Course testimonials:

  • Jordan said: Sense of achievement by facing my fears. Turns out it's not that scary when you're prepared. Thanks Rob!

  • Chris said: I enjoyed engaging with other students in our quest to be better presenters. To this end, Rob provided an effective and pleasant atmosphere to work in. Rob exchanged valuable insights and methods for me to work on. As you would be aware this course could be offered over a period of weeks to gain extra competency, and I would not hesitate to continue with Rob concerning this training, notwithstanding I strongly recommend this course in its current format. Nice work indeed ! Chris

  • Jae said: Rob was great. Very entertaining, funny and kind with great ideas to improve my speech.
