Public speaking coach

“Herman is an incredible and effective public speaking coach. I work in finance / corporate environment and was looking to improve on my presentation skills and how to manage my nerves while public speaking. 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.”
