"Few professors get trained in techniques for public speaking. Even though I had years of teaching and speaking experience, I was finding my voice strained at the end of an hour or two of lecturing to larger classes.... Since my training sessions with Bruce, I have become aware of my own physical readiness to speak on a given day. I have improved my lecturing style a great deal and seldom feel in danger of straining my voice."
