March 11, 2023
Great time I had. It was so leveraging. Thanks for the exposure to what it takes to be a good public speaker!!!
December 29, 2022
Every communicator should take this course no matter the area of specialization. Tj teaches so well such that you could even become not just an excellent presenter but a good writer later on. I however kept looking for the discussion section. It would be better if there’s a room or group or community for those taking the course where ideas could be shared and questions could be asked and answered instantly before the next session. Frankly speaking, I have enjoyed every bit of this course.
December 18, 2022
This course superb. I enjoyed every bit of it. The interesting part is the regular updating of the course and student learning initiative. I will recommend to anyone who wants to learn public speaking at any level. Thank you

January 17, 2022
Every piece so far has been very clear and made a lot of sense. The instruction to video yourself has been very enlightening for me, since I tend to never do that.
January 10, 2022
So far it feels right on the subject. I need to follow the instructions and I think, this will work for me.
November 22, 2021
This course is quite good. It does not provide any golden solution and rather recall all the basic simple rules one should stick too in order to succeed. It is a true that basic root of failure is not lack of skills. It is aversion to practicing until you are done.
September 28, 2021
its a very good course. I love the structure, that it is split into small presentations so it is easy to keep being focused. Also the key points are repeated a lot of times so it is really memorable. It's easy to believe that your advice work because you show your key points while presenting. really great course. thank you.
September 20, 2021
The course is really nice. Covers all major things. One learning is Speak, record and review and practice every day. Thats a good message from the author.
