The ambiance of the class and the instructor is calming and engaging. At first naturally you are nervous about speaking in front of people you don’t know, you are unsure if your instructor will be patient with you. As soon as you enter the class and through out the day he is patient, he was direct, he will allow you to practice repeatedly until you get it right. No mistake is a mistake without practice. I really enjoyed this class, and I will be back for more practice on my journey to public speaking. This was by far the best class I paid for.
A friend of my son recommended this class. I felt I needed to work on my public speaking. The class was outstanding! It exceeded my expectations! Herman is a very knowledgeable and passionate instructor. He kept us engaged and gave us great strategies and feedback. I highly recommend this class!
Herman gave very concrete feedback to improve my public speaking skills and overall confidence. The class was a safe environment to practice. I learned so much in one day and really encourage anyone else who wants to gain confidence in general or with public speaking to take this course!
This was one of the best classes I've ever taken for professional development. Herman is a superb teacher. He created a really intimate workshop environment, a safe and encouraging space for anxious public speakers to practice and learn. I walked away with really tangible feedback and techniques I'll be able to use. I highly recommend both for people who are looking to get more comfortable with public speaking and overcome anxiety and more seasoned speakers looking to be more charismatic and engaging.
What a helpful one-day class Herman teaches. I get on a lot of video calls at work and took this class to manage the nerves I experience on these calls. Herman shared a number of indelible tips for focusing the mind and your perspective on the present instead of leaning into imagined anxieties. My cohort was awesome and Herman kept us engaged throughout with his animation and spirit. Thank you!
After seeing reviews and reading about situations similar to mine, I knew I had to attend this class. The warm atmosphere was felt almost immediately upon entering, and the progression I feel I've obtained is top tier. Not only was Herman able to identify issues I've had with public speaking, he was able to encourage me with helpful tips to work through what I thought was a serious issue. I can honestly say I feel more confident with my speaking, and others in the class helped me by giving pointers on where I can improve. I would 100% recommend this course for anyone having doubts about public speaking, or just to improve their public speaking capabilities.
I have experienced fear and trembling every time I have had to deliver an academic lecture. Herman’s Public Speaking NYC seminar changed all that. I was one of five participants in the seminar – a good size group for getting a sense of other people’s experience but still small enough for individual attention from our leader. Herman’s presentation addressed the psychological underpinnings of fear of speaking and was followed by practical exercises where each member stood up in front of the group to practice each new skill. The last exercise was to demonstrate to ourselves and the group that we had overcome our stage fright. We not only learned to be calm and composed while speaking before a group – Herman made it fun. Highly recommended!
Herman, thank you so much for your time. What you taught me has completely changed my perspective on public speaking and you have given me the tools to succeed. Thank you again and I look forward to working with you again in the future!
Herman’s speech method is probably the most effective one I have experienced. The full day workshop is meticulously structured into challenging yet fun exercises. I will be taking this class again to hone my skills!
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.
