The Office of the Office of the President’s Commission on Filipinos Overseas take on TalkShop’s comprehensive workshop in Public Speaking and Presentation Skills.
As TalkShop continues to affirm the uniqueness in individuals and celebrate the art of public speaking in the development of leaders, 30 CFO counselors took part in a comprehensive workshop that exposed them to challenging presentation roles that hone their creativity and ability to be one with their message as they project credibility, and engage the audience.
Here is what participants have to say about their TalkShop experience:
Manny, ESO II
I have learned that in public speaking you give priority to what your audience wants to know and not what you need to say. I am privileged to be a part of this seminar and the new learning I acquired in this activity can greatly help me do my work as an orientation officer. The program is easy to follow and is enjoyable to do. I liked most the part where each participant was asked to deliver his story after writing down their thoughts. Ms. Sheila is a very effective consultant and facilitator. She made me realize that I can be a lot more as I improve my skills public speaking.
Cherry Duran, Admin Assistant
After attending today’s training, I personally think that I became a better public speaker than yesterday. I learned a lot today from pronouncing, delivering personal stories in front of colleagues down to creative writing. The topics were clearly discussed to us. The workshop is very good because all the participants were given the chance to speak and write. Ms. Viesca is an excellent Trainer. She really knows what she’s doing. She has helped us dramatically build our confidence in public speaking. Today I realized that anyone can be an effective public speaker and writer. You just need to practice it.
Mia Bisa, ESO II
I didn’t think I’d have fun from this training. It is safe to say that my supposed holiday break is worth spending in training after all. Thank you, Ms. Sheila. This training offered something new for our self-improvement not just as public speakers but as individuals, too. The program design will definitely be useful for all of us. Ms. Sheila didn’t make us feel intimidated of her and that felt good. She taught us to be comfortable in your own skin. Improvement happens every day.
Elfred del Rosario, ESO II
I’ve been reminded of many things from the past by just sharing stories and writing my thoughts. I learned much today, though there are things that I already knew it’s still a refreshing e experience for me taken in a different light. I like the part when I can practice what is thought, pronunciation exercises, sharing stories and writing.
Ms. Sheila Viesca is very knowledgeable and friendly. She speaks confidently.
Paul Avecilla, SESO
The strategy in building our confidence to speak is different from the usual class that I attended wherein there is no respect for audience capacity but focus on the techniques, but for our seminar today from TalkShop, I like the powerful small talk/tips. Also the posture helps to boost confidence by building your image and by accepting ourselves. The program design is relaxed yet substantial. Ms. Sheila is someone that CFO is longing for – a humble and intelligent lecturer who motivates well.
John Nihols Ruelos, Case Officer
What made this workshop helpful for me is it returns my drive to write again. I’ve been busy a lot and it made me remember what writing does to me. Thank you. It made me re evaluate myself a s a speaker and helps me revise my passion in writing. TalkShop design is good. It was able to exploit and work on our weakness to become better than who we are especially as a speaker. Ms. Sheila Viesca is very approachable and able to see each character that her participant has.
Patricia Marie Salvador
I thank TalkShop for helping me in improving my communication skills. Even from day 1 of this two-Saturday training, I already learned a lot on how to improve my communication skills. I like the part when we were tasked to deliver a story in front. Ms. Sheila is an excellent Speaker. She doesn’t only know the technicalities but she also managed to deliver a lively presentation.
TalkShop workshop helped me face my fear of speaking in front of a lot of people. I have to improve and I know I will become better.

I do believe now that any person can be a good writer and public speaker. So I can be both.

I learned much. I like the storytelling, power pose and words commonly mispronounced by Filipinos. TalkShop Trainer, Ms. Sheila Viesca is approachable, engaging and humble. She has also an encouraging personality. I think I can now practice coherence during my sessions. I have to be more aware of unnecessary gestures when I discuss.
