“A luxurious experience - 2 days in the presence of an expert”
Principal Consultant, Capgemini, Winning the Communication Game
“Gareth coaches using some simple, yet powerful techniques for structuring presentations which we have found to be extremely effective every time we’ve used them. We particularly like his style and approach which ensures his coaching sessions are highly informative and memorable whilst also being great fun.”
Senior Project Director, Skanska UK, Bid team coaching
"Great course, content learnt is practised and can be taken away to be applied in meetings, presentations and conversations"
Asst Financial Accountant, Bluefin, Effective Communication
"Gareth is a battle hardened campaigner with bags of experience and a balanced approach. Very few times in my professional life have I been left grasping for more and pondering the present. I thoroughly enjoyed the mental challenges and found this experience one of the most valuable since leaving higher education. Whilst this may seem intimidating Gareth has an approach which makes it easy for all walks of life to engage successfully."
Senior Delivery, Avanade UK, Persuasive Communication
Competence and confidence in public speaking starts with a well designed message in a form appropriate to the audience and the event. In addition to the techniques of design, many people want help in dealing with nerves and “personal presence”.
