Testimonials

Merri’s Peer Presentation Group program…
“The opportunity to practice speaking consistently was very helpful because opportunities for public speaking are somewhat rare, and opportunities for feedback on the public speaking even more rare. It was also helpful to watch my peers speak and see what worked and what didn’t work.”
“It was helpful to be under the gun and to have to get creative with each topic. Most importantly, rehearsing and speaking was the invaluable practice that made the program worthwhile.”

“It is much more difficult to speak to your colleagues than to strangers. This challenge made for a very beneficial aspect of the program.”

“Each topic was generalized to be applicable to each presenter. There was a focus on a speaking competency or strategy to work on but the presentation topics could be tailored to your job duties. I was able to create and rehearse presentations that I can use in the future.”
“Getting up in front of the group on a somewhat regular basis was very helpful. Practice gets results.”
“I have techniques, and a sense of structure now that I did not posses before going through PPG. The challenge now is to be consistently effective in communicating a message. I am confident that I can do this, but only time will tell if that turns out to be the case.”
