A lot of actionable steps that we can take into our day-to-day. Even the examples were very relatable. They were all things I can see happening in workplace settings.

I particularly found the physical presence, persuasion tool and redirecting questions helpful. I like that the workshop was super interactive. I think it helped me and it'll definitely help someone else. Highly recommended.

This was an overall great learning experience with actionable steps that I can use right away.

I took a workshop with Rachel to help me with public speaking. She had a wide variety of methods with which to teach me voice projection and confidence, amongst other things.

Rachel's improvisation based training was very enjoyable; I found that she is competent, confident and creative, and her great personality made the workshop relaxed and so much fun, yet packed with information and tools for further practice and learning.
