I’ve been to a few public speaking lessons but this one with Andy offered something new. The one key takeaway for me was how to step away from discomfort. Imagine I am on stage and performing for others - it has taken away the feeling that I am being personally assessed over every second. Which lightens the pressure I feel enormously. Already planning on other lessons with Andy - as we only had time for a few tips. He has so many more!
Your course was fantastic and all of your hints and tips for performing the speech as well as writing it meant I managed to successfully present an introduction speech at my work’s annual awards ceremony last October.
I just wanted to say Thank You for being such a wonderful tutor over the past ten weeks. I enjoyed the course and got a lot out of it, and that was thanks to you. You were so encouraging to everyone, and that made a really good class atmosphere.
