Comments from previous participants


“I have attended your Outstanding Presentations Workshops for at least 5 years. I’ve even paid for them out of my own pocket in the past because they are that good. Over the years, I have truly developed my craft because of things I’ve learned in these workshops. I’ve created a niche for myself in my company because of the skills I’ve learned! I’m grateful to you and the sponsors for making these workshops available.” — Donna Cunningham l Communication Specialist

I was unable to attend the live session but I sat down to watch the recording today. I wanted to take a moment to thank you for offering the training webinar. You covered a lot of material in a clear and concise manner. You demystified some of the PowerPoint presentations I have previously been in awe of.  It was truly a valuable use of my time so I wanted to send you a note to let you know how much I appreciate the work you put into it.” — Andrea Salem

“I was educated, motivated and inspired by the presentations. Attending the webinars has honestly rekindled my passion for what I do and I am attacking the rehaul of my presentations with renewed vigour. I feel ‘ahead of the curve’ in terms of what I can offer my learners in my presentation skills and leadership courses and that adds to my feeling of professionalism as well as giving me added confidence. I am glad I found you! Many thanks.” — Tracy Scott

“Thank you so much for this presentation series. Every presentation was meaningful and helpful. I will print out your handout and follow your website and blog. I am a consultant and trainer; I do workshops — primarily leadership and some human resources for clients — and I do NOT want to be boring — which I have been. I knew it before your webinar series but didn’t know what to do to change.  Now I know I have resources to help me engage my audience.” — Donna Hains

“I always enjoy your webinars – and receiving your e-newsletters.  Even though I wasn’t able to be on all of the webinars the past few sessions, I always watched the recorded versions.  And I ALWAYS learn something new!  I appreciate you offering these webinars – and at such a reasonable price.  They have certainly enhanced my skills and my knowledge! Thank you is not enough to say – but thank you for all you do for us.  Keep ‘em coming! ” — Nancy Upchurch, CAP-OM

“Thank you for putting together the workshop. I have learned so much! I cannot wait for the next one and the next one. The flow is just right to catch all the tips and reproduce my own with confidence. My presentations are starting to sparkle and make the point more succinctly. I am sure that my audiences are grateful as well.” — Marilyn Stewart, Learning & Development, Weasler Engineering, Inc.
