"Being a frequent and what
I believed to be an accomplished speaker, I came to Tony for what I thought would be fine
tuning. Tony methodically and inspirationally changed my whole way of thinking about
communication and gave me new tools to inspire and connect with my audience. I would
highly recommend Tony to anyone who wants to take their game to the next level" -Andy Murray, CEO, Saatchi and Saatchi X
Our advanced workshops are built around individual coaching for each participant
using our "instant-replay" methodology and video feedback. We are one of only a few training institutions in New Zealand offering the 'instant-replay' methodology and believe it to be the most advanced and effective confidence boosting methods available.
" I found the training effective in changing my comfort levels with presenting to a group. Tony achieved this through one-on-one coaching with a live audience, so that recommendations could be acted on and the results were tangible and immediate - this made the whole experience enjoyable, a word I never thought I would use when describing speaking in public!"
- Pat Beath, Consultant, Synergy International Ltd
Overcoming the fear of public speaking
Most people in New Zealand feel some nervousness about public speaking. We've adapted proven psychological
techniques - successfully used to treat phobias - to help people reduce their fear of public speaking.
"Fantastic course with great presenters. Although I was very nervous on day one the presenters made me feel very comfortable. What I learned will be invaluable - it really made me stop and think about the way I do things and how I think. I did not expect the course to be as interactive and was pleased that it was as it made it very easy to try out the things I was learning."
- Debbie Carr, New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants
We guarantee that we will make a significant difference to the
performance of each participant. If you consider that we haven't
we won't charge you.
"The course challenged what I thought I knew about giving a good presentation, and has enabled me to make immediate and noticeable improvements to my presentation style. The course includes the perfect balance of theory and practice, the learning pace is just right, and the coaching is pitched to individual needs. Whether you are already an experienced presenter, or have never given a presentation before, you will benefit from this course."
