From a recent participant…
I wanted to thank you for your time yesterday . You overcame my reservations immediately and proceeded to work with a fairly unruly bunch to adapt to our skill and interest level. You are quite talented and I learned a number of things that I will be able to apply in a number of contexts.


This class is top notch! The instructor was very experienced and provided me with lots of good tips I can use on all my presentations. Definitely worth while.
