It's the foundation for social skills, emotional intelligence, and people skills, and it's not as difficult to learn as it's made out to be.

Look how these students compared this course to many others, plus a university-

Christine Tripp says:

"I've taken several courses on speaking and none of them were like this course! This course is what they are missing."

Eugene Berman says :

"Local universities here in Massachusetts charge $1,200 to $2,500 or more for speaking courses & most aren't half as good as yours! Many are a disappointment. Your speaking course really is wonderful."

The one & only SPARKWORDS Speaking method: Skip Theory, Master Art, Speak-Up & PUNCH FEAR in the FACE!

Here is Why My Sparkwords Public Speaking Course Works So Well

A LOT of Public Speaking Courses, Books or Classes are so boring that the student dreads the learning process and drops out or takes the course but learns nothing because it was so hard paying attention.

The way I teach is to excite and get their heart involved along with their mind. Sometimes you can’t just feed the mind but must feed the heart in order to access both heart & mind, as well as get the desired success from the student. 

I teach in scattered order, adding pieces at a time from different directions. This way they can build small pieces of the puzzle and absorb it over time. It also challenges them by keeping them in constant mental stimulation with interesting stories & constant moving around so that they are working to keep up. Japanese fishermen put sharks in the live wells with the fish to keep them lively and fresh by running constantly away from the shark. Interestingly enough, a lot of the fish would die before they get back to shore if it wasn’t for the running from the shark that keeps them alive.

I'll see you inside :)
