The course was brilliant. Mike was very friendly and engaging. The course was structured in an interesting and informative way. I enjoyed the fact it was a small group as I felt the course was made very personal and everyone was involved. It was a nice relaxing environment and didn't feel intimidating or scary.
I have gained so much more than I thought I would. I have a sense of enthusiasm which Mike has enabled me to find and I now feel I can attempt anything. I have found it hugely encouraging and I now understand how to control my emotions. I would recommend to anyone.

Very broad range of topics and a huge variety of tips and tricks shared. The course was individually tailored to our personal needs and insecurities.

I find myself being more productive, proactive and positive.
“I attended your course a few months back with the hope of improving my public speaking ahead of hosting an award ceremony in front of hundreds. I put everything you said into practice and although there were hiccups due to dodgy IT, I felt incredibly confident up on stage and in turn dealt with the issues suitably and walked away feeling accomplished and happy that I’d put my best into it.
I’ve also taken a lot of what you said into my day to day living and I find myself being more productive, proactive and positive. Although there are days where confidence is low and motivation is nowhere to be found, I realise that these are just blips in the bigger journey!”- Glenn Scott, Private
