“I attended a training course delivered by William in October 2018 on “Presentation Skills – Presenting for impact” at the IMI and found William to be exceptional as a trainer, facilitator, motivator and leader.
I participated in this course at a challenging time in my career, when about to become redundant and looking to make the leap from one industry to another.
William is outstanding as a trainer and facilitator and really goes above and beyond in terms of understanding his audience and the outcomes they wish to achieve from the relevant training course. With a mix of all levels of experience, age and industry backgrounds, he has a real knack for making his training participants comfortable very quickly and creating a safe space in which to learn and practise newly acquired skills. He is an active listener and really gets the best out of his audience.
I found William’s training course to be extremely well structured, timed and delivered and that it set out clear goals and outcomes for each and every person attending the course.
William’s style is highly inclusive, open and pragmatic, using practical tools, techniques, videos, recordings and learning aids, with everyone having the opportunity to deliver a presentation after Day 1 and then to deliver it again a second time post-audience feedback. The group approach adopted and the open, safe environment created by William really made for a hugely positive experience – particularly given that most people who attend a training course on presentations go for a reason – they want to improve & yes….that fear factor of standing up in front of a room full of people!
I would highly encourage anyone looking to develop their presentation or leadership skills to avail of William’s training services. I have had a career spanning almost 30 years and to date, have found this to be one of the best training courses I have ever attended – primarily because of the pragmatic approach, hands-on advice, tips and techniques, practical examples and the fact that I walked away feeling much more confident about how to structure and approach presentations, how to overcome nervousness, how to lead with a bang, make my presentations memorable and to present with impact… it does what it says on the tin and I would highly recommend William to anyone looking to improve their skills and to get ahead.
He is genuinely inspiring as a presenter, trainer and leader and really delivers outcomes and the results we all hope to get from training courses we invest our time, money and effort in.
A few months after having completed William’s course, I started my search for a new job and had to present to Senior Execs/C-Suite a number of times for each opportunity I interviewed for. I ended up with a couple of really great job offers and am now in my target role with a very successful Irish FinTech organisation.
Thank you William – you are fantastic at what you do and couldn’t recommend you & your training/educational services more”
