Question from Cindy C.
Is this class geared for every day folks trying to improve their communication skills?
Question from Cindy C.
Is this class more listening or are you put on the spot?
Question from Cathy M.
I know you already answered about the price difference but I don’t understand. Student/entrepreneur or professional? Entrepreneurs are professionals, and if we’re taking your class we’re all students.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Cathy! The student can choose - there are no pre-requisites. The idea is to make the workshop more affordable by offering tiered pricing.

Is the Art of Conversation a one evening class? I'm not sure how useful one class would be, Are there follow up classes to practice the skill/tips one learns in the class?
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! The class is both tremendously fun and tremendously useful. This class is designed to help professionals at all levels improve your communication, listening and storytelling skills in a range of settings, from networking events to internal and external meetings. The class presents students with new tools, tricks, and techniques for rethinking conversation and gives them practice putting these techniques to work on real-world problems.

It was a nice workshop. But not quite what I expected. It felt a little juvenile. I thought it was going to be geared more towards professionals.

Andrew was great! He was informative and engaging - I enjoyed his class very much!
The Art of Conversation
Reviewed by Sandra K. on 2/6/2020
This was a very practical, "learn by doing" class. I loved that he proved or guided us to discover consequences/abilities for ourselves before explaining the results; we experienced for ourselves an improvement in focus or memory as a result of posture, awareness and focus. The class was small (7 people) and well structured, with a clear beginning, middle and end. It moved smoothly from theoretical structure to practice to wrapping up a summary of the most important takeaways to remember. The materials and content he prepared were all excellent quality. Andrew is clearly committed and passionate about helping people improve. He stayed late on his own time to make sure we got the full benefits of the course, when factors out of his control disrupted the start. He's extremely professional and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him if my company wants to bring in a coach or if my friends need help with interviews, networking or negotiation.
