Thank you so much for your wonderful speech on Leadership and the Power of Listening. You were the perfect speaker to kick off the relaunch of the Women in Business division of the Hunt Valley Business Forum. Everyone was so excited and animated after your interactive speech. You really brought a fine message to each participant. You are a superstar!
— Lynn Finckel, Women in Business Chairperson, Hunt Valley Business Forum
Many thanks for a fantastic presentation to our Communication and Recognition committee! I heard wonderful comments from our participants about how helpful you were as we examined our own body language together. You examined all 3 V’s; vocal, visual, and verbal. You were so careful to offer tips without expecting perfection. Thanks so much for all your time and effort for our staff!! You’re the best!!!

The Successfully Speaking course provided pragmatic and accessible directions to improve both the structure and delivery of my presentations. The class was also revealing in enabling me to step back from a subject I’m too familiar with, and then structure a talk that makes sense from the audiences perspective.

After taking the Successfully Speaking Sessions with Lynda Katz Wilner I could see a big improvement in my awareness of my speech patterns. I’m now able to catch myself when I am speaking and when my subjects and verbs don’t agree. Not only am I catching myself, but I am able to catch others in meetings and public settings. In a very short time she was able to begin correcting my southern accent; with continued practice I am sure that this problem will be corrected.
Lynda is very easy to work with and makes you feel really relaxed during the speech sessions. She was very flexible and really great at accommodating my challenging schedule; she always had a time that worked great for me. Thanks for the great learning experience!

I want to thank you for your valuable input and the tips you gave me. My speech at Church on Sunday was very well received and everyone said they loved it. I took your advice and didn’t write the speech out…..I thank you again from the bottom of my heart because without your help I don’t think my speech would have had the impact on the audience that it did. Everything I said came naturally from me as opposed to being stiffly read from a piece of paper.

Lynda Katz Wilner helped me raise the effectiveness of my verbal and non-verbal business communication which I am pleased to say is generating positive results. Her program is well thought out and systematic, but also customized to work on the skills that I needed to improve upon the most. After she completed a baseline measurement, we focused on the areas that needed the most improvement. She pointed out new strategies at each session that I would work on during my business day or individually. Each session was an opportunity for me to share my results and begin new skill training to achieve new objectives. I highly recommend Successfully Speaking and Lynda Katz Wilner to business professionals who are motivated to improve their communication skills in their professional and personal life.

I have always wanted to be a top-notch speaker. This course, while not giving ‘instant results’ that we crave, gives me the tools, techniques, and confidence that will allow me to reach my goal of being an excellent speaker. If I don’t reach that goal, it is because I did not use all the tools Lynda gave me. Of all the training I have taken, this, without a doubt, is the most useful. It will benefit me for the rest of my life.
