The course structure was easy to follow and flowed well. Ken was very easy to communicate with, had vast amounts of experience and used his stories to contextualise parts of the course.
Great course for presentation skills, really got me to re-evaluate my structure & how I come across. Will be very helpful for presentations internally/externally or virtually/in-person!
Ken held the groups attention and spoke and presented clearly. I also enjoyed interacting in the breakout rooms, it encouraged different ways of thinking.
I thought it was a really good balance of learning, information shared whilst being able to practise what we we being taught. Ken was very approachable and a great teacher. It was not as daunting as I thought it was going to be. The workbook will be a very useful resource.
I have come away with important information about how to set and monitor goals and performance
