Participant Feedback
"I learned to be more focused, clear and concise in my messages, slides and presentations."
"The instant feedback was helpful. Bridging techniques and how to tackle questions raised by audiences [were] very impressive."
"I actually preferred the virtual training format as I can participate from my workplace. I felt more relaxed and found it easier to speak out than in a classroom session."
"I loved the breakout room sessions where we had opportunity to practice and Anthony could share feedback on the spot more personally."
