"After several one-on-one private sessions with Taren and a couple of group improv workshops, I made leaps and bounds in my ability to give public presentations. I went from a public speaking "voice" to a more genuine, self-aware and personalized approach, both in and out of the corporate environment. Taren is not only a great teacher and extremely professional, but also perceptive in bringing out attributes in you, that you may not have recognized existed."
