"I took the Storytelling and was blown away by: how much I (and everyone else) improved in just 8 hours, how easy it was to pick up and immediately use their frameworks for telling a personal story, customer success story, inspirational story, etc., and how safe it felt trying out new speaking techniques. I've got 3 more trainings to take and can't wait! "
