There are absolutely no improvements that I could suggest. This was the best training course I have ever attended.

The course went well above all of my expectations. The skills and knowledge that I developed in one day was valuable and relevant to my work. The practical exercises were excellent to slowly ease you into public speaking and presenting with confidence.

The facilitators made participants feel very comfortable and confident. I really liked that they acknowledged at the start that it was a big step for some people to even attend the training. It made a very good learning environment.

Fantastic training. David and Marianne were great in being able to build on strengths in people while identifying and encouraging them to work on their weaknesses. I learnt a lot about myself and certainly observed the changes in just the one day of training. Highly recommend it to anyone.


Great training course, I thoroughly enjoyed the day and got a lot from it. David and Marianne were fantastic facilitators. I recommend this course to anyone wanting to improve their presentation skills.


Fantastic workshop. I got so much from the session I attended, my confidence improved so much.

Could not fault Marianne/David, very professional, knew the content inside out and provided examples to content with case studies and real life experiences. Will strongly recommend the course to others. Thanks for the opportunity, a great experience!

Marianne and David provided a bit of both worlds, different styles, both very engaging. The small group allowed great individualised attention. I was impressed with how they handled the impact of an accent on  presentation; respectfully, practically and effectively. For me, the information on how to structure what I want to say was invaluable, it will really help me deliver complex subject matter to a critical audience. Fun format - I recommend Spruikit to help you shape up your presentation!

David and Marianne teach the essentials of presenting in a friendly, clear and thorough manner. The day starts with some interesting theory on presenting and moves into small practical exercises that are simple and effective in getting you to overcome your weaknesses and emphasize your strengths. Anyone who does this course will come away with a much better understanding of how to present effectively and more importantly confidence in their ability to present.
