The best way I can describe Liz Hodge is as my “Go-To” for overcoming my biggest vocal challenges, writing compelling business speeches that sound like they should be on TED, and making a difference for my leadership team. As the CEO of Promote Her Business, my business speeches and vocal communication significantly affect my ability to get leads, opt-ins, and to have people want to follow-up with our membership and advanced networking programs. Liz has helped me transform my voice into something I like to hear, am proud of, and have confidence will bring me and PHB more business. In addition, as President of our SV Chapter, I take very seriously who educates my leadership team -- of over 10 people -- on the best practices in speaking and vocalizing today. Liz did such a great job giving a mini group workshop to the women entrepreneurs and male allies on our team. And most impressively, Liz’ teaching is so practical that it lives on … my leaders are still referring to what Liz taught us before they speak in front of the community. Josephine “Jos” Hanan, Founder/CEO, Promote Her Business
I have had the privilege of working with Summer Simonton for many years and have always known her to be extremely proficient at processing people. She is able to guide you to break through your blocks to public speaking or whatever issue you are dealing with. I have known few coaches that have her ability to process people through any given situation. I highly recommend that you give yourself the gift of working with Summer! Paula Joy MacNab
I enjoyed taking the communication classes with Arjun. He worked with me to identify my strengths and weakness. He tailored the course accordingly. I would highly recommend him to anyone who would like to improve their public speaking skills.
I can't say enough about Mr. Cho and Best Impressions. I always felt I was a strong public speaker so when I was asked to reach out to Best Impressions, I was a bit skeptical to say the least. However, I was quite surprised at Mr. Cho's attention to detail and his ability to fine tune my public speaking skills. Confidence was never an issue with me but I must say that it is at an all time high after sitting down and learning from Mr. Cho. I cannot say enough about how Best Impressions has made me a better speaker today. Thank you Best Impressions.
My daughter had a great time working with Melissa. Here is her review: Melissa was so helpful. She helped me gain confidence speaking at my state and national conferences and she helped me with my interview skills. She has great strategies to improve public speaking skills. For interview skills we would role play and practice questions. She came prepared with questions specific to my field, and it was always fun to work with her. Melissa always on time and prepared to work with me. If I had to review my public speaking or interview skills I would definitely work with Melissa again.
Omg Pastor Ama was absolutely amazing!!! We had a small ceremony in the Chapel of Our Lady in Presidio and she performed such a beautiful ceremony. From the moment she got there till the end of the ceremony she handled everything perfectly and made sure our Wedding went as smooth as possible. A wedding day is something you will remember forever and the memory she has given my fiancé and I as well as our families will definitely be unforgettable. If you need someone who will take the time out to understand you, accommodate to your dreams of your wedding day and speak so beautifully then she’s the one to go to!!! I’m so grateful to have found her because I can’t say enough how wonderful she made our special day! And she throws in a few laughs too that makes you feel even more better especially when all the nerves are kicking in as you stand up in front of everyone. Thank you again Pastor Ama for all you kind words, the laughs, and creating a memorable day that captured all my dreams! :)
There's no doubt that Linda is an excellent English teacher. She's very flexible and adjusts the lessons to your special needs and wishes. She knows exactly how to personalize the lesson in order for you to improve quickly. She's flexible, dedicated and passionate. She doesn't only provide efficient English courses, but also makes them funny, entertaining and very engaging. As an individual, Linda is very attentive, smart and friendly. She's always very helpful and provides you with good advices if you are new in town. She loves teaching and that increases the quality of the service she provides and the relationship she develops with her students. I consider myself lucky for having met Linda. I've improved my pronunciation skills in a short time and greatly increased my self-confidence and speaking skills. I would fully recommend her to anyone who wants to learn English in a stimulating and exciting way.
Working with Angela has been a very constructive experience. She's a visionary, with the perfect blend of knowledge and presentation skills. This makes her a versatile trainer and a talented Speaker, who loves to engage her audience with real life scenarios and examples making sure her message is loud and clear. Ive always seen her take pains to respond to questions, even if she needs to research and then email her response, ensuring no attendee is left without a complete answer. She is an Ideal Educator ! She is well versed in the areas of Project Management, Computer System Validation, 21 CFR and the general regulatory arena. Personally, Ms. Bazigos is also an extremely hardworking, dedicated and smart professional.

I started out with just a couple of in-person sessions. I liked the custom program that included stretches and low-impact strength training. Playlists were fun to dance to also, and it didn't feel like working out. Then I rolled into the 12 Week online program. The app is super easy to use and convenient. Mirella responds to my every question quickly and tweaks my plan for me, as needed. Thanks for helping me get back on track and pushing me when I needed some extra motivation ;)
