Public Speaking Course in Canberra - Feedback:

The training, presentation and content of this public speaking course was excellent. I have learned how to project my voice, structure my speeches to stay on track and speak off the cuff.

Learning how to organise my ideas was wonderful. Also having to get up and speak lots throughout the course was challenging, but very good! It was fun, interesting and tailored - aimed at the experienced professional, rather than a newbie.
Nicki Doble, Snr IT Manager, Suncorp

I put myself out there with confidence to increase the volume of my voice and used gestures. I have improved in all areas of my public speaking skills. Thank you.

I urge you to come and enjoy new friends, learn about new topics and experience a new you!

The feedback about your Presentation Training has been excellent. The team was very positive about the session, its content and the fact they were skilled instead of subjected to death by PowerPoint!  Success all round, I would say!
I used the breathing and stance techniques the next day to increase my confidence before fronting a presentation of my own. Clearly your techniques worked. I have been told by several people that I was easily the best speaker of the day!  So THANK YOU!

Charmaine Burke is an excellent trainer and very positive. She gave us all the tips and confidence to improve our public speaking. Knowing how to open and close my speech, stand in front of an audience, use appropriate body language and relate to my audience was challenging, but extremely beneficial.
