All the tips were relevant to developing my communication. The part that was most useful was developing the purpose of my speech and all the techniques that will make me connect to my audience.
A fantastic course!
This course was of enormous benefit to me as it helped me to structure my speeches, simplify the core message and use body language.
Most importantly, I was able to break my business message down to 4 powerful words that are clear and easy to remember, and can be used to brand my business. I am now able to speak confidently about my business services to anyone!
The trainer, Charmaine, created a class which was very supportive, fun, positive and passionate.
I would encourage everyone I know to participate in this course as it’s been a great way to learn to speak with confidence and develop essential communication skills.
I’d just like to say how much I’m enjoying this class. I love the fact that everyone is sharing something of themselves through their stories, which we so rarely see in social or class situations.
You really do make it such a safe and supportive environment that I feel my confidence boosting with every class.
I was just commanding my students, not communicating with them, but you brought out the real me inside! We all have this skill but it’s people like you only can bring it out and make it useful.
There is a great need for your courses. Great. Great. Great.
Learning public speaking was extremely beneficial to me because I learnt to answer impromptu questions, be comfortable in my own skin and own my space.
A sincere thank you to Charmaine, the Trainer. She has a gift of explaining things in a way that is very understandable and I was able to see things in a different light. It’s helped me in almost every aspect of my life!
GREAT experience, great environment and a well worth the investment. I liked the constructive feedback, learning in a safe environment and trying new things that I normally wouldn’t risk doing.
Most people would pay a lot more money to learn and improve from your training. Excellent value… I think you should even charge more for your sessions!!
Great trainer and course. I really enjoyed all aspects. The time went quickly but it was definitely worthwhile.
I learned about structuring and presentation efficiency, how to improve delivery and boost confidence.
Communication skills improved dramatically and confidence ZOOMED!
Great inspiring tutor – motivating – great set of people, all encouraging and enthusiastic. Loved it!
Fantastic course! Charmaine is a beautiful person and great coach.
I can’t believe how much we all learned! Excellent results.
