“The instructor was knowledgeable and his delivery was excellent.”

“I really enjoyed it. You provided a lot of information that was new to me, and practical. It also helped with a small piece I had to deliver on Wednesday for a work teleconference.”

“Thank you for running this course, I gained some really good insights on structuring your presentation & delivering a key icebreaker message. I would like to take you up on the course notes offer, so please shoot these through. I just started listening to Bach, Mozart and Pachobel's Canon! Great tip! ps: I'm very passionate about inspiring others to be comfortable within themselves through Improv, so I really appreciated practicing the icebreaker exercise & your feedback.”
