In advance of my first ever public speaking gig, at a high profile event, I booked one to one coaching sessions with Chris Cooper. They were invaluable. Through working with Chris I learned so much in such a short space of time that I was able to pull together a well-structured and powerful PowerPoint presentation and deliver my talk with confidence. It clearly paid dividends as I received some fabulous feedback. This is a direct quote from one of the delegates:
“First time?! Thought you created a clear, engaging and informative talk. Have to say that, today, no other speakers I have seen have actually got the audience to interact with our own thoughts (rather than simply talking to us and asking rhetorical questions only) 😊 “
YAY! Thank you Chris for your encouragement, support and for believing in me. Sarah J NaylorSarah Naylor – Naylor George Recruitment More Testimonials
