Brilliant 5 weeks – Nadia, Estate Agent
Thank you for a brilliant 5 weeks. I thoroughly enjoyed each week which was a big surprise as previously the thought of public speaking was torture! The reason I signed up for the course was to push me out of my comfort zone and I really didn’t think I was going to enjoy it half as much as I did. The lessons were thoughtfully planned and productive and at no point did I think “I’m wasting my time here.” Your feedback was always constructive and positive and the rest of the group were welcoming and supportive. This course has not only changed the way I speak publicly but also has made me change how I talk to people on a one-to-one basis; it has also made our internal meetings much more engaging! I would encourage anyone to give it a go as you are guaranteed to get something out of it.
The ‘fear’ is already starting to pack it’s bags – Caroline
“Just 1 week in to your 5 week course and I cannot rate you highly enough. That ‘fear’ I spoke of is already starting to pack it’s bags! By week 5 it may just have moved right on out! Regardless, you have begun to give me the tools for presentation success despite the fear. Thank you!!”
New Lease of Life in my Speaking – James, Director, Property Company
I’ve just completed a fantastic 5-week Virtual Public Speaking with Walter Blackburn at Presenting Success. As an experienced speaker I’ve been speaking for a number of years to property investors about the market but was finding that by speaking about the same thing I needed a new lease of life. I definitely got this from the course. We learnt how to construct a speech from beginning to end including how to stand and present in the ‘power position’. Walter definitely went above and beyond the call of duty on service, communication and quality. The course was excellent. I thoroughly recommend his services.
Speaking with Ease and Confidence – Tom, University student, 1st Year
“At the beginning I tried to keep an open mind, given that I had little presenting experience but I did have doubts to the relevance of the course to me as a university student. However Walter was welcoming and made me feel at ease from the start and we began fairly gently in order to build confidence. I gained valuable knowledge on how to give a talk with ease and confidence using the building blocks and main structure to all presentations which Walter taught us. By the end of the course I understood how the techniques that I learned for presenting would also be relevant in other aspects such as a corporate meeting. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone looking to build a number of skills regarding presenting and also grow in confidence in themselves”.
Ability and Confidence in Speaking – Rosie, University student, 2nd year
“Before embarking on this training course I was very apprehensive and quite nervous. I’m in my second year at Uni and don’t have much experience speaking in public, and I was worried about being the weak link in the group. However with Walter’s support and positive feedback I found my ability and confidence in speaking grow more and more as the weeks went on. It’s a very methodical course with new skills being learnt each week. Not only do I believe this course has helped me from a career point of view, but also on a personal level with how I interact with people around me. I can’t recommend this course highly enough for anyone seeking to improve their ability to talk in public and gain valuable skills to improve their confidence”.
