Here's what others have to say about Speak Up

Ben Franklin was once asked... "Of all your skills, and all your wordly possessions, what do you consider to be most important?" He replied..." The most important of all is my ability to communicate. I could lose everything else but as long as I had the ability to communicate, I could gain them all back."
(A few hours invested in your ability to communicate will pay dividends for the rest of your life.)

"I used to be scared stiff every time I had to make a sales presentation. I'm still scared, but now that I know some basic skills, I'm a lot more effective and my income is actually going up..." J.L. (Winnipeg)

"After going through the workshop I realise how boring my speeches have been. The vocal variety section alone has made such a difference I'm starting to get compliments instead of complaints!" W.D. (Regina)

I wish I'd done this sooner.
Your whole package costs less than taking my family to dinner at Burger King. You'll get a kick out of this, I filled out your chart and found out that one of the things that was causing me the most stress was taking the kids to Burger King!... S.W. (Winnipeg)
