Reviewed by Anonymous on 10/22/2017
This class was misleading. I thought it would involve practicing public speaking. Hard to do when it's just you and one other person in the class. It was not what I was expecting. More speech preparing than anything else. Go to Toastmasters

It was a really valuable experience. The instructor, Sam Valenti, is very professional and he knows perfectly how to help you loose the sense of fear when you have to speak in public; he gave me great formulas, should me the perfect steps to make and say a speech, gave me great ideas. I want to take all the courses related with this topic. Thanks to all the team. Claudia

Sam was great, really top-notch. Had a very good experience. Got a very good visceral explanation of the topic, would go to a follow up class if offered. Thanks.
