Storytelling for Success: Pitch, Present & Persuade
Reviewed by Ryan S. on 10/3/2019
Great class overall! My only critical feedback is that because a few of us had a hard stop at the scheduled time, the end felt rushed and it seemed we didn't get to everything the instructor had planned. Class was informative and engaging.
