GTApreneurs Business Networking Markham – Tuesday, November 5, 2019 @ The Village Hive
What a great bunch of entrepreneurs who came out!


"Before starting the program, I did not have the confidence to stand up in front of a group and speak. It was something I struggled with for a long time. Tammy was patient and encouraging throughout the entire learning process. Now, although I still have a long way to go - I feel like I have gained more confidence and tips to help me succeed in public speaking. Despite public speaking just being one aspect of my job, I feel as though the confidence will transcend into other parts of my life. I'm happy to have taken the first step in improving my speaking with Tammy!Thanks so much, Tammy for helping me!"

"I was nervous at the beginning, standing in front of strangers. But I got over the fear after a while. I took the course so that I could gain confidence. I am more confident now and less nervous. I feel I am better equipped to speak in public. The instructor was very helpful and knowledgeable. She was aware of our weaknesses and helped us to improve. I would recommend this course."
