What participants are saying about First Steps in Leadership

“I enjoyed the originality of the presentations and enjoyed the energy of the presenters and their knowledge”

“Your workshops are the best I have attended and that the uni has organised. I like that you keep coming back to what has been said in the previous workshops so that there is a sense of continuity. Also, it emphasises that all the aspects are part of communication and should be seen as a whole and not separate.”

“The context and content were excellent. I learnt a lot about behaviour, intonation and body language, body posture etc, Bev and Kate were excellent and knowledgeable with an important passion for the subject”

“Having attended the fundamental of presentations workshop I was able to pinpoint several areas which had previously been letting my presentation skills down, as a result I was able to start planning much more effective presentations”
