Mark Weaver’s classes range from small sessions where everyone can get hands-on practice to arena size audiences who attend to learn to communicate more effectively.


We put participants through real-life training. Here, Ryan Stubenrauch videos while a class member is interviewed in a mock exercise. The interviewer is Colleen Marshall, the TV news anchor for NBC4 in Columbus, Ohio.
