    Celgene

     

    "We had members of our team from all aspects of our business, sales administration, operations and customer service, each person took from the training something that they will put into practice to improve their workplace communication. Scott was an amazing facilitator!"

    A.H. Beard

     

    "I loved the entire day and all the content. Thank you so very much."

    "Sally did a great job particularly as she had to contend with a whole group of women (and one man) during the afternoon after a full on meeting during the morning.. She kept us awoke and interested for the whole 3 hours. I will definitely consider PD Training for future sessions."

    Amaroo School

     

    "I am definitely 'a raving fan'! From the outset Jessica made us feel welcome & dispelled any barriers that might have surrounded a group of strangers. I felt that Jessica took particular interest in each participants needs & goals of the course & directed the teaching to suit the individual as well as the group. Really got more out of the course than I expected! Would recommend the course to anyone."

    "Pam surely knows her stuff. The workshop was eye opening for me I learned a lot from this workshop. Thanks."

    Wellington Airport

     

    "Pam is a fantastic teacher and covered a wide range of information in a very short time, in a clear, structured way. I'm looking forward to putting some of her tips into action."

    Wellington Airport

     

    "Great course. Ran out of time for the part that was of most interest to me (tips/skills for actually presenting/speaking). However, I understand that this was due to a late change and we will be getting this component in due course. Really good presenter, looking forward to it."

    Wellington Airport

    "Great course. The trainer provided lots of opportunities to practice speaking which was greatly appreciated. Also appreciated the feedback given on the day and applied this to my next presentation."

    Ammonite Enterprises Ltd

     

    "I thought I was/am a fairly reasonable speaker, given my usual audiences, but I learned a lot from our our speaker: so 'able' to establish a rapport with his audience and comes across as genuine, sincere, experienced and with a good sense of humour; essential in my 'disabled' community and world..."

    Tiaho Trust

     

    "The best part of the course was to watch Kim in action and how she cleverly wove the content and examples throughout the day. Parking was a disruptive issue as people had to get up and change parks and I found this interrupted the flow of delivery. Learnt a great deal and enjoyed the day. Thanks for all the effort."

    BLENNZ

    Aon New Zealand

    NZ DEFENCE FORCE

     

    "I really enjoyed the class and made the effort to participate all the way through - which I don't normally do. The small class size made for a friendly vibe and thought it was a nice touch having the lunch voucher."

    I enjoyed the course and found it very useful and I aim to use it in both a professional and personal level. Thanks again Tammy was very good with her delivery and did an excellent job of keeping the group on track whilst at the same time giving everyone a fair time to ask questions. Thank you Tammy I would say the only thing negative is that everyone in the business may not get to do the course as it is invaluable, especially at this time of change.
