I was fortunate enough to take Roy's Public Speaking 101 class when it was offered at my firm this past year. I have always considered myself a confident and successful public speaker but wanted to take the course because there is always room to improve.
Roy was able to show me that I was relying too much on my theatre background when speaking and not presenting as myself but as a character. Through his class, I was able to develop a stronger sense of self in my preparation and delivery, and overall become a more effective public speaker.
Roy has several tools in his teaching belt. The first is, of course, his ability to lead by example, being a powerful public speaker himself. The second is his ability to provide constructive feedback while still recognizing the strengths in a presentation. Lastly, and most importantly, Roy provides the tools to track improvement throughout the duration of his program so that each student can see the progress that they make.
Thank you for giving me the confidence to recognize my areas of opportunity and change my presentation style for the better.
