Testimonials:

"Fantastic tutor – we went in the course expecting to learn about Power point presentations and how to deliver a good presentation. But we learnt more about ourselves and how to bring what we have and the passion that we possess to infect those listening to our presentations. We learnt eye contact and how to connect with our audience, strategies in presenting to a small or large audience, body language, to breath and be still in ourselves to bring focus to us as speakers rather than deflecting focus to something external e.g Power Point. We learnt how to slow down our speech and create a story with meaning and bring feeling to what we say…" - Confident and Creative Presentation Skills participant.
