Great course for presentation skills, really got me to re-evaluate my structure & how I come across. Will be very helpful for presentations internally/externally or virtually/in-person!
What I most enjoyed about this course was how flexible it was and that you could do it at your own pace.
The courses were very informative and got you thinking in a totally different way.
David Ross is a great trainer, very knowledgeable and encouraging. There was a good balance of group work, individual work and presentation.
Alison was very informative and helpful. I struggled when I first opened the work book as it seemed intimidating, but all of Alison's explanations were really easy to follow and made it easier to apply to my role.
The breakout rooms were really helpful for learning, everyone came from different companies/experience levels/team structures and it was important to hear that the challenges are broadly similar. Gave us ample opportunity to learn from one another, and David (James) was great at consolidating that in the bigger group.
