"Prepare to Speak is an excellent course for someone who has to speak in front of others. Gayle went over and above the call of duty to ensure understanding and the greatest skill development. The training helped me a great deal in learning how to best structure a presentation to get points across by being clear, concise, and then quiet."


"Our staff has been able to use the Prepare to Speak training in a variety of situations with very good results; even when making a spur of the moment presentation without much time to prepare."

- Wisconsin Gas

"We are not your typical customer. In our environment, it's hard to get brokers to sit still, let alone attend training. Having gone through the Prepare to Speak training, I realize how beneficial it is for people in our industry. Knowing that Gayle can provide one-on-one training, I would encourage our brokers to spend the time because it will make them more effective in the long run."

- Polacheck, A CB Richard Ellis Company

"The training was excellent and focused on our specific needs. I have found it particularly helpful when speaking one-to-one. Now I sort through my ideas before I speak."

- Manpower International

"I was pleasantly surprised at how much we learned about how to organize an effective presentation. In the past we tried to cover too many topics. The Prepare to Speak system forces us to be more focused and organized."

- Smith Barney Inc

"Before you deliver a speech, don't try to memorize a script. Select key words to guide you. If your ideas are organized clearly, your delivery will take care of itself."


- Gayle Brickman, Investor's Business Daily
