"I would definitely recommend SpeakSmart to others, as in our opinion it is a professional and experienced team that will contribute to the success of the event.
Cooperation with 6 moderators (Margo Loor, Marleen Pedjasaar, Kaspar Kelder, Vladimir Svet, Kristina Mänd, Lauri Kriisa) went well. I really liked the preliminary work that the moderators did together with the Development Monitoring Center experts to conduct the workshop. It is also worth noting that the moderators did more than was expected of them, e.g. they also helped with the technical organization of the event on site." Kadri Mats, Arenguseire Keskus

"Everything went smoothly, we managed to keep everyone on topic in the discussion circle."
"I’m satisfied with the expertise of the instructor. I like that the instructor can give positive criticism and make suggestions so that members don't feel bad. For advanced/experienced members, he could have been even more critical."
