“My presentation designs and skills improved 10x in just two days. Before I used to speak quickly and sound monotonous. With this training, I learned to speak slower and clearer, to vary my pace, and to communicate well with people.
My confidence levels have increased drastically, and I actually now look forward to preparing and delivering presentations. Karel’s approach to the training was refreshing and honest. She did a fantastic job and I can’t wait to work with her again.”
