Thank you very much for the excellent class on memoir-writing! I learned more in your half-day class than I did in a semester-long course at the University of Texas.

“Argue Effectively” was a really great class full of great insights and interactivity. I liked the examples and the chances to practice. I liked that we talked about communication in writing, speech, and even our body language. Great teacher and great learnings!
