confidence to move in the direction that I was thinking about.
Trying to define what your life/career goals are can be difficult at times. Janet has a well-rounded, honest and gentle approach that gives you the opportunity to grow and learn about yourself, your life and your career. The Career Spa allowed me to look at where I was, what I wanted and to create a plan of action to get there. It helped me believe in myself and gave me the courage to go out and get what I want.
The spa break in the middle of the day was really beneficial because you’re doing so much soul searching and reflecting. It gives you a nice chance to relax and just breathe. I really think that even if you’re in the perfect job, the Career Spa is a great way to realign with yourself or just check in and see if you’re on track… emotionally, physically and intellectually!”
“Janet Eastwood’s seminar, Leading the Future 3.0: Executive Strategies for the Digital Age is the most valuable executive training I have ever had the pleasure of participating in.
Janet identified the seven essentials of leadership success in today’s economy and seamlessly brought us through each segment, using relevant, real life examples. She provided a warm and friendly environment for us to freely share our obstacles and challenges. Developing a Personal Action Plan really motivated me to commit to changing the things I had been putting off in my career and my life.
Janet is an extremely effective educator who kept a roomful of leaders and executives engaged throughout the entire day. I would wholeheartedly recommend her seminar to anyone who wants to be at the top of his or her game in this ever-changing digital era.”

“I wanted to thank you again for the seminar that you provided. It was truly one of the most rewarding workshops that I have ever attended. What you said was not only extremely helpful, but really resonated in both my work and home life, which is just what I needed. Thanks for the inspiration!”
“I first became aware that Janet Eastwood was involved in executive coaching when I attended a Canadian Women in Communications Gala, where Janet received the “Mentor of the Year” Award. After hearing her acceptance speech, I knew that I wanted to contact her and discuss the possibility of working with her as a coach.
Janet’s significant background in the broadcasting industry gave her a unique depth of knowledge applicable to my circumstances. She was candid, warm and – most importantly to me – practical.
Like everyone else in this industry, time is my most precious commodity. I wanted an executive coach who would give me solid and effective guidance that I would truly use on a day-to-day basis. I wanted a real and tangible return for my time and money. That is exactly what I have received from Janet Eastwood.”

“Janet’s unique blend of skills makes her an extraordinary leader and coach. Her intuition, perception and empathy make it easy for her to identify and understand obstacles to personal and career growth; while her practical and positive approach to life, solid business acumen, and her own experience as an executive make her a great, results-oriented problem solver.
Change can be overwhelming, and Janet has given me a game plan made up of small, manageable steps. She has helped me to identify certain goals and, best of all, she has made me realize that they are well within my reach. I know that Janet will be right there to advise, inspire and motivate me until I get there.
I would encourage anyone who feels lost to pull up a Red Chair with Janet!”
