B.A. (Speech Language and Hearing Sciences) Summa Cum Laude
Your voice program has helped me tremendously, and in unexpected ways. I’ve been much more engaged with people, and continuously create more of a collaborative team environment. I deal better with conflict, and make my points in a discussion more emphatically.
Taking time to breathe properly has been at the core of it all, and with your training, it has been much easier to master. So thank you again. Your class had a very positive and lasting effect.
I had a meeting with our consultants last week, including one who had been quite critical about my voice. I told her about the work we were doing. She said she has heard a difference and was really pleased with my progress. That alone is worth the money for the lessons. So thanks!!
You are one of those rare people with a real gift for teaching: the kind of coach who leaves a lasting imprint on their students that extends far beyond the sphere of the subject taught. I look forward to the continued unfolding of our journey.
No one can ever question about the quality of service you provide. You did a superb job and are the most professional trainer I have ever met. Words can not describe how I feel, so I’ll just say I love this training and thank you!
