Great use of time - the concepts taught in this course can greatly improve people's ability to create a powerful impression in a public speaking setting, interview, sales pitch or conversation. The slides could be better - they work ok for following along during the presentation, but aren't very good for review. A couple of the slides had videos where the music was so loud the instructor couldn't even be heard.

This covered such a wide variety of critical speaking situations, I consider it a must have for anybody that has anything to important to say to audience of 1-100,000. I will be recommending it to my college grad before he goes out on any interviews and using it for leading my local ladies connection group but its applications are endless. Bravo!

I really enjoyed this presentation. As an Accountant and Consultant I am asked to speak to people all the time, this will now give me a different approach that I feel will help me connect and let the audience know that I know who they are.

I rarely give 5-star reviews, but he is a great presentor. I wish all the other instructors used his methods. The other classes only use power point with audio while Nathan uses this video format of classes properly.

A lot of great information. Almost too dense in details. The companion materials were good with helping me stay on track and I'm sure will be a great resource.

The course was great and went directly to the point of providing helpful tips vs the theory of it. Powerpoint is very helpful take away as well.
