Of participants would recommend the training session to their colleagues
The Public Speaking School did a fantastic job in offering very useful advice to our speakers. Not only were they sharp in identifying key areas for improvement, they were respectful and gave considerate feedback. Thanks to their expertise and dedication, our speakers delivered very well on that day. I would definitely like to work with The Public Speaking School again.
WWF has had the pleasure of working with The Public Speaking School through three TEDxWWF events in Singapore, Brussels and in Abu Dhabi. Laura Penn coached the speakers at these events, training and guiding them to deliver quality ‘performances’ – and that was essentially the difference between just a good event and a great one! Kudos to Laura for helping our speakers reach new heights! We look forward to working with The Public Speaking School again for TEDxWWF and other opportunities.
The Public Speaking School has been immensely helpful to many members of IUCN’s staff in helping them get their messages across in an effective way. They have also provided advice to me in my regular speech-making responsibilities and I, as well as my colleagues, greatly appreciate their talents. We will continue to be helped and inspired by them
Laura Penn, of The Public Speaking School is a great “public speaking” trainer. With her positive energy she managed a full day workshop with a large audience, giving useful and actionable tips to every participant. The day was interactive with a good mix of theory and practice and everyone wished to have had more time with her! She also coached a few participants before their presentations, giving honest and constructive feedback. Thanks to Laura’s expertise, our speakers improved and delivered very good presentations. I really hope to work with her and The Public Speaking School again.
I want to thank The Public Speaking School for the recent workshop in Chennai, India. Since the training, I have held three public speeches in front of the media and for around 900 delegates of a Federal Congress. This workshop was a key reason for why I can say that these speeches were very successful, I felt good on my feet and walking on stage, I smiled, I paused and I used humor. It was such great training!
The energy that I felt when I walked into the room at the end of the Master Class (she did not participate in the class, but offered it to her staff) was amazing! The feedback was really positive and receiving some “thank you tears” says a thousand words. So well done. Thank you!
Talented, enthusiastic, highly-skilled, incisive, creative etc…These are among many other compliments collected from a group of 12 professionals who attended Dr. Laura Penn’s Master Class . I greatly admire her skill set and professionalism when it comes to working with a variety of demographic groups. Not only do we go home with pockets full of very useful tips from Dr. Penn about public speaking, but she also makes us realize how small gestures can make a big difference.
