What Makes Us Different

  • Real world practice
    Many public speaking & leadership training offerings are mostly lecture with very little practical exercises to help you absorb the skills. Passive learning never works. We take the opposite approach. You get the knowledge and expertise you need and then you practice – there is no better way to learn than by doing.
  • Small class sizes
    Many other training organizations offer large class sizes of nearly 100 students. Our small class sizes makes for the best learning outcome for our students. You will benefit from one on one training with our expert trainers. This individual attention and focus is not available in our competition.
