Suzanne is an excellent facilitator - engaging, knowledgeable and very responsive to participants. Great stories! Definitely would recommend this course. Suzanne is an excellent facilitator and structures the course to the needs/levels of participants. A very interactive day with material and content designed for practical application.
Relevant to my life on a personal and professional level – skills for life, not just work. Renee is a fantastic speaker, warm, engaging, passionate about what she does, knows her stuff.
Paul was engaging all day and kept everyone captivated and included in the conversation. Paul went into fine detail and referenced everything back to the individual. Great job!!
I found this course very interactive and therefore extremely interesting. One of the best things was that Suzanne did not use PPT. or any high tech material. She presented real life examples that I can relate to. I will recommend this course to my friends and fellow colleagues.
Highly recommend ICML for personalised and personable training needs. The course was impactful, effective and provided action points for all members to take away and improve upon. Great investment!
The course was enlightening. Suzanne was extremely personable and knowledgeable and I found it easy to relate. This course has boosted my confidence and given me perspective on myself and my interaction with others.
Great course which gives you tools you can implement straight away
Great presenter who explained points thoroughly and clearly. Suzanne encouraged group participants and discussion well throughout entire course. Well done.
Highly recommended to everyone who relates to people from different cultures and backgrounds. The course is done professionally, effectively and very helpful. I gained more confidents in saying “no” and express my opinions directly yet respectfully. Thank you, Justine!
Excellent balance between technology and people’s varying skills and familiarity. It was all over too soon!! I would absolutely have Steve back for other training or this training again. I could imagine this would have been fantastic training to do with management teams to help build rapport between colleagues and how to trouble shoot common and familiar communication pitfalls. Very useful for both work and personal relationships.
We had way too much fun! Such a safe environment for a tricky topic.
Suzanne was amazing – she knew her stuff and was a dynamic presenter. I loved her humour and stories and feel like she gave me all the tools I need to be more assertive.
I thought Renee delivered the course in an enlightening way. I felt that the group were engaged throughout the course which allowed ease participation. A great course which has given me skills in areas which I lacked.
This is a great tool to have, especially if you lack in confidence or deal with difficult people.
Honestly, I didn’t find any past workshops as interesting as this. Amazing use of verbal and non-verbal communication.
Suzanne was interactive and connected well with the group. The course material to take home will help keep the material fresh. It was fantastic!
Excellent – I would recommend colleagues to take part in this course. Paul had great energy and really knew the content. Thank you!
Suzanne was absolutely fantastic. Full marks to her. The whole course was interestingly presented. Was quite informative and very useful for my personal growth as well as professional.
Definitely one of the most useful and interactive courses I have done. I feel I will come away with a lot of valuable information to help my everyday work/ life tasks.
I was engaged throughout the whole course. I’m leaving the day feeling more confident in my abilities and with the tools to help me build the areas I’m not so confident in. Paul is fantastic. Enjoyed how he coaches you through situations.
Suzanne is a very engaging presenter that allows you to think both personally and professionally about your communication.
I enjoyed the course very much. It was informative and fun.
Rob was vibrant, engaging, mixed up activities and kept us involved. Excellent program, relevant information and a skilled presenter.
Suzanne was great. Highly recommended, especially in a small group, to help grow and feed confidence.
Suzanne was a brilliant trainer, her knowledge of the subject matter was excellent and I enjoyed her style (very engaging and with real life examples). I found this training to be one of the best I’ve attended for a long time. Suzanne’s extensive knowledge of the subject matter meant strong theoretical concepts were explored and the group could dive deep into real-world applications of how to be assertive in both our personal and professional lives. Thank you very much for a valuable day of assertiveness training.
