What 30MinutePREP-method students have to say...

Beckie Perez

Oklahoma Wesleyan University

"I gave a lot of speeches and it helped me not only learn and develop the speaking skills I was lacking, but gave me the confidence to be a highly effective speaker, equipped for any setting."

Axel Richardson

Mt. San Antonio College

"All the current event topics and tons of required practice gave me chances to test myself, in regards to thinking on my feet. It also encouraged me to stay up to date with what's going on in the world, so I could find ways to better myself, as well as those around me."

Alec Bleher

Palomar College

"This unique approach taught me to think quickly and speak effectively no matter the topic. I didn't learn to prepare a speech in a clean vacuum, I learned to speak in a messy and ever-changing world."
