TalkShop Business Writing and Grammar Mastery Training ,  12-14 November 2013      Division Chiefs and Senior Officers – Philippine National Oil Company, Bonifacio Global City


The Division Chiefs and OIC’s of the Philippine National Oil Company (PNOC) brush up on their English communication skills.  Yet again, another proof that the best leaders thrive because they never stop sharpening the saw and setting their foundation right at whatever stage of life they are in.


The 3-day activity was designed and led by TalkShop CEO Sheila Viesca and consultant Cecile Matulac who worked together to help the participants appreciate the integration of speech, writing, and thinking skills to effect a positive difference through their words, meaning, and composition.


TalkShop, the pioneer of Integrated Language Teaching (ILT) and the only ISO-certified, Civil Service-accredited communication training institute paves the way for decision makers to be in touch with their voice as they inspire others towards communication and leadership excellence.


The participants share their TalkShop experience:



Robert F. Villa, Jr., Public Relations Officer V, PNOC


The 3-part outline (Situation, Complication and Resolution) that was discussed in the workshop was the topic I liked the most. I also learned so much more. Ms. Sheila and Ms. Cecile are very qualified. Thanks to them, it has reinforced my beliefs in public speaking. Ms. Sheila, your English course is the best! Others just focus on writing. But you focus on the holistic considerations. You connected the speaking part which is just as important.



Aoron R. Viuya, Division Chief III, PNOC


During the 3-day TalkShop workshop, I realized that I needed to learn more vocabularies and practice public speaking more. I was refreshed with the parts of speech and uses. I also liked the individual presentations. We learned from each other’s mistake and discerned what should be the right tenses. I also realized that the most important factor of your speech is to motivate and inspire others. Ms. Sheila and Ms. Cecile are very competent to handle the lessons and questions of the students.



Danilo B. Aunario, OIC – Division Chief, PNOC

The TalkShop consultants, Ms. Sheila Viesca and Ms. Cecile Matulac, shared their experiences for our learning and met the objectives of the program. Attending this workshop gave me an increase in confidence and presentation skills.

Antonio G. Buenviaje, Division Chief III, PNOC


            This course rekindled my fears about English composition. But it is a good thing to relearn rules that we have taken for granted so long. I like the speaking part wherein one was able to share their passions and deep emotions. The TalkShop consultants are very pleasant. Hopefully in the future I can be a convincing speaker or debater.

            I learned many grammar rules that were not discussed thoroughly in school. One of them was verb tenses and I learned through different examples.
