Everyone appreciated the exercises and the chance to practice in a very safe and fun way. We all are better, more confident speakers as a result of your session.

As you can see [from your evaluations], you almost went off the charts! As a planner and trainer, I was so pleased to see a full room with an audience so thoroughly engrossed in your presentation. The exercises were especially useful, and I was especially proud of how well our intern shined during his brief speech. Public speaking can so easily give people confidence. You made it seem natural and even easy, and you truly conveyed how powerful the spoken word can be.
