Course feedback 
Already being a very experienced and skilled presenter I did not believe i would get a great amount from these workshops - I could not have been more wrong. The insights provided, the approach and the content are truly unique and of considerable value to all people who may have cause to speak in public or to present internally within their business. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Jason Murray, VODAFONE 

This course enabled me to refine my presentation skills and confidence. I strongly recommend this to anyone wanting to strengthen their presentation and personal presence.
Nigel McAndrew, Director, Design+Planning

The Speaking to Influence and Persuade Workshop with Mariette Rups-Donnelly was interesting and really pushed me out of my comfort zone in terms of using my voice, posture and stance to project a positive presence in different situations. 

I would recommend it to other industry professionals who are seeking to demand attention and to influence others in business environments.
