Acclaim with Impact

Bloomberg - Presentation Skills Training

"Boring and time consuming is what initially sprung to mind...well these things usually are aren't they?!

"Fast forward to the Presentation Workshop and words such as 'fun', 'interesting' and 'insightful' replaced prior conceptions. Surely our manager had made a mistake...was this really the grey and corporate Presentation workshop we were supposed be attending?"

"Dannie and David were refreshingly empathetic and honest as well as motivating and encouraging. A valuable lesson to be taken away from the session was that presenting does not have to be one dimensional in the corporate world. In short, we were pushed to think outside of the confines of the corporate box."

BG GROUP - Communicate With Impact Course

BG GROUP - Communicate With Impact

"I still marvel at the session we did on working a room. Tina Lamb gave a lesson that made a huge impact on everyone there. And, by the way, she did it in a masterful way. It was a master class on master classes.

"Our leaders on the programme were very, very good, they stood out from the crowds of people who purport to be communicators because they were phenomenal communicators; they were very effective and ultimately they delivered huge impact on us."

Dave Key
Crisis Readiness Manager

APM Terminals - Communicate With Impact Course

"It was great to be in a place where emphasis was on positive feedback. Many people we encounter in our daily work focus in on the negatives and dragging people down which hardly gets your brain buzzing. I can honestly say that in my twenty years of working life this course was one where I have taken so much away and learned a great deal about myself and my capabilities. On other courses normally I would take away a binder full of copied presentation slides" 

Christopher Styles 

Projects and Development Manager - APM Terminals
