TalkShop learning is a fun and challenging training. They have helped me a lot in improving my grammar and also my confidence in writing and creating new knowledge in using the correct adjectives, pronouns, and adverbs in the sentence. This training boosted my confidence in writing and communicating. I learned a lot in the TalkShop Communication Training, to boost and improve my confidence in creating and structuring letters. The Business Writing workshop design is logical in sequence. What I like the most is the part when we pronounced the words correctly and take active part in the other activities given to us. The TalkShop Consultants are very nice and amazing. They have helpedus a lot in the proper use of words and in structuring proper sentence. TalkShop helps me a lot to understand more and be more knowledgeable in using the English language.

The first day of the TalkShopBusiness Writing Workshop was very interesting. I enjoyed the discussions and the exercises. At first, I thought the session would be all business and no fun but I was proven wrong. The materials are helpful and the lessons are informative. I learned a lot. My grammar and pronunciation are more polished after the session. In all honesty, I liked every bit of the workshop especially learning how to pronounce words properly and using prepositions. Both TalkShop Consultants are very knowledgeable about the subject. They were able to communicate the lesson in a clear and simple manner. The workshop has taught me the do’s and don’ts in grammar and writing.

TalkShop really helps us become a better writer and speaker. In just a span of a month, I did not only become a better writer but I also became more confident when speaking and expressing myself and my thoughts in front of others. I learned quite a lot of techniques I could easily apply when communicating in both writing and speaking through exercises like Power Poses, Breathing, and Power Pauses. The workshop is designed in a way that makes learning fun and I really enjoyed applying the techniques learned in class. I had Mr. Robert Borjal and Ms. Menchie Castro as my TalkShop Instructors for my program. Both of them are welcoming, friendly, and easy to talk to. I can now stand in front of an audience without feeling nervous. I now have the confidence to communicate and respond to other people. I just feel like a better person compared to who I was before the program.

The Personality Development Workshop is very informative and helpful to employees of PMS because it aids us in understanding and dealing effectively with our co-employees.

The Business Writing Workshop was free flowing and focused on the most relevant topics that make communication difficult. I learned a lot from it because all the topics were discussed. TalkShop ensured that we understand what we need. Through this, I learned to further conquer the fear of delivering a talk to an audience. I think Ms. Sheila Viesca is great! She is very personable and intelligent. I believe that the experience was very enjoyable. The style of TalkShop offered an intelligent andinteractive approach to teaching what would have been a boring subject. Hopefully in the future I would be part of their professional and diplomatic protocol training.

I learned a lot from TalkShop’s NLP Workshop conducted last Saturday and Sunday. The design of this TalkShop workshop is flexible. I like how it made use of images for retention. Engr. Claude Sta. Clara is very knowledgeable. He also changed the module content to make things easier for me. The experience is really life transforming! I can understand Meta NLP better now than before. The descriptions/instructions were clear with concrete examples on how to apply them. There were exercises as well that allows me to apply everything that I have learned.

I have constantly risen to the challenge of my leadership roles. I have worked with many types of personalities, and rarely deviate from the results that are the expected of my team. I find it a challenge enough to motivate people to a goal, set schedules, and perform their tasks. I understand that I will come across one of them in the future so I would have to understand that they have a lot of ideas in mind and that motivating them to share their ideas would be worth it. It is still a long road ahead of me and I will work with everyone to be a more effective leader. Together we can learn about different experiences, personalities, and lessons here in MNHPI. Together we can formulate our own style; a style that resonates with our values, our experiences, and our visions. Together, we are stronger.

TalkShop changed my perspective, most especially on how to tackle the rigors and challenges of work. The workshop is very good. What I like most are the group activities. TalkShop consultants came well-prepared in their subject matter. They are also fluent in English. The workshop helped carry myself to well during work. Before this seminar, a hole existed within that reflected the kind of work that I would do. But, now this hole was completely filled-up to the brim. I am more fulfilled and confident to face the task ahead. I now know myself better. TalkShop can deliver and create the change!

With the TalkShop training, we were able to learn more and improve our presentation skills. It is both to benefit the company and ourselves. Ms. Sheila Viesca and the speakers Martin and Robert are effective and convincing. They were able to capture the interest of the audience. I learned how to present better and talk with a large crowd in a proper way. I like the question and answer portion (pick a question from the box). TalkShop, you are the best English school. I hope to learn more techniques on how to overcome fear on speaking in a large crowd.

Thanks to Sheila Viesca and her team for the time and effort they gave us in teaching Effective Technical Writing.

After completing a month’s writing workshop in TalkShop, I noticed a marked improvement in my technical and business writing style. Proper use of tenses, subject-verb agreement, prepositions and parallelism are just some of the more helpful and enjoyable workshops for me and I look forward to more practical writing applications, progressive quizzes to further improve my writing skills. I am happy ICCP management has chosen TalkShop for coaching me in corporate communications. In fact, I have recommended TalkShop to some of my friends. Now, I am more confident in creating letters, business memos, and copies.

I learned a lot from this TalkShop Workshop, not to mention that my basic working knowledge of the MS Excel program was enhanced. I liked learning about the Pivot table and lookup functions. The TalkShop Consultants were very informative and patient in explaining concepts and activities not quickly understood. I often only use MS Word and would rarely use MS Excel in my line of work. But now that I have seen and experienced how easy MS Excel is, I will now use it more often to make and prepare for my reports and presentations.

I find this TalkShop Negotiation Training very interesting and helpful especially to us in the field of sales. It is the best training school in salesmanship and leadership. I gained more confidence in this workshop/training and I know myself better now. I learned a lot about relating with customers. It is a very good idea to join any TalkShop training in personal effectiveness. The area I liked most is profiling the different types of people. Knowing them will make me effective in my field. The TalkShop Trainers are very effective. I learned about different types of personalities. Now, I know what style or technique to use when talking to them, when offering products.

TalkShop introduced to me the possibility of developing a different me. A me who is confident, knowledgeable, and proficient in a certain area. Through TalkShop, I have also realized my potential to dabble into something that is out of my comfort zone. Because TalkShop believes in you, you then believe in yourself. I learned a lot in terms of techniques in public speaking, negotiation, and presentation. The practical application helped a lot in instilling the concepts taught. The program design touched areas that could best help a trainer in developing skills in this area. Careful thought was given to present sessions that are both interesting and informative. The TalkShop Consultants are experts in their particular fields. They were very diverse in their ways of presenting or introducing a topic using motivation, and practical application all throughout. The Consultants are also very professional in the way they conduct sessions and deal with students. The entire workshop made me look at myself differently. I realized that I have my strengths in certain areas and that I can further develop them to excel. Confidence-building is one effect that I welcome, especially in the area of public speaking.

Before, I wasn’t good at English, but I’m good at Math. My English scores were lower than my Math’s, and this made my parents unhappy, so my parents enrolled me at TalkShop to enhance my English skills. When we got here, someone gave me a test in English. It was a little hard for me because I wasn’t familiar with the topics. After doing the test, Ms. Sheila Viesca checked it. She told me that I was good but I was overanalyzing it. She told me to develop my creative side. So the lessons started. We practiced our writing and our speaking skills. After that, I got better in English, and my confidence was boosted. In fact, I even became a host in the Fine Dining and Social Graces Event. Because of this, I feel good about myself. Now, through the TalkShop experience, I have improved not only in English but also in my personality. I can express myself better.

Thanks to TalkShop, at least I have a general idea of how to deal with guests and behave in functions using proper protocol and business etiquette. The design is simple but creative. The activities weren’t sleepers. They were able to sustain our attention even in the midst of “rush work” brought to the venue. The parts on business protocol and international etiquette are new and I find them worthwhile. The TalkShop Consultants are very spontaneous! This training definitely enhanced my confidence!
