Powerful Presenting

"I thoroughly enjoyed the Powerful Presenting Workshop! After beginning with a very challenging activity the ice was broken and everyone relaxed into an informative day filled with a variety of engaging and fun activities. The informal small group atmosphere allowed us all to relax. Our final practical activity left us with excellent useful verbal and written feedback from Irena and other participants. The video gave us an insight into how we appear and sound to others. Everyone seemed to find watching themselves present a very enlightening process. We became aware of our own gestures and movements that detract from our overall performance. Now we have a tool that, along with our manual and feedback, enables us to review our performance at a later date and continue to use it for on-going self improvement. I left the workshop feeling more confident and with greater clarity on how to proceed with my public speaking. Thank you Dr Irena for a full, informative and energetic day! "

Since my first telephone conversation with Dr Irena Yashin-Shaw, I knew that I had found the perfect coach. Having completed both the Confident Speaking Course and the Powerful Presenting Course with Irena, my presentation skills have improved to the degree that my colleagues 'want what she has'.
