This course is exactly what I needed at this time in my life. In God’s strength and through the Holy Spirit I now have a psychological, down-to-earth approach of saying what needs to be said.

I really enjoyed this course and everything that it had to offer. It really taught me a lot about how to public speak more effectively. Being an English teacher, I teach lessons on how they can public speak and I will definitely use some of this material to teach them as well.

This is an excellent course which shows a simple & practical way to outline along with present a speech/talk. It will help me be a better presenter by looking at a speech as a talk with many people instead of a big presentation.
