So many great topics were covered. Each section was clear, concise, and actionable. There is a lot I can digest and start working on at work tomorrow.

It was such a pleasure to host Bespoken at John Jay College! We went on a site visit at Democracy NOW and the students were asked to introduce themselves to their donors and staff (including Amy Goodman). As our students were speaking I could see them applying the concepts we discussed & practiced during the Bespoken workshops. It was great!

Thank you, Jackie, for how much thought and care you put into our sessions. They were so worthwhile and changed the way I think about speaking. My presentation went great today!! I felt very prepared and confident and the idea was so well received.

It’s really hard for me to communicate in English. When I present or speak I’m very nervous. So today’s workshop with Jackie was invaluable to me.

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.
