“The three-day Public Speaking and Communication Skills taught by Lisa Jeffery was exceptional. In 24 + years with the Library System, this class taught by Ms. Jeffery was possibly the best and most informative I have ever taken.  I learned A LOT, and each day was filled with new and informative information.  The teacher was a great asset, in that Ms. Jeffery has years of work and life experience in this area, and her enthusiasm was something to watch. Thanks for offering it.  Her techniques on how to organize a speech and speak extemporaneously should be offered to additional staff if funding permits, and administration will also enjoy her methods of teaching.”
Barbara Kirby, Branch Manager
Coral Gables Branch Library, Miami-Dade Public Library System
