    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.
