I love this course. It's broken down to simple bits which makes it easy to understand. I didn't like the polls that pop up in the videos but that's just a small thing compared to the value I received.
The course was really helpful to strengthen communications skills and I got a chance to learn many new aspects. Thanks a lot for making this course available. I really enjoyed learning something new.

This course was so amazing! I've actually saved the videos because I love how the instructor put out his points. The best part is when you reach the end of the course and realize (have the a-ha! moment ;) ) that Mr. Ivan was in fact implementing every point he taught! Loved this course, would definitely recommend it.

Me pareció excelente! en pocas semanas y videos cortos recorrimos técnicas relevantes para mejorar nuestra comunicación verbal presencial y virtual, me pareció muy útil, actualizado, y muy práctico. Fue un reto para mi hacer el video en ingles practicando los aprendizajes y me siento muy bien por haberlo logrado.

Very useful, using lots of examples, which makes it better to understand and remember. Very refreshing video presentations by Ivan Ruiz, also the additional resources (readings and videos used are very funny, eye catching, not boring). I applied already many steps from this course during studying.

Very beneficial. One Caution, If you do not know how to make or use a U tube channel (private mode), you may want to figure that out while doing coursework. It is a requirement of submission for final. You also need ability to make a video and a powerpoint. Otherwise, fabulous class!

Ivan is a person you love to hear, he has mastered the art of communicating through a neuroscience and psychology research. Really worth it if you want to upgrade the way you relate with the people around you. He uses sale company examples, so that could be a plus to someone
