“This has been the best learning event in my whole career…”

“I was very sceptical at the outset because I have been on many courses that promised much but did not deliver. This has been the best learning event in my whole career. Before doing it I found presenting nerve wracking and would physically shake. Even before the programme had finished I did a bid presentation using what I’d learned and won a significant 6 figure contract. It was not just about presenting but it was a fully holistic course on how you present yourself to everyone and how you are perceived and I now find that I use the techniques all the time. It has changed the way I interact with others and the benefits are far greater than I ever anticipated.”

Jo Phipson, Senior Relationship Manager, Santander UK

“Making the decision to come on this course was a big commitment for me but it was definitely worth it. I don’t think I’ve ever changed so much as a result of being on a training course before”

Sarah Jones, CEO, Mencap Liverpool

“I  found this course truly brilliant!”

Judy Adams, Global Support Services Director for Turner & Townsend, a global construction consultancy

“I think it’s fantastic to see what we’ve achieved in just over 20 hours…”

Wendy Maisey, Founder Director of ICC Solutions Ltd, Board Director of ACT Canada

“I was very sceptical about going on this course but have been amazed by how much I’ve learned”

“I was very sceptical about going on this course because it’s not my type of thing at all but I thought I’d give it a go and see what happens because we need to present a lot especially in Canada and America. I was actually amazed by how much I’ve learned and not only how to use it in presentations but throughout the working life. I’m using the techniques in team meetings, writing, in 1-2-1s. The amount I have got out of it is immense and I would certainly recommend it to everyone- you’ll be amazed at how much you get out of it.”

Paula Turner,Technical Manager at ICC Solutions Ltd.

“This is not just another presentations course. We had three days that were really inspirational and you get to share with fantastic people…”

Linda Minnis, CEO,The Charities Trust
