“I was scared about my pitch and the negotiation part of the pitch. However, you helped me prepare for it and figure out what was wrong with my project. We were all much better off during the presentation and the pitch because of your help.”
— Student
“It was extremely helpful when you helped us delegate jobs, and at that point, it set a direction for our group. You also helped us with negotiating,
and I appreciated how clear you were when telling us what to do and what not to do, you even drew out a diagram on the sheet of paper. Thank You!”
