Here are some comments from attendees of our January 2008 Toastmasters Workshop and Class:
"The workshop and the class this past Thursday were outstanding! I used to be (and still am sometimes) exceedingly shy. After your class, I thought 'I can't believe I just did this!'. Your group creates such a positive and supportive environment, that even a very timid person feels comfortable giving improv a try, trusting that everybody will be supportive."
Karin vonKaenel, Lt. Governor Education, Toastmasters District 53
“The World Class Indifference presentation does an excellent job of getting people comfortably out of their "comfort zones" and turning learning communication and teamwork into a very fun time. The "exercises" were more like interactive games that made people actually eager to volunteer and participate. I both heartily and happily recommend attending their programs. You won't be disappointed.”
“I would like to thank Jeff Stern, The Greater Stamford Toastmasters, and "World Class Indifference" for an outstanding experience this past Tuesday, January 22. The many lessons and techniques I learned in just 2 hours will be invaluable to me in all of my future presentations.”
Geoff Thomas, CC/ALB President UHC Toastesters
