I hired Chris to share the Gospel at an outreach event where we had 100 students. Chris did a great job sharing Jesus and using illustrations and stories to connect with our students. Christ has a good understanding of youth culture and how to speak truth to teens.
Oumar is a member of our Toastmasters club. I have attended meetings where Oumar was one of the featured speakers. His speeches were always well organized and he has a good speaking voice.
The Owner Mariah was fun and personable and gave our daughter Molly a life changing experience. Molly loved going to class and talked about what they learned for weeks and weeks. It was a great value and brought a sense of curiosity and extrovertedness to our otherwise shy little girl. The one class I was able to watch was full of fun and physically engaging learning tasks that blended creative expression, memorization, and following instruction. We will be looking for future classes at our community center.
I just began work today with Cathy. She is such a pleasure to speak with. She is clearly innovative and her mind is working the entire time you speak to try to figure out solutions to your career issues. She asks very pertinent questions and has ideas and answers to help clear away some of the ambiguity surrounding the "correct" path to take. I look forward to speaking with her again next week after I complete my "homework" she gave me. Highly recommend Cathy as a career coach!
Contagious Connections is a wonderful service. The presenter, Cassie Breeggemann, was articulate, passionate and she knew what she was talking about. She established herself as a knowledgeable individual right-off-the-bat and I knew I could trust what she was saying and ask questions. Cassie went into detail on areas that a lot of us in the audience already knew about speaking and presenting, but not to that level of effectiveness. For instance, the importance of eye contact, it's something we all know about but don't necessarily know how to do well. Towards the end of her presentation, Cassie had everyone in the audience participate in an exercise (one that she'd set up the minute she got there by handing out note cards and collecting responses). We each took a card at random, got up in front of the classroom, and presented on the topic all while making eye contact of about 5 seconds with 3 or 4 people. It was tricky, but definitely a useful experience. She did a similar exercise on body language which was enjoyable as well. Cassie's service was fun, interactive and definitely beneficial. I'm now more critical of how I present and I know what to focus on. Her services definitely helped me with my university presentation. I got lots of compliments on how calmly and professionally I delivered my information. Contagious Connections is a refreshing take on how to build your skills professionally. Definitely worthwhile!
She did a great job with my resume! It looks amazing. She also gave me great tips for interviewing. I would recommend her to anyone!
