Client Reviews

This course provided a significant psychological shift for me; that presenting/public speaking could be something I can learn, rather than it be a “no-go” area. I feel I can move on from a past presenting nightmare now!

Having felt fear in the past each time I have to present to large groups, for the first time, I now feel like I have the tools, understanding and ability to approach presentations and conquer my fear. I’m actually EXCITED at the concept of conquering my next presentation. I feel a real shift in how I know consider presentations and can’t wait to nail the next one!

Excellent – (the course has) given me a lot more confidence to do presentations. It has put nerves in their place!

(The course) was EXACTLY what I was hoping we would learn: how to be clear and persuasive, to influence and get buy-in/action from a group/audience. There was something to learn for everyone, from complete beginners to experienced presenter.

I felt like it was relevant to all of our staff, which is great. In the past we have had presenters come in and the content was not so relevant to some people. But Jane made it relevant to everyone in attendance.

With an overwhelming amount of info available on good public speaking, I was a bit sceptical on how useful or new the info in this course would be. It really ended up being the one of the most practical and applicable courses I’ve taken, with a fresh take on what it means to be an effective speaker. Really good mix of theory and hands on learning/practicing.

It was great, one of the best courses I have been on. Great insights into how I can improve my public speaking that were really personalised in the coaching parts. Loved it.

Really great course, no pressure environment with a good mix of interactive and book work. Have walked away feeling more confident in how I am going to put my presentations together.

The format of the course was engaging and there was a great balance between listening, engaging and participating. I look forward to using the skills used… presenting at the next Hui about the course!

I find that 9 our of 10 courses i attend are not worthwhile. This was the 1 in 10 that was!

It was a great practical session that immediately provided useful tools and suggested improvements for my future presentations.

I found this by far the best course for teaching practical examples on how to structure a presentation. As a company it will be very valuable to have a consistent approach to how we prepare and deliver presentations. We now have a common language to use through our business. We will be putting it into practice from today.

The course is awesome. The balance between talk time, practical learning and feedback is perfect. A very polished and well-planned course.

Hard to put into words how useful this course was – finds the perfect balance of providing tools and then extending you out of your comfort zone to use them in a supportive way.

I have never been in such a well run course (I’ve done a lot). I feel we all learnt so much and I will definatley be taking her advice on how I can improve myself.

I honestly think it’s the best course I’ve been on in my 4 years with WCC.

The best course I have ever done. Jane was fantastic, the material and structure was interesting and engaging. I’ll be recommending to everyone here at MOE.
