The best part of this course was getting to see ourselves present on video. I learned so much about my presentation habits that I otherwise wouldn't have realized without this course. The instructor kept the course paced out well, and the level of participation from other attendees was high. I would highly recommend to anyone who would like to improve their presentation skills but doesn't know where to start.

This seminar was incredibly useful to highlight the importance of speaking skills as well as where each person could improve. It was fun as well as helpful. Being able to record myself was nerve-wracking but useful to highlight what I can improve on. I am leaving with tools to help put together and present future presentations.
