Sandra and Telling Stories participants applaud a story.
“I had to speak in front of about 30 people that were very high ranking in my company and I was applauded. I went around the room prior to speaking and shook hands with each person which helped me to connect with each one of them. That helped me out greatly in my speaking. I feel so wonderful about the experience now and feel like I can move on to do more things. Thanks!!! ”

“Sandra, please accept my joy and excitement “the day after“ your weekend Turning stage fright into Dynamic Presence workshop. It was everything I was looking for and more. You have found a way to make it possible for me to find and be with the power that I have. Part way through the workshop I began to feel a presence or strength in my upper abdomen that is still with me. It's solid like a rod or column of a building that supports me, but also has a pure energy quality to it. This presence will be a constant reminder that I can and do connect with others in powerful ways.”
