“I want to thank you for your help in preparing our CEO for his first video. I was impressed at the progress you made with a client who had no prior experience with video and therefore was not at ease in front of the camera. Your techniques enabled him to feel and look more comfortable for his audience. I also appreciated the suggestions you offered while the video was being produced. Having you on the set the day of the shoot was extremely beneficial.

I look forward to working with you on future projects.”

Underwriting Executive

“Thanks for all your help prepping for the presentation last week. After I got into the presentation and got a laugh it was pretty fun. I got a lot of comments afterwards; they definitely didn’t expect me to do something like this. My group will be forever known as “uuunderwriting”. Thanks again.”

Tech Prep Teacher

“I just began The Hendrie Method with my Honors Students today. I don’t think I ever told you that last year one of my students did a parody of the “winter speech” as his campaign speech for student government. He won, and the rest of my students loved it. They all asked me, “Did you see [Student’s] Speech?”

“What a delightful way to spend a Friday, learning how to communicate more effectively. Everybody really appreciated the theory and coaching. In fact, I think we all spent the weekend practicing ‘jabbing’, ‘dabbing’, and ‘jerking’ to whoever would listen. Do not hesitate to use us as a reference. I am already discussing your course with other divisions.”

“Thank you for the gift of going thru the program and for your valuable feedback. I learn so much from you. I also appreciate you taking the time to write my letter that spells out what I have mastered and what I need to practice. You can be sure I will be taking you advice. Finally, the 3 physician leaders had a great day and improved wildly from the morning—once again, you have shown me how well your method works. Many thanks!”

“As class liaison for Project CENTRL Class XXII, I want to express our gratitude to you for “fixing” our public speaking glitches and enabling us to be strong representatives for our community.

“The most exciting byproduct of the “Secrets” course is the confidence and sense of esteem one receives. It quiets the voice in the head where the first thing you hear is not ‘You can’t do that.’”
