Dynamic Deliveries:

It was great to dedicate time into learning how to develop presentation skills and presence in front of an audience.

The course was pitched appropriately to a range of careers.

I will be forwarding the usefulness of the course onto management- for both staff and developing students.

Excellent course. Really impressed and has helped me with a genuine fear.

Rachel, Engie, Newcastle



Dynamic Deliveries:

The real life stories helped to show how emotions can be hidden and that nerves do not always show.

the number of presentations helped to re-enforce lessons learnt.

Key learning points for me: arrows pointing out, involve the audience, make it like a conversation, be aware of body language and above all… SLOW DOWN!



Health and Safety:

Excellent training and trainer. Very knowledgeable.
