"I found Hazriq's techniques on improving my presentation skills extremely valuable. I was able to take a whole new approach to a keynote lecture I was asked to give at a conference. Even though I had presented many times before and thought that I was a skilled presenter, Hazriq was able to introduce me to more creative ways to present. He allowed me to connect to the audience and share my experience rather than just present the facts. I strongly recommend Hazriq and will definitely invite him to give a workshop at our next conference in Singapore"

"... Thank you for teaching me such a simple and fun way of speaking in public. As I mentioned to you when we met, I was getting ready for my big day. I knew I wanted to say something, at least to thank my guests. And so the time came and I found myself delivering my simple message in a calm and natural way. I grabbed that mic and I started talking! I thought I was going to get very nervous, but I didn't! I practiced mentally and used pauses, and looking at different parts and people in the audience. Plus it helped to remember that they are my friends after all, and the worse that can happen is that they laugh at my mishap and that would not be a big deal.... And for that, I have to Thank You Hazriq. I have no doubt that when the time comes, I'll be seeking your assistance again."
