As an International Consultant, Jan Miller draws from over 25 years working in the international market place as consultant, connector, delegation lead and trainer, presenting one of the top Pitching and Concept Development workshops in the world. From Guadalajara to Tehran, Cuba to Cannes, Hong Kong to Berlin, she continues to work with key industry players around the world to connect projects and talent. And as bands and solo artists, managers and labels in the music industry also have to consider export development, there was a natural crossover for Jan to adapt her workshop to the music industry almost a decade ago. She has taught several workshops across the 4 provinces and annually at the ECMA’s. As the architect of Strategic Partners, one of the world’s pre-eminent international co-production markets featuring Canadian talent, Jan served as its Director for 15 years. She knows the importance of presentation when looking for opportunities to travel across Canada and abroad. Starting out as a performer who travelled the world with her theatre shows, Jan knows what sets talent apart. She pulls out a story. How to prepare for the 1-2-1 in person and on Zoom. She champions gender parity and giving voice to underrepresented communities. Jan also served as the founding Chair of WIFT-Atlantic for 6 years, introducing the annual Women Making Waves conference and the much sought after WAVE Awards.
