"When I saw the invoice my initial thought was 'uhoh, if it's this cheap, then it's going to be a waste of a day.'" My first impressions totally blew away my initial expectations and I can say that the experience was worth far more than I paid. I can definitely say that this was hands down, the best course I have attended. Funny. Informative. Experience."
Vance Flavell, Business Analyst, Genesis Energy
"The course presented new ideas in a non-threatening environment and left me feeling energised about re-writing my presentations - thank you."
Kahla Parkash, Principal Advisor, Inland Revenue
"I had been reading about what you covered (often from your blogs!) but listening and working through the exercises on the day really made it click in my brain. Can't wait to use it now as it much easier than I thought to put in practice."
Marilyn Moffatt, Society of Local Government Managers
"This course was really great value for money; the environment was welcoming, the presentation and content was engaging and logical - and the day really flew by!"
Alpha Woolrich, Risk Manager, ACC
"You dealt to the nervous customer well, I did not feel under any pressure to perform as I have in previous courses. As a result I threw off my inhibitions and gave it a go! Great fun."
Caroline Jones, Foster Care Project Co-ordinator, Parents Inc
"I came to this course having done a few presentations with no training at all. I thoroughly enjoyed the course - Tony & Olivia made it fun and easy to follow. I was given the tools I need to be able to write a presentation and deliver it well. I now feel confident to actually OFFER to give presentations. I thought I would come away with some skills, but did not expect the course to change my view of presenting. I now see presenting in a much more positive way and am looking forward to putting what I have learnt into practice. Thanks Tony and Olivia. I have already recommended this course to others."
Natalie Alabaster, Parents Inc
"The course was fantastic. I expected it to be good, it was better. The instructors had some really great tips covering off how you should structure your presentation was invaluable, plus the tools for reducing nervousness and fear will really help. I also found the tips on delivery helpful plus the pointers on Power point slides. The rest of the group also enjoyed it, really glad we went. I can't promise to be a superstar presenter but I feel a lot more confident now."
Rachel Donaldson, Fulton Hogan
"I knew it was going to be good but during the course I thought 'this is above my expectations'. I am really happy I took the course and I could see others around enjoying it as well. Confidence is no longer just for others but actually within my reach."
Veronica Lazzaro Vargas, Research Analyst, Statistics New Zealand
"I would rate this as one of the top courses I have ever attended and have already recommended it to others. Tony and Olivia were a fantastic team who really complemented each other."
