"Learning to be comfortable as the center of attention has improved my business confidence in both small gatherings and in front of groups. But what really changed my speaking skills for the better was learning to think on my feet by telling stories, asking questions, and “stringing these beads together” to make interesting presentations."

"I want to thank you for teaching me to challenge and overcome my fears through the “Stage Fright/Natural Presence” class and then practicing what I learned with the follow-up session, “Telling Stories/Sharing Wisdom.” Not only were these two classes valuable to my career because they gave me new insight into how I function and respond when called upon to speak, they validated perceptions about myself ..."
