Jan Terkelsen has been an executive coach, consultant and facilitator in corporate Australia for more than 18 years and understands what it takes to create sustainable change in one’s life.

Jan is an experienced personality profiler and behavioral change specialist, who has a deep interest and track record in assisting people with a preference for introversion.
