At the last minute my manager asked me to take his place at this presentation workshop and I was quite reluctant as I was nervous about what it would entail. However it turned out to be a great experience and has helped my presentation skills tremendously! I am a lot more confident and comfortable when I am presenting now. This workshop helped me animate my presentations, making them more interesting and easily understandable, and also identify and limit any distracting hand gestures, as well as tips to engage the audience. I found this workshop quite valuable and would recommend it to anyone that does presentations as part of their job, no matter how often.

Dorothea presented an engaging and upbeat seminar on “The 7 Communication Keys Workshop” to the Vancouver Association of Law Libraries (VALL). She led us through useful tips that we can use to better communicate and listen in our workplace, and in our personal lives. Dorothea had a great balance of lighthearted and thought-provoking anecdotes that encouraged laughter and reflection. Thank you, Dorothea!

Thank you for the public speaking seminars you provided. I do a lot of speaking in my role at the firm and am relatively comfortable doing so. However, I took away many salient points from your seminars, which I am confident I will use going forward. I also appreciated the way you deconstructed much of what we do intuitively when we speak in public, such that we could analyze our own behaviour and think about what we might improve on. For a small investment of time, there was much to gain in attending.

Dorothea’s workshop helped me become a more effective and confident speaker. Her clear-cut guidelines and honest feedback allowed me to greatly improve presentations with a few simple tweaks. The techniques I learned will stay with me throughout my career.

Dorothea’s role play exercises helped us tackle weak areas of communication between staff members and customers. The list of Dos and Don’ts was practical, gave us specific examples in words and phrases, and showed us how to present ourselves better. I highly recommend Dorothea to businesses for her training and presentation expertise.
