Public Speaking Testimonials
We have had an amazing journey since 2010 and have received tons of awesome testimonials, feedback and suggestions. Here’s the compilation of some of the best testimonials we’ve received.
great to hear from you. I do have some news about next year and I will not be at Siena as I have been appointed as Deputy Principal Learning and Teaching at Galen College in Wangaratta.
I can honestly tell you that this appointment would never have happened if I had not met you and completed the public speaking course with you six years ago. You made a huge difference in my life and likewise for my sister Michelle and the many Siena student leaders who were lucky to work with you at our student leadership days.
I am hoping that you will continue to work with our student leaders in the future but I do not know at this stage who my replacement is and what they will put in place for next year. I think the announcement will be made soon and I will definitely be advising them to book you.
As soon as I know who has the job I will forward their contact details to you so that you can speak to them in person. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you Judith and I wish you all the very best for 2016 and the future. I really hope that we will keep in touch. Marie
I would like to sincerely thank you for my increased confidence and skill in delivering presentations.
In a few short hours I struck a bargain with fear, and, despite the continuing efforts of my inner critic, gained clarity and confidence.
I really thought it was good to know what to do and what not to do while speaking to people.
At Kilbreda, we decided to use your workshops as part of our enhancement/enrichment programme.
The skills learnt, the practice gained and the opportunity to confront my fear of public speaking in a safe environment were invaluable to me.
Testimonials of people who attended Direct Speech public speaking workshop in Melbourne
“I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and Judith’s skills kept us ail involved through out the day. It’t a shame that not more MHPE volunteers were able to attend.”
“I had a fear of public speaking but found with a few techniques this fear can be managed and overcome.”
“It should be a two day session and be an integral part of MHPE training”
“A good experience and I came away with a good feeling.” MPHE
The talk went fantastically! I was pleasantly surprised at my confidence during the presentation and at remembering the hints and tips from your good self! I paused, smiled, spoke clearly and even made gestures! I asked the audience questions and just before my talk a gentleman, in the front, row came up to me and told me of his experience with stroke that was a successful one (because there was quick action taken) and I asked him if he’d like to share his experience which he did. They also loved the story about my friend Carol (this was written on the evaluation sheets) and I held off until the end to tell them how her story ended and how she is today. So all in all it was a very good experience for my first presentation and to such a large audience (around 70 I think) and without any power points as well! I did have a microphone that was a great asset and Megan held up the posters. Looking forward to my next one now!! Warm Regards” Vivienne Mcdonald
