I wanted to formally thank you for the two 'engage & inspire your listener' workshops you provided our firm. The feedback I have received from across the firm has been resoundingly positive. Most participants thought it was an extremely positive experience and met workshop objectives. While most have also requested follow-up practical sessions. I truly feel you struck a chord with everyone who attended, senior partner to junior lawyer. I look forward to our next collaboration with Passion and Purpose. Sincere thanks.
I've actually been to a few of communication skills seminars with Macquarie but I think Tony Sloman's training was exceptional. He brings a unique view because of his background as a professional actor which made for interactive and playful communication exercises. Despite being a bit nervous at times giving presentations I certainly felt a very clear improvement in my delivery putting in place some of his communication tips. I hope it doesn't sound too clichè, but I do look forward to speaking engagements as an opportunity to put in practise some of the lessons he imparted.
