I thoroughly enjoyed the course and l learned so much. I would also like to add that in addition to presenting to larger groups, the skills have also assisted me in my general day to day work including holding briefings, meetings and even interacting with small groups in a confident, informative and structured way. The skills are very transferable.

In my role l have attended so many courses over the years but for me this ranks as one of the best. It was exactly what l hoped it would be.

l have today received a letter of thanks from the senior management team describing a presentation l conducted on the 18th November as being 'exceptional'.

It is great to be able to put these new skills into practice in my work, which boosts my confidence to get out there and grab every presenting opportunity!
