Hands on confidence builder before a presentation at a conference. Lynne was clear, with excellent timing and top tips. Lynne brought the learning to life. Thank you!
Andrea worked well with the team. I needed a formula for preparing presentations and now I have one! The content we gained was invaluable, especially the websites and the authors to look up later.
The course was very informative and interesting. I have taken lots of new tips and skills that I will use moving forward. I learnt how to engage the group more and tips to improve my delivery.
Matt was a very engaging presenter who imparted a huge amount of practical information & tips to take away and implement immediately in our presentations.
Simon really listened and paid attention to each of our individual strengths and areas we needed to work on and gave us all helpful constructive feedback. I look forward to implementing new ways to connect with my partners. Interactive - works well in an online format split into 2 sessions. Thank you so much for your mentorship over the last 2 sessions - found the content super helpful and the tools that we can further develop to our presenting skills.
Exceptionally engaging and challenging course that encourages all to have a go and improve. Simon is a full professional with obvious experience. Very engaging.
Simon was an engaging facilitator and would evolve the topics and questions as we asked. He was personable to each of us and help us all along on our individual journeys no matter how anxious or professional we appeared. Really enjoyed the session!
My knowledge was sound but practical experience/techniques needed. Paddy presented, created rapport and made the whole thing much more ‘connectable’. I found the course very beneficial. This is one of the best PDs I have attended.
Paddy is a great facilitator with a fantastic learning style. I have completed the course with newly developed skills. Paddy is fun, entertaining, approachable, knowledgeable and always professional. I learnt a lot from him over the two days. This course was a great intro into developing the skills to Present with Confidence. Paddy was a fantastic facilitator. Would highly recommend! I appreciated that we were asked what we wanted out of the course prior to commencing (survey). I felt like everything I mentioned in survey was addressed.
Great workshop; well-paced with clear and concise information. Lynne’s engaging personality meant that the workshop was lively and interactive. The workshop provides practical skills that will improve my presentation skills and confidence.
Andrea was very engaging and approachable. Her workbook was excellent and she helped me to remind me of the importance to plan and keep the presentation concise and exciting.
Paddy was very knowledgeable, experienced and practical. Very engaging, helpful, experienced, practical, funny and informative. Paddy was creative and used different training techniques (eg.whiteboard, butchers paper, TED video example, role playing). He was fantastic and I would recommend this course.
Not only was it a fun 2 days, but I learnt some powerful tools that I will certainly use in the future to enable me to me a more "focussed & fun" trainer. I would also highly recommend this course to anyone planning to "tread the carpet" in front of audiences, or to further their "quiver of tools" moving forward. Thanks to Lynne - the two days were one of the best "work days" that I have had, thank you.
This was the most practical training I have received. This session has taught me things I will take away and utilise for a long time. Mark was extremely engaging.
I have already filled out the feedback you sent us but I wanted to provide a little more in terms of the impact it has had. The week after the workshop I gave a couple of presentations at the Grad induction. So much of what Simon went through with us was relevant. In particular the way to craft a presentation quickly (the stem plan), his advice on slides and the discussion around impact statements and presence. I tried out all of the above and am pleased to say it worked incredibly well! I’m conscious that positive feedback is not always highlighted and so I wanted to see if you could pass this on to Simon. He definitely had an impact on all of us and we have discussed things we’ve learned since the workshop several times with everyone agreeing it was one of the most impactful and useful workshops we’ve done at Specsavers.
After course I feel more confident and able to put together an engaging presentation. Paddy is an excellent, engaging, professional teacher – informative, fun, able to comprehensively answer any questions posed.
Paddy is a great guy. Knowledgeable and professional. The course has me feeling a lot more confident about my upcoming presentation.
The course really took it to another level and has 100% addressed what I wanted to get out of this course. The facilitator was excellent and really worked to build a friendly, encouraging and constructive environment.
Lynne delivered an excellent 2 day session. It was informative and very worthwhile. Her technique and knowledge are outstanding. The session was very enjoyable and I would recommend this to anyone. Thanks.
Fantastic program - very rarely do we host training that participants want to extend or wish lasted longer, but that's the response this writing, presenting and communicating with influence course received.
I got so much out of today. I was extremely nervous coming in on the first day. Justine was so welcoming personable and knowledgeable. I really did push myself out of my comfort zone and got a lot in return. Would recommend to everyone.
The program was extremely well tailored to my needs and David explained it in a way which was easy to comprehend. I am feeling a lot more confident in my ability.
Great program and facilitator. David was entertaining, engaging and challenging – learned a huge amount from David over the last two days.
Simon was great in motivating us to be more confident when we speak. He was full of great little tips to stop the bad habits some of us had while presenting. There were so many great little presenting tips that I feel will help me out in the future and be more confident while presenting.
Thank you, Mark! Great day and very useful. Heaps of relevant and useful tips and formulas. Mark is a great facilitator – interactive, engaging and knowledgeable.
Matthew was a fantastic presenter, it was a great workshop. The training was most enjoyable. It was delivered in a professional but relaxed manner.
Mark has a great presentation style. Very engaging and great use of stories and games to keep you engaged. The workshop did deliver great skills and points that I will use for my next presentation.
Lynne’s workshops are always fantastic – was so pleased to see her at the front of the room when I walked in! Walked out of the session feeling like I had learnt a lot and had fun doing it. Lynne is so friendly, positive and engaging. Lynne really wants us to learn and succeed.
This session was highly informative and made a big difference when giving our final presentation. Simon was both a great teacher and an excellent example of what great presenting should be.
David really helped me achieve more direction and motivation about my role. The program added value to my role as a trainer and challenged existing perspectives on training. I found everything useful particularly engagement over content.
I’ve done several presentation courses but this one was the best! Very knowledgeable and effective trainer, great takeaway practical take away points.
The course was really good. Mark was well experienced and happy to provide as much information as he could. I was happy with the content of the course.
Justine is clearly passionate about Presenting – this combined with her knowledge made the course infectious.
The course and facilitator were great, would recommend to everyone within BMW. I have gained confidence in knowing what to do, makes a difference.
Mark is an excellent facilitator and his courses are always practical and enjoyable. It was great to practice, receive feedback and learn effective ways to structure and deliver a presentation. Mark was engaging, kept it moving and creates a safe learning environment.
This is not your average communication training session. If you want some real skills that will help you personally and professionally this is it! Suzanne was brilliant. Highly engaging and brought light to some very interesting thoughts and methods. I thought I had some skills in this are but I’ve been turned on my head. Mindblowing information and learnings. I would have liked another day (I would never normally say this).
Very informative session that will definitely support me in giving more engaging presentations. Mark has lots of knowledge, tips and energy.
Really enjoyed how interactive the day was. It was very engaging and made me think more about the way I communicate. Mark was really engaging and fun. He looked to use for answers; wasn’t a lecture. Really showed how ice breakers work.
Suzanne was fantastic, lovely, very entertaining and extremely knowledgeable. I found the program very beneficial. Will help me become more confident when presenting at workshops and addressing landholders, peers and industry bodies. Fantastic couple of days. Very constructive. Would highly recommend to others wishing to build on or improve their written and communication skills
Definitely feel more confident and I’m able to add content to my presentation. Graham adapts to all learning styles quite well.
Graham knows what he’s on about. Gave me confidence in speaking.
The Presenting with Impact Course far exceeded my expectations and I now feel more confident when presenting and have developed many helpful tools to create a punchy presentation.
Justine is great, she is positive & engaging and she has provided us with valuable tips and taught us a lot about presenting with impact. I would recommend this course to my colleagues, this is a great course. Thanks very much, for fantastic course, Justine.
