Jackie led an incredible workshop that provided participants with a new and fresh perspective on effective communication. The opportunity to practice in person and get real-time feedback was invaluable.
This session was one of the best workshops I’ve attended. It was efficient, valuable, comfortable (yet pushed me out of my comfort zone) and powerful.

It was totally energizing and SO hugely helpful.
It really felt like it was crafted for me. I’m incredibly more confident.

I loved it and can't wait to apply these skills. Extremely impressed at the engagement kept throughout. Did not feel like we were in here for hours. So appreciative of this training.
I am grateful I was introduced to Bespoken to improve vocal command, presentation skills, confidence and presence. It was beyond my expectations for what I wanted to achieve and I highly recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat.
