Course testimonials:

  • said: Rob was very engaging, didn't spend too much time boring us with notes - focused on more practical and hands-on exercises while using the notes as a guide. Much more useful than just reading through stuff. Outside of the tutor, the venue was slightly disappointing. Room too small for the group's needs on both weeks and whiteboard didn't clear properly. This caused issues for a number of speakers during their presentations.

  • said: Rob was great. Really engaging and gave some useful tips and tricks.

  • 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
