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.
Going into taking this course I didn't know exactly what to expect, but soon found out how amazing public speaking can be. Rita has allowed me to unlock my full potential and understand my strengths and weaknesses. She has been helpful in every way imaginable and continues to impress me. She always comes with good vibes and positive energy, so even if you are not feeling well that day she is sure to pump you right up. One of the best qualities about her is that she will always go the extra yard to help you succeed such as always being flexible when changing meeting dates or even when I need to reach her through text, she always has an instant reply. I would also like to add that I have had other training in the category of public speaking and it doesn't compare at all to the work I have accomplished here. What's great about Rita is she allows you to feel comfortable with your speaking and improve it in your own custom way. Overall if you need public speaking skills or interested in this category I would highly suggest Rita over any online course or instructor.
Tomas is great to work with. I have been seeing him for speaking lessons. He is extremely perceptive -- getting to root of why I speak/gesture/act as I do, as opposed to simply relying on cookie-cutter suggestions. He will challenge you to go outside of your comfort zone, with positive results. He is very in-tune with his clients, has a good attitude, and is responsive to messages.
Justin is a true pro. Very valuable coaching in preparation for a business presentation I was giving. He asked good questions to understand the context of the situation and tailored his coaching to that specific opportunity. Great insights on the importance of the physical/mental connection needed to help make a successful speech. Always on time. I highly recommend Justin to any interested in improving their public speaking skills.
I've engaged Brian as a Public Speaking and Image consultant. If you choose to engage Brian, first of all, prepare to have fun. His energy is contagious and his style of coaching is unique. He has made me a more confident speaker and has helped me to develop a strong sense of self-awareness which has helped me to improve everything about me; not only my speaking skills, but also my presence and image. His voice is the greatest Ive ever heard and he is an absolute pleasure to work with! I highly recommend his services!
I had a fantastic experience with Jess!! I communicated a custom plan I wanted to execute on for career/profesisonal development in the areas of public speaking and giving presentations. He created educational content just for me, he held in-depth personal calls (before and after) the in-person custom training, and he has taken a personal interest & effort in my learning and growth. I consider him to be a great teacher and mentor... and now a good friend! He really knows what he is talking about and helped me work on things I really/truly needed help on. I feel so much more confident and prepared now for the work ahead ;) I couldn't recommend Jess more highly!!
I have worked with Braco over the past seven years. He was my instructor for a Dale Carnegie and Institute of Advance Human Performance master classes. I also benefited greatly from taking advantage of one on one consulting. Braco directly impacted my professional development with public speaking, leadership, and continually pushing the limits of my comfort zone. He has impacted my personal development with tools to form better habits and increased emotional intelligence. I have seen a return on investment with my counseling and coaching from Braco that has led to promotions, deep and lasting professional relationships, and being an effective leader in my organization. -Paul M.
I have been doing public speaking as part of my work for decades. However, recently, I had a major film shoot where I had to carry some of the video as well as provide the narration. I didn't think after all these years there would be much more I would need to learn. But turned out - I was very wrong. The quality of my work and ability to communicate was vastly improved and I thank Daphna enough - not only for her expertise but also for her patience.
Victoria, is quite a talent! My wife and I met with her for about 45 minutes and she presented me with a handout script for me to read out loud and then critique me over and over again until I improved somewhat, as it’s still a work in progress but I think she’s well worth the money.
I've been working with Imani for years now. She is very sweet and kind, but she also makes sure you are on track. She has helped me improve on my singing voice. I was always very shy, but now I have way more confidence. Not only when it comes to me speaking in public in front of a crowd, but also to be mindful of how to captivate a room. Imani is the real deal!
I attended Illuminata Global's public program in NYC in late 2014. Growing up as an extremely shy person, I was quite nervous and apprehensive about attending the presentation skills day training. I was so surprised that there is an actual technique and method to effectively speak to an audience!! I was given the skills to stay on topic, get my point across and not only that, target why I was so petrified to speak to a group! I can't begin to express how much this training has given me hope and confidence that I can speak to a group effectively with out wanting to cry, shake or run for the hills! Thank you Josh Jenner for a wonderful experience. Mr. Jenner's non-judgmental, calm approach to the most scariest things in my life has given me a lot of hope and confidence for my future career!
Very satisfied with coaching. Exactly what I needed to get "un-stuck."
Mary has a gift: she knows how to bring out the confidence and human voice in every one. Through her guidance and tailored instructions, I've seen transformations happen right before my eyes to my classmates and to myself. She goes beyond just organizing the information you need to deliver; most importantly she helps you connect with your audience so that both you as the speaker and your audience are engaged in the story. After taking public speaking with Mary, I also took an acting class with her. I am very shy and never thought I would be doing this, but she has a way of making every one feel like old friends with her and each other within minutes. She has changed my life for the better, and not just professionally. Highly recommended!
