Jana Stanfield, CSP

"I have an extensive background in psychotherapy," motivational performer Jana Stanfield says with a wink, "as a client." Combining her background as a television reporter with her talent as a songwriter, musician and humorist, Jana is a one-of-a-kind keynote speaker. She’s shared stages with stars ranging from Kenny Loggins to The Dixie Chicks and received standing ovations on world-famous stages from Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry, all the way to New York’s Carnegie Hall.

She delivers the much-needed gift of learning through laughter and music, encouraging, appreciating and energizing her audiences. Known as "The Queen of Heavy Mental," Jana describes her music as "psychotherapy you can dance to." With songs like, "I’m Not Lost, I’m Exploring," "Woman of 33 (and up!)," "Nothin’ I Can Do About It Now," and "If I Were Brave," Jana’s music reaches into the hearts of women and gives them a psychic boost – all of the benefits of Prozac without the water retention!

When Jana couldn’t get a record company to support her dream of making "music with meaning" she did the next best thing. She started her own record company, known today as Relatively Famous Records. The business she started on her dining room table is now one of the most successful businesses of its kind.

Jana is probably one of the most personable speakers you will ever meet and is a meeting planner’s total partner in maximizing and leveraging their event. Upbeat and unforgettable, Jana’s wisdom, humor and memorable music will send participants back to their homes and workplaces refreshed, renewed, and recommitted.

Praise

"I could not have scripted Jana's keynote any better for our group. She had people up and moving and energized first thing in the morning, which is not easy. She helped set an extremely positive tone for the rest of our conference. Jana has an innate ability to connect with her audience. We appreciated the time she spent getting to know our group the evening before, which allowed her to make her delivery even more personal and extremely well-received. Jana was certainly among the highlights for our group, and everyone became a fan, but more importantly felt like they'd gained a friend in Jana. It takes a remarkable and gifted speaker to be able to have people laughing, singing and embracing within 45 minutes.  I have been planning events for years, and Jana connected to this group better than anyone I've ever worked with previously." -- Holly Cline, Amoena USA Corporation, Kennesaw, GA
