Be Brilliant How to lead a Life of Influence

On Sale Now

Why this book – why now?

Business was simple; now it’s competitive. Clients were easy; now they’re demanding. Communication was straight forward; now it’s overwhelming. Resources were limitless; now they’re stretched. Employment was secure; now it’s uncertain.

Often the world feels like it’s all too much. It’s exhausting trying to work out ‘what to do’

We want to be successful. So we spend a fortune on stuff, on shit, that we think will make us ‘better’ — that will help us achieve more, or simply ‘fix us’. But all it does is fuel feelings of loneliness, depression, undue stress, and further disconnection.

The thing is, that we are all like diamonds with lots of facets and flaws. And it takes artistry on ourselves to bring out our unique brightness. We are all rare gems designed to shine, created under enormous pressure.

‍We all have to get better at being ourselves. The world is asking us to be extraordinary, this is our calling.

Are you ready to embrace the challenge?

I find myself coming back to this book regularly to use as a compass for developing my network. This book is not about the generic skill of networking per se but rather about the strategic activity of building a powerful network around you that will facilitate and accelerate success – both personal and professional. Janine Garner has laid out a step by step process to make it easy to leverage the power of connection. The book is packed with checklists, models and frameworks that help the reader to implement the great ideas and concepts presented in this wonderful book. There are few books which are genuinely relevant for EVERYONE. This is one of those books.

Who I Work With

What My Clients Say

I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU Janine for sharing your insights and wisdom on the power of working together, the need to drive influential leadership and the importance of having a balanced lifestyle. I have received amazing feedback from so many involved in the workshops yesterday. Your energy, passion and determination is truly inspirational!

Event Marketing, Cisco Systems Australia

This year, we launched ‘Accelerate’, EY’s flagship program to accelerate the careers of our next generation female leaders. Janine was an integral part of the launch event. Her session on how to analyse and strategically build your personal support network was inspirational and of great value to our participants. Janine’s approach empowers women to be themselves and to find an authentic way of creating support and sponsorship to further their careers.She is an excellent speaker and facilitator and we received outstanding feedback on her session.

Oceania Leadership Development and Executive Coach, EY

Janine ran a comprehensive program for development of our top talent. Herapproach, and her personality, led to this being an extremely successful program to the extent that we have re-engaged her for a second and improved version this year. I would strongly recommend talking to Janine if you want to do something different when it comes to developing staff.

Vice President, Communications, Media and Entertainment Industry, Hewlett Packard Enterprise

Janine’s presentation did not disappoint. It was impossible not to share in her high energy and enthusiasm for her topic. Her material was insightful, thought provoking and inspiring. We received very positive feedback from our attendees, so we were very pleased. Janine and her staff were extremely easy to work with and we would book Janine again in the future.

Director of Marketing & Business Development, HLBMann Australasia

Janine is a truly wonderful facilitator and speaker. Her content is always cutting edge, modern and reflective of what is currently happening in business today. Janine brings a wonderful energy with everything she delivers. She truly has a great ability to flex and change her style to the area that she is working in, whether that’s one-on-one coaching, facilitating large workshops for senior attendees or large-scale speaker sessions for groups of corporates.

Head of Talent Development and Diversity APAC, CBRE

Janine is an amazing speaker, mentor and trainer. Not to mention a brilliant, best-selling author. She is a master at helping othersreach their full potential and companies achieve better results and do more through collaboration and thought leadership.Work with her if you can. You will be as inspired by who she is, what she knows and what she teaches as I am.

COO, The Impossible Institute

Janine is a passionate, inspirational and generous speaker, with a great ability to engage her audience. Her preparation and dedication to delivering specific and relevant content is very impressive, and was reflected in the audience’s rating of almost exclusively 5/5. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Janine both as a keynote speaker and workshop facilitator.

Director, ThinkTank Media, producer of The Corporate PA Summits

In the last quarter of 2017, after feeling a bit stuck I got in touch with Janine and engaged her as a coach/mentor over 3 sessions. I had been a long-time admirer of her work ethic and commercial smarts and I was not disappointed. Janine helped me crystalise my thinking, set me on a path of determined action, and did all of this with an “I’ve got your back” approach. And that was just at the first session!
She is very generous with her time, smarts and advice. My 2018 is set up for success because of three extremely high-quality conversations

International Speaker & Thought Leader

" If you are looking for someone to blow your audience away then look no further. Janine had our attendees totally captivated for every second of her 50-minute online presentation. Her energy and brilliance left us all wanting more but with some fantastic take homes to put in place to step into our own brilliance immediately. I would happily recommend Janine for any online speaking engagement - we all left energised and feeling positive in these crazy times - seriously impressed!"
