Riza Macaibay, Foreign Service Training, Department of Tourism
I would like to thank Ms. Sheila and DOT for giving me this opportunity to participate in this training. This is the first training I have attended this year compared to my officemates. As a trainer, organizer and facilitator of trainings, this training is not just only an eye-opener but would capacitate me to be a better person and employee.
The program was planned and well-paced so far. I liked the exercises a lot especially on verb uses, pronoun and writing business letters.
Ms. Sheila and Mr. Michael are very knowledgeable about their topics and adapt well to the queries and demands of the participants. This experience made me realize that there are more to learn.

Kylee Doreene Plaza, Foreign Service Training, Department of Tourism
The program design is systematic and effective. Its content is relevant should the trainees be deployed overseas.  It also provides opportunities for practice through role playing.
The TalkShop Consultants are all professional and they work smart. They possess good communication and listening skills and are open to ideas of the trainees.   I was able to realize that we should continuously educate ourselves and enrich ourselves by reading books, watching educational videos, and exercising our communication skills constantly. 

Gary Nora Marie Gapas, Foreign Service Training, Department of Tourism
During the past 3 days, I’ve come to realize that my fear of public speaking is something I need to address.  With this seminar, I gained the courage to speak in front, improve my diction and writing skills. The program design is interesting, motivating, and something that we look forward to.  It is very useful and informative.
Ms. Sheila knows what she’s talking about. She’s a person who talks with integrity, a very good Speaker and Motivator. For the last 3 days my fear in addressing the public has lessened.   

   

Luz Navarro, Foreign Service Training, Department of Tourism
I learned a lot.  This is a very good opportunity for us who are already due for posting abroad as this would help us improve not only our speaking and writing skills but will help us in adjusting to our place of assignment.
The program is Communicating with Impact and Technical Writing. TalkShop Consultants have the expertise in the program designed and delivered the presentation in a manner that is expected, with materials needed to facilitate the topics effectively.

Manette Reyes, Foreign Service Training, Department of Tourism 
I came here with a little knowledge in foreign service but when I attended the seminar I learned a lot -from cultural diversities, technical writing, business etiquette, business letter writing, grammar and matters about sensibility.
I like everything about the program design. The Consultants are knowledgeable, good listeners, innovative, compassionate and willing to impart their expertise as Coaches and Consultants. I became more confident in talking in front.
