This was the best training course I have attended. I'm actually excited to get back to work and practice my new skills. Fantastic content, amazing trainer. Would recommend to anyone looking to bring their presentation and communications skills up to the next level!
In 18 years of working, I have NEVER had a trainer that was so good!!! She gave very honest feedback, ensured everyones objectives were met, went over and above in everything......plus was friendly, competent, and likeable! Amazing.

It was a great experience

The taped presentations and immediate constructive feedback were terrific
Highly organized, I definitely noticed how she catered her approach according to the participants situations and requirements
A 3 day commitment is a big ask based on how busy I (and most others) seem to be. I can honestly say that I am pleased I committed to this as I feel my future effectiveness will be greatly enhanced

Jill is a huge asset to CMC. My learning outcome wouldn't have been the same without her. What I truly appreciated was that she spent every spare minute she had focused on the participants in the room and giving them additional feedback and coaching. She was relentless in her pursuit to help each person and provide private help to everyone. One of the things I appreciated the most was that she held me to different standards as the others, and challenged me to give more, be more, do more. That's where the real learning came about. She was exceptionally well prepared for her participants and the course. Couldn't have asked for a better facilitator.

I am impressed about the knowledge and tools that the facilitator has. I would suggest to be asked to prepare a speech before starting the course.

The course was excellent overall. I was impressed with the content I learned and the individual focus provided in a smaller group.

" I liked the instruction regarding body language and presentation preparation and having the chance to practice these in front of an audience. "
" I enjoyed being taped and critiqued to ensure continuous improvement. "
" The hands-on exercises were very helpful. The small size of the group allowed participants to be comfortable with one another and was conducive to targeted feedback from the participants. "
