    for a year I was practicing in privet , I made all the lessons and practiced well , later when r joined Toastmasters club, and delivered my uce breaker they were shocked I was much above then a beginner and the reason was :I used to turn the camera and speak , delete and shoot another vedioes , when it came to a prepared speech it was as easy as drinking water 😂

    Thank you Sir , you are indeed moving people to action
    and one day you will share my story in one of your videos I will be good example just like Kalyan 😎

    I wrote two articles about projects management , I made one video in YouTube and I joined Toastmasters I am on the right path , thanks to you

    Thanks Conor for the possibility sharing your great know-how in cummunicating.
    When I started the course I didn’t expect that it is just a view rules to consider to bring it to the point. You’re right, regulary training and practice is essential for success in communication.

    1. Thank you! Keep on switching on that webcam 😉

    Thank you so much for this course. I’m a frequent public speaker but still lacking a bit of confidence and polish that I feel holds me back. I have done many leadership courses, careers coaching, public speaking classes and even have an MBA at one of the UK’s top programmes. Yet, I found your course one of the best I’ve taken. It was straightforward, with concrete and specific advice, tailored to the tone of the contemporary professional environment. The use of the webcam as a learning tool is also useful and innovative. It’s hard to pinpoint why I found the content of this course so much different and better than other, similar courses, but it really resonated with me. Thank you very much for putting it together. I have recommended it to friends!

  5. Salam Alaikum; (it means: Peace on you)
    Thank you Mr Conor for your caring for us and for whose learning english, you fire a great will on me, on everyone who wants to be better.
    your advice is not just words, it gave me a power, a wish, an ambition …….. so one day, I will have to speak an academic english.
    Thank you Mr Conor,
    waiting for your advice.

    Thank you Conor.. You are giving right inputs at right quantity. Your points are highly practical and helpful. I admit the fact that your lessons made some change in very short time even without practicing the way you want.

  17. Dear Conor,
    The10 week course was interesting, challenging and the exercises constructively crafted. The breath of material covered should prove helpful
    in providing a framework for individuals to build on their own knowledge and experiences as well continue their learning as they improve their communication skills.
    The overall programme was excellent and the resource references valuable.

    Thank you.

I will give my Icebreaker speech at the toastmasters club on Thrusday and I will send it to you!! :). Look forward to the next course!!

    I salute Mr. Conor. I am really thankful for your help through the 10 week public speaking course. This course has helped me improve my speaking and confidence though I have not finished practising the whole batch of the course due to tight working schedule. But I am following your advice. I read your notice, I listen you and other clips, and practise for at least three minutes to one hour if there is ample time for me.Moreover, I am trying to see myself the kind of a person want to be in ten years from now.

    1. Thank you for your feedback James. It is a worthwhile path. It took me 10 years before I actually look at my videos and think “wow, I sound like I know what I am talking about!” 😉

  21. Thank you Conor, for your guidance through this 10 week journey. I was not able to do all the assignments but I eventually will. You see, I am trying to make some of your suggestions a habit, a way of life, not just something I do now and never do again. God bless.

    1. Thank you for the feedback – and I love the idea of working these actions into regular habits. One brilliant day won’t make you a success; many, many good average days will bring you success 😉

    Hi Conor. Thank you for being an offering to us pouring your knowladge in us. The course has change my the way I prepare my speech and the way I deliver it. Thank you Sir. May God continue to increase you

    1. Thank you Sibusiso 😉

    I hardly have any opportunity to deliver presentations to an audience but I wanted to use the course help me present arguments in team meetings or the phone i.e. my everyday communication skills. For my objectives, the course was useful but perhaps of limited value.

    1. Thank you. I understand. I will think about how I can make the objective of the course more explicit on the initial “sales” page so that the expectations are much clearer.

What do you think? Let me know you were here ;-)
