Testimonials for the Public Speaking Camps & Workshops
It was a good experience for the kids. Lucas bloomed and has more confidence. The effort the kids put into preparing and presenting their speeches is highly commendable. I was surprised that he practiced hard on his own without any grumbles when he did not want to attend the camp initially. It helped my child build confidence in public speaking. I saw a difference in him. Thanks for the guidance.
Initially we were not sure whether or not to send our son to your camp as it was his PSLE year and he was not doing very well in his studies. We were getting complaints from his teachers. We are delighted that the camp made him to believe in himself and dream bigger. He became more interested and more focused in his studies. He scored A* for all subjects and to us that is a miracle.
Excellent programme to build the confidence and to learn about important techniques of public speaking. The graduation speech is the highlight of the course!
It helped my son to build his confidence, at the same time he enjoyed his lessons.
My daughter has never been to such a course. She has never experienced such a fun way to learn. After every class she will go to her friend next door and for the next 3 hours she would share what she learned that day! I regret not sending my other daughter for this camp when she was at the right age for it.
What I liked the most about this camp was that each child was encouraged to be confident through close interactions with the coaches.
If I could, I want to spend my entire holidays in this public speaking camp. It is super awesome! I learnt a lot and will never repeat my old mistakes during school presentations.
Ever since my son became a teenager, it has been hard to make him focus on his studies. So I was surprised to see him diligently prepare and practice his speeches for the public speaking camp. It was as if he suddenly became possessed by something.
Children were given feedback about their areas of improvement - specific improvements for each of them. They built their own speeches over the 5 days. They prepared their speeches without help from adults. I enjoyed their graduation speeches a lot.
If you are looking for a training to teach your kids 'public speaking' look no further. Mine both attended the Kidz Parade holiday camp. They learnt important strategies of public speaking, wrote their own speech and presented the speech in front of an audience at the end of the week. There was a big improvement in eye contact, gestures, posture and confidence. The program really deserves a shoutout. If you have no plans for the next holidays, then this is something you will not regret.
Seeing my daughter present in front of a group of strangers for the first time with confidence was amazing. We definitely have no regrets signing up Tiffani for this one week camp.
Both my kids, Aryan n Arusha attended the public speaking camp which was extremely good. It brought about quite a change in their confidence levels and helped remove their inhibitions.Those 5 days they were fully charged and involved in researching, practicing and working on their speech delivery style. I am extremely happy with the improvement brought about by the course. It was definitely time well spent.
Thank you for all your efforts and enthusiasm. Wishing Kidz Parade all the very best in their future endeavors.
I learnt to be more confident, how to form an impromptu speech and the important framework of making a speech. The workshop has improved my confidence, speaking and gestures. The coach is very understanding towards us and always gives us a second chance. I liked the activities in the workshop.

Children's confidence increased multiple folds in this camp. The techniques you taught about public speaking are very impressive. We could see Shruti improve a lot in this camp.
I learned to speak in front of public and to be confident. The coach was fun and encouraging and I liked the activities, confidence building and speaking in front of the class in this workshop. I can use these skills in the future and also when I am at a job interview.
11 year old Bryan Teo
I was very skeptical when I send Jyothir [10yr] for the 1 week kids public speaking camp as I have already sent him for few other essential life skill classes, but not showed any improvement whatsoever. I am really happy that I made the right choice, the team did a wonderful job and now he's more confident and joins the discussion in the class . Class size is small so the kids get individual attention and they have to prepare their own speech which I think is really good. It brings out the creativity in them and they present it in front of all on the last day of camp . Thank you for all the effort and support .Would definitely recommend this camp .
I am ready to speak to 2000 people!
The encouragement and cheers given to the kids were really good. The kids also had a successful performance on stage. This is the stage that leads to future success. Thank for all the efforts from you.
The coach was kind. I learned how to battle stage fright and learned different types of breathing. I liked the confidence building and activities in this workshop. The workshop helps me in preparing for my speeches.
Kids opened up with their ideas and their confidence level has gone up
The public speaking course conducted was an awesome experience for my daughter. A different aspect to learning a new skill. Thank you.
The most interesting part of this camp was the opportunity given to kids to speak openly in front of an audience. This will help them to overcome the nervousness before they have to do presentations. The graduation speeches were planned very well. We could see the efforts put in by the kids, Coach Manoj and other coaches.
You do not focus on ‘teaching’ the child, you focus on ‘transforming’ the child. That’s what makes your camp special. I will surely send my elder son too for the next camp.
I learned the confidence building and the workshop helps me to speak more in public. The coach speaks very well.
It was great to see the children speak with confidence, creativity and commitment. I liked the structure, schedule and the preparatory work for the camp.
My child transformed from timid to confident over the course of this camp. Earlier she used to shy away from opportunities. Now, she is more participative in the class, stand for student leader elections and takes part actively in Model United Nations. The main difference in the 'before' and 'after' is she understands the need for being confident and articulate in groups and she considers it is her responsibility to take charge of these areas. Your coaching has made a transformatory effect on my child. Thank you for your efforts and individual focused coaching style.
Thanks for your magic! My daughter really loved all the sessions and she speaks confidently now. I am pretty sure things will change from now for the better.
I liked speaking in front others, confidence building and talking louder in this class. The coach speaks loud and comments good things about our speeches. I learned to speak louder and be confident when speaking.
I found a major difference in my son's attitude. He was coerced to attend the camp, but he ended up enjoying the camp.
My son was shy and afraid of speaking. He did not want to speak in the class at all. It was an emotional moment for us when we heard him giving his graduation speech in front of the audience. We have sent him for many courses before. In fact, we were thinking about sending him to a therapist before we came across your program. But, your camp changed him. His teacher told me that he is communicating in the class now and is more confident. Now, he tells me he is not afraid of speaking any more. Thanks to you for the effort, I am sure it was not easy.

I learned how to adjust tone, pitch and the volume of my voice while speaking and diaphragmatic breathing. I liked the coach's confidence and the way she made me interested in the topic. I also enjoyed listening to other people's speeches. In secondary school, I can use these skills to speak up.

The most interesting thing about this camp was the idea of getting the kids to talk, think and present their ideas. I liked the graduation speeches very much. Kids are really doing their best and the ideas are very noble and hopeful
It was amazing. Never expected that the kids can do the speech very well in a humorous way. My girl is really excited and she was doing her practices without any obligation. She is really confident and smart after this camp.
What I like the most about this camp is the confidence given to my child. Awesome speeches by kids. Keep going.
My son has built his confidence and knows how to express his opinions. Graduation speeches were very enjoyable.
My daughter attended the Kidz Parade holiday camp. She was very excited about camp after first day itself and after coming back home was talking about her learning on each day. It was great to hear from her about her learning with excitement.
She learnt important strategies of public speaking, think and wrote about their innovations in story form. Later they presented in front of an audiences at the end of camp in the presence of all parents. I was able to notice difference in gestures, posture and confidence while speaking. Camp was not only about speaking but also it made them think, understand team work and share ideas.

What I liked the most about the camp was the confidence gained by the children. The graduation speeches were really good. Look forward to the next holiday workshop.
With only a short 3 days, kids could come on stage to do a presentation in front of an audience is amazing. Coach Sindu is very enthusiastic and amazing. She follows up and helps with the fitting of the program schedule. The class size is small, so the kids get good personal attention.
Kids enjoyed the lesson. It is amazing to see the kids' graduation presentations.
The camp was great, best in a short period of time. The kids enjoyed it. Children were being able to observe their friends' performances, give feedback and learn from it. It was great in spite of them being so young. The graduation presentation was a free flow of ideas. It was wonderful to see them speak up so confidently. Keep doing what you are doing.
The most remarkable part of this camp is the confidence that is fostered in each child and the encouragement given to express their ideas. I enjoyed their graduation speeches thoroughly.
The creativity part where the kids were taught skills on how to come up with their own speeches is amazing.
I enjoyed the graduation speeches thoroughly. Really appreciate the daily feedback. Thanks for putting it together.
The camp was positive, enjoyable, fun and engaging. The graduation presentations were informative and entertaining. Thank you for all your positive encouragement. Really appreciate it.
The whole thought process of letting the kids develop their ideas and converting that into a brilliant speech is what keeps this camp apart. I loved watching the little ones coming up to the stage and expressing themselves. This camp is already perfect, nothing to improve. Just keep doing what you are doing.
It is a good starting point for kids to be great public speakers of tomorrow. Look forward to enrol my daughter in your upcoming weekly workshops.

So delighted to get my hands on the great magazine for kids that inspires, plants good thoughts, promotes awareness for world issues that all children should know about and feel for and most importantly gives every kid the opportunity for self expression – to shine like a star in so many ways, to unleash their creativity, hone their aptitudes and capture their imagination. Kudos to the publishers, creative heads and editors of this must-have magazine.
Noella Menon, author of ‘When I grow up’ & noted voice over artist
I tried in vain almost all types of books to encourage my children to read. It was my daughter’s teacher who recommended The Kidz Parade for improving her vocabulary. Not only my kids are reading The Kidz Parade now. They are showing interest in writing. Thank you Team Kidz Parade.
A mother of 3
The Kidz Parade is a wonderful way of boosting one’s confidence. Thanks for playing such an important role in a child’s life who has talent but is unable to let it out in one way or other.
A mother whose one child is in a local school and the other in an international school
My kids received the latest issue of The Kidz Parade. Both of them devour it.

This the kind of publication I always wanted to start for my students.
A teacher from a large primary school
How far can a couple of seemingly insignificant writings and illustrations by kids go? You’d be surprised.
One of the best parts of Kidz Parade is that there are millions of genres of stories, such as mystery, fantasy, realistic, adventure, action, horror, comedy, something for everybody.To me, receiving a new copy of The Kidz Parade is like a little girl getting a new doll, a painter getting new acrylics and a bee finding a flower.
