Signature Speaking Programs
Thank you for facilitating this year’s diversity presentation. The RAs could not stop saying exciting and thought provoking things about the information you covered. The evaluation showed high marks - RAs scoring each question at a 4 or higher. The things they liked most about the presentation were: The L.U.C.A.S approach, learning the listening skills, the group activities and the style in which you deliver a presentation.

Again, thanks and I’ll be sure to keep you in mind for future sessions.
