"Most will teach by explaining and describing. I teach by applying and demonstrating. Everything I teach is physical and easy to practice with lots of laughs and fun along the way. I also don't try to prove anything, I make you apply it in front of an audience and you can decide if it works...I believe that being a good communicator is a physical action you can practice. It's something you can learn the same way you learn how to kick a soccer ball." -Ivan Wanis Ruiz
