LeeAundra Rules!

Whenever a new CPS goes up, it goes immediately to the top of my "to listen" list. LeeAundra is extremely informative on matters pertaining to public speaking, and keeps her presentations interesting. I learn somthing from everyone of her podcasts.

And she has great taste in bumper music!

Geoff Allen - iTunes Listener

Excellent Material

Great podcasts! Fairly short, yet very direct, timely and useful. I've sent many employees from my company to the website and picked out relevent podcasts that relate to various aspects of our business. And a nice music selection that remarkably complements the subject at hand. I don't know how she manages to find the perfect song everytime but she does it! Love it!
