    Due to my lack of experience and nerves presenting to people, I asked my Line Manager if I could attend a Presentation Skills Training Course. On the day of the training I was a bag of nerves as I knew the course entailed me presenting for 10 minutes in front of a group. Tom Courtney made me feel at ease within 5 minutes of being in the room. The feedback I had from him and the notes throughout the day were excellent. I fully recommend this course, he made me feel at ease on the second presentation that I delivered and the feedback I received will stand me in good stead for future presentations.

    This session delivered by Tom has to be one of the most enjoyable and productive training sessions I have personally ever attended. Tom managed to grab the attention of everyone in the group from the first minute to the very last. It was perfectly pitched for our team, from admin to senior managers and thoroughly enjoyed by all.
    I feel that not only has the team gained an awful lot of knowledge and practical tips around presenting but it has enhanced our working relationship with some great team bonding.
    I would sincerely endorse Tom’s training for any organisation, no matter how big or small, and whether they are looking to train the most junior novice and nervous presenter right through to squeezing that extra bit out of even the most time-served public speaker.

    Tom is a fantastic character who made everyone feel at ease and really engaged everyone in the course throughout the whole day. The pace was bang on, I could quite happily have carried on into Day 2. Fantastic day with some really valuable learning achieved delivered by someone who had clearly lived and breathed what he was teaching.

    Tom was extremely knowledgeable and professional with the delivery of the course, but still provided an element of fun to make everyone feel at ease and enjoy the course. I thought Tom made this course incredibly enjoyable, which to be honest; I wasn’t expecting form a presentation skills course. I would be really keen to hear of other courses which Tom delivers that could assist in my development.

  7. Denise Courtney

    Tom’s engaging and relaxed style enabled me to take a step back and consider where my time was being stolen and where my priorities lay. I left the course with a lot of very useful tips and techniques which I now apply in my daily life which have helped me enormously. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who struggles to prioritise tasks and who feel overburdened in the workplace. I found Tom to be extremely personable, and would recommend him as an excellent trainer.

    I booked one of our employees onto the Secrets of Effective Time Management course and had excellent feedback from them regarding the content. The important thing for us to find in a time management course was for this person to leave with real actions as to what they would do differently following the course and Tom helped them to come up with strategies that were applicable to his role. Not only that but Tom has followed the training up with a coaching conversation a number of weeks after the course, which has been very valuable. I would definitely recommend the course and Tom as a trainer.

    Excellent course. Tom is very knowledgeable about the subject. He has a wide range of life experiences to illustrate points he wants to make. The whole course went well. I found it was very informal as there was only another attendee there, which made a more relaxed atmosphere during the day. The course pointed me in the right direction with regards to doing presentations. I certainly benefited from doing the course. Tom was a very easy going and amiable trainer. I would recommend the course and further courses delivered by Tom.
