I joined the SPARKS program already having some experience in the public speaking space but after the weeks I shared with my cohort; my entire perspective of public speaking was expanded and enlightened. The program administrators, Mr. & Mrs. King have a profound understanding of the nature of their subject matter and of people. This enables them to teach in a professional, personalized and empathetic way that in my opinion, energizes students and solidifies their teaching. From the first session I felt welcomed, heard and valued and this remained the case throughout the program. As for the tools, techniques and knowledge that I learnt during our time together, I have incorporated them into my day-to-day communication and continue to feel and see their positive effect. I would gladly recommend this program or any program offered by this dynamic duo to persons who want to grow in communication and in character.
