Without doubt I would recommend this programme for anyone who has face to face meetings online and needs to present with style and impact. The programme really encourages you to think about your audience and covers everything from the set up of your surroundings, compilation of slide decks, annunication, getting your message across, communication, audience engagement and participation, the journey and the destination for your presentation. The roadmap is a genius idea to use as a template for any presentation you need to put together. Overall a hugely useful course which has given me oodles of confidence!

From the start Sonia made me feel at ease. The content was great, split evenly into manageable modules to give me time to work on what I had learned. From my “environment set up” to the presentation content and delivery, it all flowed very well. This (online) training has improved my confidence and is something I will take with me, not just on line, but face to face and even in general conversation.

The course was excellent & very thought-provoking. It has given me skills that will be invaluable for presenting and life in general.

For a two hour (online) fast class I thought it was great to get everyone to question their techniques and give some really useful pinpoints on how to engage more successfully with your online audience. Also pinpoints on your webcam layout is always useful!

Belinda was an excellent teacher, tailoring the course to mine and my colleagues’ specific requests and presentation needs. I have already applied what I learned to a successful client presentation that Belinda helped me refine during our 1-2-1 session. Thank you!

Not being a natural or experienced presenter at all, I feel a zen-like enlightenment being furnished with the many techniques and tools Belinda so competently showcased. I now feel genuinely confident in my ability to plan and deliver engaging presentations... with impact!

Nairn’s Oatcakes

Nairn’s Oatcakes

I did find it extremely valuable. It not only helped me improve the delivery of presentation skills but all how to plan and structure a presentation too. The planning has actually greatly helped the delivery, and it feels like the content I am delivering now has emphasis on the important sections. Although I do not like being filmed, I found this valuable since it shows the difference from the start, throughout and once training was completed. I found this method adds to my confidences since you can visually see the improvement.

Nikko Asset Management

Northern Trust

Northern Trust

I found the training extremely useful and the coaching technique was much suited to my style of learning. It has made me think about presentation preparation a lot more, how to structure presentations and overall delivery. There are numerous tools and techniques that I will now be using in practice and therefore made the coaching very valuable. The one to one coaching is much more valuable and felt more personal so I could relate to the training and see how it would work in practice. I found Belinda very easy to work with and be coached by straight away, which made the training enjoyable and extremely useful. 10/10.
