Herman makes truthful contact with full attention. I saw and experienced that in his open view, facial expressions, enthousiasme and honest behaviour. Real and authentic are the words that come to my mind. He teaches language and movement exercises in a playful way with a lot of humor. He works with the participants on a conscious and subconscious level.

We use the skill of public speaking for most things, negations, asking for help, resolving conflicts, to clarify or share information. Great public speakers are more liked, get payed more and are even more likely to get a promotion.
With a group of lawyers we followed Herman’s public speaking training. It was interesting to observe how some felt uncomfortable at start. As the training progressed everyone got noticeably more comfortable. We laughed a lot at different ways Herman showed us how you can pronounce a word or read out loud. It was fascinating to see how changing your tone completely changes the impression someone leaves behind. Very instructive and practical for us lawyers.
