What Others are Saying About Present Potential Training

Alexa Forbes

International Communications Consultant, UK

Helen provided these young speakers with an overview of what was required from them and through a series of 1:1 virtual meetings, coached them through the development of engaging slides and high-energy, inspiring and well-rehearsed presentations.

The session was well received by the audience of 200 delegates and the young presenters received lots of confidence-building, positive feedback.

2021 ICN Congress Speaker

These resources far exceeded my expectations.

As an educator myself for many years I had not truly appreciated the power of having an actual person delivering information. I felt Helen had a very powerful way of connecting with the audience which I have not experienced much in the virtual environment.

I will be using these tips and tricks for my presentations and in my teaching from now on and thank Helen for putting these together in such an engaging way. 

Tracy Bury

Deputy CEO, World Physiotherapy

Helen is very approachable and easy to work with; she is very responsive, asking the right questions to obtain the information required to understand the context and inform her presentation.

We enjoyed working with Helen developing this new format of guidance and support for our congress speakers.
