      Taking the plunge into online study can be daunting. So, don’t just take our word for it, read these encouraging testimonials from past students on how the experience of education has had a profound impact on their life.

      "Very interesting simplifying behaviours that we use daily whilst communicating, breaking it down into parts i.e. body language, tone conveys messages as strongly as words do." "Your company is very lucky to have Mark on board! Mark was probably one of the best presenters/coaches I've ever come across in my 20 year office careers involving countless training sessions on various topics. His energy and demeanour is contagious, and he is very motivating and engaging. I got a lot of value out of the course and his time. I can't wait to put his tips and tricks to use in work AND personal life." - Chubb Insurance Australia Limited

      "I found that some of the information i received and learned from the communications course can help me not only with my job but also my everyday life." "The trainer was very knowledgeable on communications in the workplace. He was amicable and display a good sense of humour and provided practicable problems that you could work through together. He provided some wonderful learning games that proved to be humorous and engaging in a group setting. Over all a wonderful training day that has improved my communication skill set." - Community Gro

      "Best course I have ever attended. A great day learning from our trainer, manuals, food, environment, information. The way and structure in which the course was run made you feel comfortable and learning easy. I wasn't bored but engaged the whole day. Wasn't made feel pressured or stressed but rather comfortable right from the start. I would highly recommend this course and our trainer and would love to do further courses with this style of training and trainer." "Very relaxed and interactive environment. Learnt a lot about myself and ways I can improve my communication both in the workplace and socially." - Weleda Australia
