description

A lot of students in China lack the ability of communicate, which may prevent them from accessing decent jobs. Many students aspire to achieve their goals but require more assertiveness and confidence in order to support their aspirations. Through practicing public speaking, they can re-examine their lives, find their own values and learn how to confidently stand on the stage.

We will work with different schools who will be paying and sponsoring all the materials. The teachers and career consultants are experienced and carefully selected. We mainly train students on speech and communication related skills.

We believe speech and communication skills are crucial for youth’s career development, daily life, and business initiatives.  Learning about speech is not only about the techniques, but also about the soft skills and the experience gained through this process.
