"If you have any fears of speaking in public, this course will cure you! It has taught me valuable techniques which I now use all year round to present confidently in meetings and conferences."

Ahmed, Consultant Surgeon

"This course was run in my trust back in May, and I truly found it invaluable. I have gone from being the guy at the back of the room, or the one quietly going to his slides when presenting, to a much more animated and interesting presented who grabs attention."

Dan, ST4

"Simple but effective techniques that make all the difference. Really fascinating to see how we doctors can learn a lot from actors to project ourselves and gain confidence without having to constantly worry about being judged. Thank you for such a confident builder."

Amanda, ST6

"As an anaesthetist, people always tell me that I look quiet. This course literally changed my life! I can't say I have become the life and soul of my department but I have gained respect with my new approach to public speaking. I look and sound much more confident. Thank you."

Rosie ST3 

"Even consultants can learn a lot from this course. I am the living proof of it! Thanks for helping me reinvigorate my presentations. Your input was miraculous!"
