The other 20% of public speeches are delivered after thorough and careful preparation, editing, rehearsals and practice.

The trainer definitely has many years of experience in this field – and he managed to cut down my learning curve, by sharing his experience in the form of story-telling. “Facts tell – stories sell”! This course is packed with valuable tips that are both practical and effective. The trainer is also full of energy.

John is humorous, knowledgeable and humble. He is able to balance theoretical with practical training and blended in interesting personal stories to enhance learning and understanding. He skilfully made sure that every participant had an opportunity to speak, with the short span of time we had. I am totally satisfied with the course. Should be extended to 3 days. Will look out for more of John’s course.
