Derek was very knowledgeable in this subject. It was good to meet other people who have the same issues with self confidence as myself, its good to know your not alone. I feel that I now have some tools that I can use in both my work environment and home environment that I can put to good use to assist with some difficult situations. Thank you for such a great training session.
The trainer did a great job presenting the content and getting everyone involved. The day was enjoyable and went really fast. Catering was nice and the training room was the perfect size for our small group. I have learnt so much more about myself and how I work and how to assert myself professionally. Great course would recommend to my peers.
Amazing course, highly recommended. The most useful part of the course was being in a way forced stepping out of my comfort zone, this in result really helped develop my confidence and assertiveness." "Overall the training its self helped me in many ways. It helped me to look at other things in a different perspective. Also it allowed me to acknowledge every little victory that I had achieved each week. This course has helped me realize that I have a lot of confidence in me that I never knew I had. Thank you Peter.

I have participated in a number of professional development training sessions over the years. This learning experience has been the most positive to date. Derek was an insightful and engaging facilitator. His enthusiasm for the topic motivated our small group to engage introspectively to maximise the learning experience. His suggestions were practical and I am inspired to put them into action. Thank you Derek.

I don't generally give 10/10 scores on feedback however I found Siobhan very informative, engaging, knowledgeable and approachable. I felt she adjusted the course content to be more relevant to myself and the other participants and her teaching style was very unique and appropriate to the topic of the course. I will definitely be returning for the refresher course within 6 months. Thank you.

Melbourne participants absolutely loved Siobhan's delivery of the first courses. She had Engineers eating out of her hand and singing which even their manager didn't believe was possible. Everyone arrived back from breaks on time and stayed when the course ran over - this is unheard of before with this group. Bernadette heard this after the first session and so sat in on the second and loved the session and how participants were engaged - she said it was life changing for her.
The trainer presented the training very well. She interacted with everyone nicely.
