Since joining a Business Edge Speaking Group, I learned how to be a more poised and prepared speaker which lead to much more confidence and a marked difference in improvement of my speaking skills. It is a safe and constructive environment to practice your speaking skills, learn tips and speaking techniques, all while meeting and networking with professionals at a variety of organizations in the Twin Cities. I would highly recommend the Business Edge!

I highly recommend the Business Edge Speaking Group! It’s a safe environment to practice presenting and receive organized, constructive feedback from the facilitators and your peers.  I am not shy about getting up in front of a room full of people, but I definitely wanted to polish my presentation style.  The videos, practice and workshops provided during the program have given me that edge I was looking for when delivering an effective presentation, whether for 1-2 people or a room-full!
