Private Online Public Speaking Coaching

“I booked a virtual private one-on-one session and I can say it is well worth the money. I’ve attended many corporate presentation and public speaking courses and this was by far the most effective. Herman made me feel very comfortable and gave very practical tips on how I could manage my nerves by visualizing my speech, changing my intonation and using pauses in between sentences etc. I feel inspired and confident after my session with him and am looking forward to applying his suggested techniques.”

“What a great experience working with Herman – the most helpful public speaking training I’ve had. He has different techniques that are unique to him. I picked up helpful pieces of info right out of the shoot. I’ve worked with him now in a group setting as well as one on one. I would recommend both. I have also recommended him to others at my company.”

“I wanted an extra confidence in my upcoming speaking engagement and booked Herman quickly for a one on one. I then had doubts about if it would help. But 10 minutes in to the session with Herman I had my answer – it had been a great decision to work with him. Within a few minutes he had established with me some clear things to work on that made an immediate difference. Immediate! And then we spent the rest of the two hours working through my story. His advice is practical and applicable. He is very easy to work with and feel comfortable with improving your own skills. I will go next to a group class as I think that this is a skill that can and should be worked on.”
