Effective Presentation Skills Participant Evaluations – City of Vancouver
My Manager Lisa Hoogstins called me yesterday and asked “Who did the presentation for the Recruit Orientation?” I told her it was me! She said that she received a lot of positive feedback and that the comments were exceptional. I have to give credit where it is due, I surely learnt a lot from you and have put what I learnt into action. It’s a valuable course and I have reiterated the same to Management here at the VPD. Thanks again for an enjoyable, practical and fun filled two days of learning.

You’re Speaking – But Are You Connecting: All afternoon I have heard nothing but positive feedback on your session. You were a real hit. Personally I have never enjoyed a session more and I honestly do not know where the time went – a real measure of success.

I have received very positive feedback on the sessions you delivered. People commented that they had taken several Presentation type courses in the past but nothing even close to as valuable as this session. We look forward to more.
