It was a really interesting session. I never thought of how important being objective is rather than being subjective. In other words making sure you have all the facts to back yourself up. Very helpful in businesses.

A fun experience
Darlene Fitz, Obstetrics nurse
Very good presentation, everyone actively participated. No one was made to feel uneasy. Improvements in regards to public speaking were seen by all. If participants had any bad habits in regards to stance or overuse of filler words, it was pointed out. Keep up the good work.
Casseline Rosello, Le Garage & co
It was fun and friendly, Geoff was a good example. Good speech to give general advice. Fun random topics given by the app. However too little time for deep feedback.
Robert, Robert J. Sands Consulting, Inc.
Very helpful and well structured. Geoff is a skilled thinker, a good coordinator and a great facilitator. He's someone who truly knows how to help people develop the important soft skills necessary for growth and development. This workshop got me just enough out of my comfort zone, yet close enough for me to feel great and expand my abilities. I really enjoyed it!
Xavier de Lisle
