While we have a lot of experience in event organizing, this training exposed and shed light on our weaknesses and strengths, opportunities and threats in managing an affair. This activity provided guidelines to become a more effective and efficient host.

The workshop enhanced my capacity to implement an event, taking into account the major areas which have to be given focus and the 5 W’s to avoid failure. I am willing to share my learning to my officemates upon my return to my area of work so we will have a better teamwork to help us facilitate project implementation in our area.
TalkShop program design is practical and could be readily adapted into our area of assignment. The topic I most like is understanding the personality of people and values with whom a person can work well.
TalkShop Consultants are conversant with the topics assigned to them and made learning easier with an interactive approach in facilitating and incorporating true-to-life experiences to reflect the concepts introduced.
Being an effective event organizer following the steps to consider is the workshop’s transformative effect

Being able to communicate effectively is very important because it affects every aspect of our life. Your expertise in your career will be judged based on how well you express your ideas. Effective communication is crucial whether in written or spoken form.
Our personal lives will be greatly affected and relationships may be threatened if we cannot clearly say or express our feelings. That is why I believe that for a person to succeed in life, he must be an effective communicator.

I participated in TalkShop’s interview simulation. It was an extremely value-adding experience for me because the consultants were able to shed light into the elements of interviews that many have a hard time preparing for. We usually spend so much time trying to think of the answers that we end up not preparing for how we’re actually going to communicate them. TalkShop knows that the package is important and they will help you become that complete package.
I learned a lot especially because the topics discussed are those that people don’t usually think of or prepare for when applying for jobs: voice, appearance, posture, and poise. I liked that there are two TalkShop interviewers so that different skills are given focus. The TalkShop consultants are frank and compassionate. They seem to really care about the interviewees’ improvement and career success. It made me realize that job application is so much more than just how good you are through the things you’ve done before. A lot of it is also about how you are able to sell yourself and communicate your values.
Andrea Nicole Kalagayan, Virata School of Business, University of the Philippines- TalkShop Job Interview Simulation
Hello Talkshop! Thanks a lot for the experience! I really learned a lot and I know that everything I learned today will help me land my dream job. Kudos! I learned several aspects at the interview which will aid my job hunting in the future. It was designed really well and it tackled several areas that are definitely crucial in an interview. I liked the fact that the interviewers are really accommodating and they know their stuff. Both TalkShop consultants know a lot of communication stuff. The main transformative effect of the workshop is knowing how to be more assertive, creative, and being able to apply the rules of etiquette.
Mark Aldine Bucao, Virata School of Business, University of the Philippines- TalkShop Job Interview Simulation
Before taking the interview simulation, I didn’t know what to expect. I’ve previously taken an internship, so I felt more confident in entering the classroom. However, I was surprised that I still I had a lot to improve on particularly with the small details such as my posture, gestures, and the way I speak. I definitely learned a lot from this TalkShop interview experience and will surely bring there with me in future endeavors.
Over all, I learned a lot of things I needed to improve on and focus as these aspects are often overlooked. I like how the interview was segmented in such a way that it was the interview proper, followed by the evaluation and teaching session. Both Ms. Joy and Ms. Mench, TalkShop consultants, are very realistic, yet friendly and approachable, which made the interview better. The activity made me realize that I had a lot to improve on and these I can take with me even outside an interview scenario.
Kathleen Huang, Virata School of Business, University of the Philippines- TalkShop Job Interview Simulation
TalkShop provided valuable insights on how I should respond to certain questions. The interviewers also made me realize my shortcomings and how I can improve on them. It offers a good simulation experience that gave me a good feel about the interview process itself. TalkShop consultants are very nice and informative. They gave me tips on how I could present myself in different situations. The Mock Interview offered me a new perspective and gave me relevant information. I believe that through this activity, I am able to gain valuable insights that will help me in the corporate world.
Sabrina Melisande Tamayo, Virata School of Business, University of the Philippines -TalkShop Job Interview Simulation
The interview simulation is one of the most value-adding workshops I’ve ever attended. Not only does it prepare me for the corporate setting, it has also helped me to believe in myself. I learned a lot like how to answer questions, act under pressure, and feel confident with myself. It is very relevant and should be availed by students. I like the part where the TalkShop Consultants correct the body language and make us aware of our mannerisms.
Ms. Mench and Ms. Joy really know what they’re talking about. They are very observant and great in providing constructive criticism. I hope to reach their level of presentation. The TalkShop sessions made me aware of my actions during interview.
Chryslyn Peralta, Virata School of Business, University of the Philippines-TalkShop Job Interview Simulation

TalkShop consultants are skilled at the science of interviewing and are very professional. This interview simulation motivated and inspired me to constantly practice and to try and improve myself.
John Jason Santillan, Virata School of Business, University of the Philippines-TalkShop Job Interview Simulation
I had studied for two months in TalkShop. When I went to TalkShop, at first, I couldn’t speak and write well in English, nor could I listen easily to it. After these two months, I can express myself better in English now. Usually, the teachers asked me what I wanted to do, so I took the classes with a specific aim in mind every day. They taught me grammar, writing (with little business writing), speaking and presentation skills, and even TOEIC practice tests. My studies here gave me a wonderful experience. I will continue to study English on my own. I learned a lot and I improved my communication skills. The TalkShop consultants are interesting, kind, sometimes challenging. I liked the conversations with my classmates also. I enjoyed my classes. TalkShop made me a more talkative person. I will be back.

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.
I love my TalkShop Teacher because she teaches me English words, how to talk in English, and include life and work words.

Dorothy Santos, Metadata Specialist, Financial Times
My grateful appreciation to the Financial Times Management for giving me the opportunity to enhance my writing and speaking skills with TalkShop. I have learned several techniques and styles in speaking and writing from attending the weekly classes. I am now more confident to tell my ideas and more aware of what I need to improve. I am excited to apply all the learnings in my everyday work and share advice to my colleagues when facing challenges at work. Again, my sincerest thanks for choosing me as one of the participants in the training.
Lorebelle Enriquez Callao, CRM Data Coordinator, Financial Times
The TalkShop Session today is about speeches and I think it is beneficial that we are able to practice speaking in front of an audience. The most noticeable part for me is the “note that speech is just like a regular dialogue.” Ms. Cecile Matulac handled the graduation preparation well even for a short period. We are now prepared and rehearsed for our upcoming graduation and speech delivery and I can say that I had a really good time.
Allan Mancera, Financial Times
Today in TalkShop, I learned a lot of details when it comes to reciting a specific statement or poetry with feelings and also how to pronounce words the right way. The design of the training today is very helpful because it helps us to prepare for our upcoming TalkShop graduation. I like it most when we recited our pieces in front and when Ms. Cecile Matulac guided us to deliver it right. She is very kind and not boring. She would laugh with the jokes of my colleagues and at the same time she shared interesting ideas that would guide us in public speaking. The transformative effect that TalkShop training did to me is that I am now able to perform well in my conversations and presentations and will be as prepared in our mini-graduation.
Veronica Castillo, Financial Times
It is another fun-filled yet effective session under a very capable trainer and mentor from TalkShop! I learned so much about public speaking and speech eloquence. The workshop is effective as the mentor provides timely feedback. The TalkShop Mentor did an amazing job! With the exercises, I improved in being more confident and focused.
Rodel Sisgon, Financial Times
Speech looks easy when you are just listening but if you are the speaker, it is a different story. However, I was wrong because this training with TalkShop reminded me so much that it is not hard at all and that you can deliver it as long as you work on the basics. A lot has improved in the past months. I totally had no idea on how I am going to use everything and relate it to our work but now everything seems to come out naturally. One word: Excellent! The approach to each training is simple but useful. I like it a lot. The TalkShop Consultants are patient and they adjust to the level of the trainees. They make sure that each one of us is learning new things each week. TalkShop Workshops had brought me to a higher level of proficiency! Excellent!
Noelito Aquino, Operations Support Analyst, Financial Times
Today’s TalkShop Session is very interesting. We learned how to deliver a speech in a good manner. The design of the workshop is very informative and interesting. Ms. Cecile Matulac is very good in coaching. She guides us in how to deliver a speech in front of many people. The next time I speak in front, I now have tips and tricks on hand.
Von Marasigan, Service Desk, Financial Times
Thanks to Ms. Cecile Matulac of TalkShop for the great time, lesson, and experience that she shared with us. What I have learned from TalkShop today is all about how to deliver poems. And so far, I love all the topics we tackled and discussed. Ms. Cecile Matulac is an awesome TalkShop Consultant. Through this session, I improved my confidence and learned proper pronunciation.
Roy Velasco, Service Desk, Financial Times
It was a very refreshing session with TalkShop away from the techie things and phone manners we have. Ms. Cecile Matulac shows how to deliver the speeches in a manner that allows us to emphasize the word in the way we speak. Ms. Cecil taught us how to become a good speaker by showing us the great ways and emphasizing on the tone or how we speak keywords. Again, TalkShop had a well designed session. I love the poem part because I love poems very much. Ms. Cecile Matulac is a very patient instructor. She teaches us well and it was another fun session.
Ferdinand Codizal, Service Desk, Financial Times
I enjoyed the session today with TalkShop especially the part where we recited the chosen poem for us. It was ironic that someone like me who’s an agnostic was chosen to recite a verse in the Bible. Ecclesiastes has always been my favorite book as it proves that everything has its opposites—much like the beginning and an end. Because of this, I learned so much beyond speaking and projecting myself well in front of others.
Michael Garcia, Operations Support Analyst, Financial Times
Today’s TalkShop session is as fun and as exciting as the previous one. It prepares us for the upcoming graduation. Ensuring that all we’ve learned from the previous sessions are still and continuously being applied. TalkShop never fails to boost my self-confidence.
Mark Musngi, Service Desk, Financial Times
TalkShop taught me how to converse properly, articulate my thoughts easily, project voice and speech effectively, and much more. TalkShop molded me to be an improved listener and speaker. I thank this institution because I wouldn’t have discovered more of my potentials and capabilities if not for the TalkShop teachers and the motivating classes. This had been a wonderful experience for me. I hope to further use my learning in other life scenarios.
I learned a lot from speaking eloquently to doing interviews and such. I really gained knowledge to be a better speaker. The workshop is really good. It has helped me improve on different aspects of myself for real life situations. You can learn so much of what you need most here at TalkShop. The TalkShop Consultants are great. They had been very welcoming and friendly. They helped the students be creative and well in these speaking sessions. Before entering here in TalkShop, I thought I could already talk to anyone with ease. I thought I had a 100% speaking skills. TalkShop made me an even more effective speaker and listener too.
Angelo Iringan, Student
TalkShop changed my life. I can deliver my thoughts better than before. I now appreciate the importance of communication in everyday life. The workshop is very beneficial to me because the lessons are applicable and realistic. The TalkShop Consultants are very knowledgeable on the subject matter and warm to the students. I surely developed my communication skills. There is no wonder TalkShop is called the best English school. It is!
Reginald Fortus, Entrepreneur
I highly recommend the TalkShop to our office for the second or next phase of the workshop. Many of our staff learned to develop self confidence in their public speaking. The TalkShop Facilitators are very good and nice. I know that the lessons we had will be of help in our work.
Ruby Rimando, Employees' Compensation Commission
Even though I have already undergone Training for Trainers, this training with TalkShop still improves me a lot in order to perform my job effectively and efficiently. I learned a lot in the way I talk, project, and walk. The workshop is perfect. Hoping this will be available in other areas of the country. Every TalkShop Consultant is perfect and effective in imparting the techniques to us. The workshop made my better, and inspired me to be my best.
Stella Mae Obice, Employees' Compensation Commission
Thank you so much TalkShop for giving us the opportunity to improve our speaking ability and build our self-confidence. I really learned a lot especially the correct pronunciation of some words and how we project ourselves in front of the public. The TalkShop Consultants are very much accommodating and their accent and fluency in speaking English are exemplary and formidable. TalkShop dramatically improved my confidence when presenting to anyone or to any group.
Yves Agbulos, Commissioner’s Office - Executive Assistant II, Employees' Compensation Commission
I testify that this workshop with TalkShop is a highly effective way of improving someone’s confidence and character. Also, TalkShop encourages people to harness their communication skills further. I learned a lot. Some information were just a sort of reminder from college days although most of them are new. The workshop is comprehensively helpful and very informative. The workshop speeches were all very good. The TalkShop Consultants are well-versed, inspiring, and good-looking speakers. TalkShop encouraged me to be more confident and to practice more to be better.
Olga Dewata, Information Officer II, Employees' Compensation Commission
Job well done, TalkShop! I learned so much and I am willing to share to everyone. It was very interactive which keeps the audience alive. The TalkShop Consultants are very pleasing and very informative. The workshop was a great self-confidence boost and motivated me to introduce myself in front of the crowd.
Ian Jeric Palma, Executive Assistant I, Employees' Compensation Commission
I love everything in the workshop. Thanks TalkShop! I learned a lot in every dimension or areas of public speaking. I seem to like everything in the lectures because everything is important. The TalkShop Consultants are very excellent people that deliver their knowledge freely and eloquently. I am very much transformed because of confidence building lessons.
Christopher Gamboa, Information Officer II, Employees' Compensation Commission
Because we have to speak to various clients, we have a vast experience when it comes to speaking in front of an audience but the common mistake we make is that we often forget the importance of diction, pronunciation, and projection which play a crucial role in effective public speaking. TalkShop’s program will prove to be very useful in making us understand that communication is a growing process. It was very interactive and the TalkShop Consultants know what they are doing. I was able to come out of my shell and express myself more freely.
Michelle Basal, Information Officer II, Employees' Compensation Commission
During the two-day seminar in TalkShop, my confidence leveled up and I believe that I will also be like the TalkShop Consultants, who are both experts. I learned the techniques and the efficient way in communicating to a large number of people. The workshop was very well designed in such an interesting manner. What I liked about the workshop was the “Tsunami walk” and the Power Pause for confidence building. The TalkShop Consultants are experts. They delivered the seminar in a very efficient and effective way. Probably what transformed is the confidence in me and I believe that after the seminar I would be more efficient in dealing with a large audience.
Gil Datayan Jr., Information Officer, Employees' Compensation Commission
In the two-day TalkShop training, I was able to express myself more and develop some public speaking skills. I learned the skills, tips, and techniques in public speaking. I enjoyed and really appreciated the activity where everyone got to speak their minds spontaneously and practice during the Power Pause portion. The TalkShop Consultants are professionals and I was trained very well. I can say that I am now improved and ready for bigger opportunities.
Cerna Ahmad, Information Officer II, Employees' Compensation Commission
Thank you for all the tips, TalkShop. I have dreamt to be employed in a firm just like yours. God Bless! I learned a lot. In fact, I became more interested about Public Speaking. Your lessons are very systematic—very well planned. The TalkShop Consultants are very good experts in their field. The workshop improved my speaking skills and personality.
Stephene Barredo, Information Officer II, Employees' Compensation Commission
The TalkShop Workshop is a very helpful tool in improving the skill and confidence in public speaking. It’s beginner-friendly but also challenging. I like the introduction portion the most. The TalkShop Consultants are physically and intellectually attractive. Because of the workshop, I had an overnight metamorphosis.
Patrick Chad Guzman, Information Officer, Employees' Compensation Commission
I always loved writing and speaking but due to changing lifestyle and preference, I deliberately hid it under the rug. The TalkShop training reminded me of the pleasure I used to get from writing and speaking. I am inspired to pursue it again even just for personal use or development. The program is organized and I learned about both prepared and impromptu speeches. The TalkShop Consultants know what they’re doing. I will continue to be better until I become the best.
Naomi Velasquez, Information Officer, Employees' Compensation Commission
I had a great time with TalkShop. Even if I had experienced the same public speaking seminar, TalkShop offered new insights and new approaches on the topic. Thanks, I really learned a lot! The topics are very well organized. The TalkShop Speakers are very good. Their insights are new and very refreshing. I realized that I did not need to please anyone. I just need to be me and everything will follow.
Ma. Yvette Casin-Bonavente, Information Officer II, Employees' Compensation Commission
Very good, TalkShop! I learn so much even though my job does not require me to do public speaking. All of the topics and modules are relevant in our work. The TalkShop Consultants are very effective and we never had a boring moment. I had a 100% transformation: from the physical look and gestures to the content of speech, outlook, voice, and tone.
Claudine Rodriguez, POIII, Employees' Compensation Commission
TalkShop, I would like to say, thank you for giving us a wonderful training. This is one of the trainings that I will never forget. More power to you. I have learned a lot most especially in the lesson on how to write a letter properly. Sheila Viesca and Cecile Matulac know the topics well. The workshop gave me confidence to speak the English Language.
John Thomas Rodriguez, Information Security Specialist, Networld Capital Ventures, Inc.
The TalkShop Workshop is a fun way to learn more about the English language. It will help you discover new knowledge that you can use in your daily life, be it work or personal. Everything was discussed properly and explained thoroughly. Sheila Viesca and Cecile Matulac have an extensive knowledge about the English Language. The TalkShop Workshop helped me realize that grammar is something I should not be afraid of.
