Comments from attendees

I used some of the technique you taught during the workshop for my internship presentation. It worked splendidly and my employers gave very good feedback about it. Thanks!   [2014]

Thank you very much for the workshop – it was really an eye-opener for me.   [2014]

Thank you for your workshop on presentation skills. I had to present twice this month, once within our company and once in a Canada-wide contest for startups. I really feel I am standing out from all the other presenters. I can see people stay focused throughout the whole presentation and enjoy it, and I received great feedback.   [2014]

This way of doing presentations is really new to me, it really helped me a lot.   [2013]

Wow! beyond expectation.   [2013]

Probably the most useful workshop in the workshop line-up of the module;
I wouldn't mind attending a longer version of this.   [2013]

It GREATLY improved my presentation skills. My way of presentation and designing slides have since been greatly influenced. A very helpful workshop to improve students’ presentation skills.   [2013]

I have witnessed the all attendees becoming better. By the end of the workshop series, it is apparent that the attendees have progressed by leaps and bounds - that I say, makes excellent teaching.   [2012]

The workshop improved my technical presentation skills a lot.   [2012]
