Recent student feedback

5.0 stars This was a great class! I learned many tips and strategies for better presentation skills. The practice presentations were a good structure and Lena provided great feedback and tips on how to do something better. I would actually like to retake this course to pick up on what I missed. There was a lot of information and I know I missed some of it .
5.0 stars Juana is a very knowledgeable instructor with a very good balance of real world and personal experiences. She understood immediately the areas of the training I need to concentrate on and improve. I very much appreciate the flexibility of the class as it was personalized to improve my deficiencies.
4.6 stars Great overall experience. I have really enjoyed the interactive nature of the class. Many times I have been to trainings and it has been more of a read and discuss situation. I look forward to coming back and taking more classes through Training Connection
4.9 stars Jeanette was so great to work with! She was extremely engaging, knowledgeable and kept my interest the ENTIRE time. I thought I would go crazy having to sit in a classroom all day but it just flew by. I look forward to taking the skills she taught and using them in the future. I may even come back for the sales class. Thanks for the great experience!
