Presentation Skills Course Testimonials – Instant Replay Coaching

“I was particularly impressed with the way Tony transformed one participant. Their initial presentation was incredibly staged, almost acting out their speech. I felt completely disengaged. I was being talked at not communicated with. Tony picked up on this and guided the participant thought some ideas for improvement. I then became engaged in the presentation and was amazed how Tony’s suggestions completely changed the tone, passion and ease with which the participant genuinely engaged the audience!”
