About the workshop

Here’s what some of my students have said about the workshop:

“I used to think I was a good speaker. But there is a before and after the Speak Up workshop. My main goal when signing up was to eliminate the use of "uh and ah's" and other filler words, but I gained much more. My presentations are now more structured and the content has a higher impact on my audience. Candela makes the workshop entertaining and enjoyable. The techniques and tools she uses are versatile, and can be adapted for presentations in any area of knowledge. Dare to get out of the ordinary and your audience will thank you."

“Public speaking used to make me panicky and stressed. I would start sweating and it was easy to see my nervousness. After the workshop, I relaxed. Now I feel more confident. This workshop gave me tools for many other things in daily life, not only for formal and informal presentations. It inspired me! What I liked the most was learning to better structure my ideas, and to be able to practice and receive feedback from different viewpoints. And learning about hooks, hooks, hooks!"

“This course was very useful. Candela provided advice that has proven to be very effective in maintaining the audience’s attention as well as tips on how to sidestep some of the most common problems that may occur when delivering a talk. I particularly enjoyed the “impromptu” speeches, as it gave everyone a chance to be creative and learn how to deliver a brief talk in a confident and organized manner in the spur of the moment’ ”
