“Bill Beaman and John Watkis of Global Public Speaking are both seasoned teachers who engaged our team of varying skill levels with a lot of material FAST and created an atmosphere of trust and productivity, start to finish. The substance was first-rate: most of us had been through a similar course at some point, and this one stood out for its relevance and rigor. Finally, the value is immediately apparent: in the effectiveness of presentations that we have made and will make, and in our shared desire to apply the lessons and continue to develop our skills.” – Clarke Bruno, Anbaric

“I am writing to you again to let you know that the public speaking and media training you did were really effective. I got out of my comfort zone and I did an interview with one of the biggest news channels in South East Asia. I am also sitting on a…panel in Singapore next month. In addition to that, I have been nominated to deliver an opening speech at a…forum in September in New York. I would have never done any of this without your training and encouragement. I just wanted to say thank you.” – Participant from Asia, Vital Voices FORTUNE, U.S. State Department Global Women’s Mentorship Program

Her skills allow her to connect with people in a personal and professional manner that helps her participants to be confident, prepared, and organized in their delivery.

“This online program changed the way I feel about public speaking. Through a clever and fun journey, I discovered the top secrets of public speaking: how to organize the writing, how to connect with people when delivering, and how to speak on the breath. More importantly, I learned how to see public speaking as something natural and familiar. I really enjoyed the practice tools towards the end. Yes, practice is everything but Allison shows you how to do it. I don’t know how Allison did it but what I learned during her program remains tattooed in my mind.” – Martin Furlong, International Business Consultant and Educator
