Step Change Listening
To improve my presentation skills is invaluable to me. It was a skill lacking in my communications role and I looked forward to correcting that. I now feel excited that I know I can feel more comfortable in giving a presentation or hosting a conference day.
Gavin was very easy to listen to and held my interest in the course all day. Please pass on my thanks to Gavin for boosting my confidence in a way that was right for me.
The course was easy to follow while being informative and fun.
The venue was easy to get to and professional.
Excellent. Very experienced and knowledgeable teacher combined with useful materials and great exercises. The difference in my confidence between first presentation and second was great.
Good communicator and relaxed style gave me confidence that I could improve by using the skills demonstrated. Encouraging attitude from teacher was very welcome.
How satisfied were you with opportunities to demonstrate your knowledge and practice your skills during the day?
Very satisfied. The course was extremely effective in showing the journey from inexperience and lack of confidence to a confident presentation to finish. Different types of exercises and materials very useful.
How confident are you that you will apply the knowledge and skills learned
After realising the mistakes I was making and more importantly how my nerves were being viewed by the audience I will make a big effort to increase my preparation and be less nervous when speaking. The PREP strategy was particularly useful to me both personally and professionally.
Gave a good insight into how to present and I left with plenty of food for thought. well put together and presented
How much did the facilitators style and approach assist your learning?
His style made it easy to digest and take in what was being put over.
How satisfied were you with the opportunity to practice your new skills?
Three times during the workshop was, I felt, a good number and the length of each presentation was about right too.
How confident are you that you will apply the knowledge and skills learned?
The way the course was structured makes me think that the skills learnt will be ingrained and, when preparing, will be used without even having to think about them.
I thought that Gavin was fantastic and I learned a lot . I went away feeling a lot more confident to speak publicly.

This course has been very valuable to me. It has given me confidence and lots of practical steps to help in various aspects of assertiveness and influencing. I would strongly recommend it.
Gavin was an outstanding trainer. The course was fun and informative and he immediately made me feel at ease. He adapted the content to suit our needs and the areas we wanted to focus on. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and he has already helped me feel more confident and equipped to deal with different situations and personalities. Particularly useful for me were the sections on assertive behaviours, self talk, anchoring and saying 'no'. Please send my thanks to Gavin.
Very good range of hand-outs, relevant and interesting slides. The course was very well structured, always interesting and engaging, and the day flew by.
Marie Curie Cancer Care
In particular, two excellent features stood out for me - the use of QR codes to additional material on the internet, which I was able to very easily access from my smartphone; and the section on handling questions.
As with all great books, the information only works if you apply it. I have seen Gavin present and can tell you he definitely 'walks his talk'. If you apply even one or two of the great suggestions he describes in his book, I can guarantee your improvement.
Having taken the plunge to speak at a Logistics conference recently, I wanted to achieve two things - breaking through my nerves in such situations and delivering a competent and engaging speech.
Within a non-threatening environment, Gavin delivered a training day with a natural ease that gave me the confidence to prepare and deliver what was needed and empower me to take on other public speaking opportunities. Something I would have actively steered away from before.
So, yes - Gavin is good at what he does and I would recommend him in a heartbeat.

I find it particularly valuable to have an external presenter to help with the feedback on the topics session – it helps us to know we are going in the right direction!
