Janine Kurnoff is founder and chief innovation officer at
The Presentation Company
. She helps some of the world's top brands such as Facebook, Salesforce, MetLife, and Hewlett Packard communicate strategically through data-driven storytelling. Janine has devoted her life to teaching storytelling and data visualization because she believes that these skills are the single greatest way to amplify the meaning and impact of your facts and figures. Storytelling, done right, is nothing short of a career game-changer. Janine and her business partner (and sister!) Lee Lazarus, founded The Presentation Company nearly two decades ago to let teams get practical, hands-on training using storytelling techniques and tools. From sales to engineering, Janine's methodology helps people organize, visualize, and present their ideas in a way that is captivating, easy-to-process, and results-driven. Prior to founding The Presentation Company, Janine worked for Yahoo! Inc. in sales training and, later, as an on-camera webcast host interviewing some of Silicon Valley's top CEOs, market strategists and Hollywood celebrities. In her spare time, she enjoys The Bar Method, cooking, traveling and spending time with her husband and three children in Portland, Oregon.
