Testimonials for Tan Jose

“Tanya and Jo were absolutely outstanding to work with. The provided incredibly detailed background work in the leadup to our event, as well as facilitating workshops with the participants to take them through the creative process."


 “They understood our brief very well, and devised funny and clever routines to work with our theme. For our keynote presentations they created an upbeat atmosphere and light relief, enabling the audience to then focus on the important product initiatives we were announcing."
IBM Software


 “Not only did Tan Jose entertain us, we laughed and laughed til the face hurt. And we loved it. It took the girls all of 10 seconds to build rapport with the entire room and the day flowed from there. As a group, and tired one at that, we were at the end of a very long week where our brains were full and our energy spent. Tan Jose provided just the right combination of laughter, motivation and participation that ended our week on a high. Perfect, thank you."
