Testimonials

3 days whereby participants had to get out of their comfortzone straightaway and participate in the different activities. It was a public speaking course and it lived up to its name. Michelle was very down to earth and made participants feel comfortable. She has created an interactive training and knows the subject really well. This programme has helped me see my potential and stand up to speak confidently in front of an audience. It was a good opportunity for me to participate in such an interactive programme, whereby each and every module offered participants the opportunity and the challenge to push themselves out of their comfortzone.

My biggest take-away from the Masterful Public Speaking workshop were the tips for story-telling and voice control, which were very well explained. This programme has helped me develop the interpersonal skills when preparing to deliver an influential speech to captivate the hearts and minds of an audience.

James Lephew, James Lephew

Having already attended a public speaking course in the past I did not expect much difference, however the content was different, very creative, well planned and delivered excellently.

The Masterful Public Speaking programme has helped me to plug the courage in whatever situation I am in and deliver my message in a concise way, be it one to one or a group.
