“I wish I’d had this course 30 years ago! Couldn’t have been better! Deserves 10’s!”

“Communication skills help make it a better world. Thanks for your tremendous contribution!”

“Not only are the students learning and having fun; but I also enjoy teaching your material. The DVD is outstanding and students love the clips!”

“Even after 30+ years in education, this course offers concrete and practical ideas to implement in my classroom. Though as an individual, I am quiet by nature – this course has helped me see the need to be more animated and varied in my speech!”

“Helps all that come into contact with any potion. Dramatic results for kids and instructors (instantaneous).”

“I am so impressed with this technique, with materials, the set-up of the lesson plan, and supplemental materials.”

“This would be an effective tool for both students & teachers to learn. I am happy to be able to expand my speaking skills. It increases my self confidence.”

“My students did their new practice speeches yesterday, and I was delighted with their progress. It’s
great when they can see the difference as well… Some of my students from last year have stopped in to let me know that they still remember the “winter” speech. One girl told me it is the thing that pops into her head whenever her mind goes blank! She also commented on how much the Hendrie Method had helped her in presenting. Another success story!”

“Fantastic improvements. Immediate results. Thank you for offering this opportunity.”

“I really appreciate the well-planned lessons and the superior quality of the DVD. This is a very complete package which will help me teach business communication students how to make professional presentations.”

“My confidence increased a great deal. Very good learning tools and I can’t wait to put it all together.”

“Outstanding presentation. I started using this immediately and it’s already going to work wonders. Thanks a lot.”

“This has been one of the most useful workshops I’ve attended! A great variety of materials that will be of great benefit to my students!”

“Wow! Thank you! The time spent was definitely worth it.”

“Content is easy to adapt to Classroom. Techniques can be taught to students for debate, etc.”

“Outstanding. Awesome. Very Beneficial – loved it! Thanks.”

“I loved your class so much – it is awesome to go to something so useful and that will be so valuable for kids. Thanks so much.”

“Before my students competed in International Marketing, I worked with them on their rhythm of speech [as taught in the course] – breaking down the sections as we were taught. They got 29 out of 30 on their presentation!”

“Not only are the students learning and having fun; but I also enjoy teaching your material. The video is outstanding and students love the clips!”

“Excellent. Enjoyed your presentations. Learned a lot at the same time. I definitely will teach this to all of my students.”

“This workshop would be great for students and teachers in our high school.”

“Very well presented and easy to follow along. I’m looking forward to the refresher.”

“Instinctively, I know some of these things, but it was good to get specific strategies of practice and feedback.”

“Good workshop – well done.”

“I was not looking forward to doing the speeches and seeing and hearing myself. You helped a lot and hopefully I can help my students in the same way.”

“Very personable & wants everyone to become better (and they do)”

“Thank you.”

“Had fun and learned a lot about what I can do with speaking! Thanks.”

“Once again – delightful! So useful for us as well as our students.”

“Content is easy to adapt to classroom. Techniques can be taught to students for debate, etc…”

“Delivers quick methods to use & implement immediately. Very active.”

“Very hands on and useful. I can use this right away in my classes.”

“Very beneficial – loved it!”

“Encouraging, animated, great task analysis.”

“Great program.”

“Even better the 2nd time around. Thanks.”

“Great fun!”

“I am grateful there are follow-up opportunities. Thank you.”

“Great job!”

“2nd time – focused on the imagery instead of just gestures. Took a different turn for me. Looking forward to tomorrow.”


“So much information. Well-thought out layout of course and materials.”

“Excited to put this into play.”

“Thank you for another great course.”

“I can’t wait to teach it!”

“Great time! Learned a lot! Great tools for teaching and coaching!”

“Great resources made it easy to teach.”

“I enjoyed today very much! I saw a way to use this with my students.”

“I want to help with these ideas for teaching and integrating into schools in any way possible! I’m willing to pilot programs, instruct, collect data, do research and lit reviews – whatever you need.”

“I learned a lot and look forward to using it in my classroom”

“Public speaking was my weakness. I felt so intimidated and terrified. I’m still nervous about my next speaking request but I’m excited to see how it goes and especially to see how my kids/students grow.”

“I enjoyed this a second time.”

“Lots of fun! Thanks for the training. Nice to go through the training again.”

“Very useable materials for my course.”

“Great fun! Contemplate the ‘throw-a-wiggle’ and the ‘jab-away’.”

“Stephanie Hendrie has the ability to teach almost anyone to be a good public speaker.”

“This was the most useful workshop I have attended in the past ten years.”

“I was recommended to this course and I am definitely sure that I will use this course information in my classroom”

“Really appreciated practice techniques to be better prepared as well as a more communicative speaker. This course should be mandatory for all teachers!”

“Whispering technique! Works 100%! Eye contact – great strategy. I will use this in my program.”

“This is an excellent program. The techniques were easy to understand and implement. The instructor is very personable, encouraging and knowledgeable. She is very effective in pacing the class to keep things moving & fun, but also informative & educational. Thank you!”

“Dynamic – seemed like individualized teaching based on what you are comfortable with when speaking to others.”

“Thanks! Would be valuable for reading and writing teachers.”

“There was tons of information that is going to be useful to my students! This course was great for recognizing movement gestures!”

“Really appreciated the more active participation of this course!”

“Good reminders and encouragement for working with kids. Great job!”

“I hope to see the program continued and offered to more schools & students.”

“The teachers in our workshop really appreciate The Instructor’s willingness to go over anything they need more information on.”

“This course was even better than the last refresher. I liked the new skills, thank you!!”

“Thank you. I’m looking forward to getting more involved in teaching Secrets next year”

“Reinforced what I learned. Help me to evaluate what I taught my students.”

“So fun & useful.”

“Very motivating.”

“Helpful – stimulating.”

“Really enjoy the “hands on” approach.”


“Great class!”

“The Refresher course was great because it pinpointed all of the small tips that might have been forgotten since the first Secrets Course.”

“So fun and useful.”

“Thank you! This was great!”

“The follow up is so necessary for reinforcement! Like any new skill, practice & evaluation is important to truly acquiring the skill.”

“Thanks, the group discussions were great. I wish other Tech Prep Directors had been here for their benefit in identifying ways to help the teachers move to the “next steps.”

“I was reminded of several things I had forgotten.”

“I feel like I’m better prepared to give a short course for my high school & speech & debate kids! I had forgotten quite a bit and was glad to have this refresher.”

“This was great to fill in gaps and help to better prepare to present to the students.”

“Fantastic! I can’t wait to teach this to my kids! I’ll let you know if we win state!”
