Michael’s presentation at the Moor Park Business Club was top class. Apart from my own views, I sat next to an IFA who was nodding all the way through your talk and commented on the excellent manner it was given. He said that he witnesses many similar presentations on similar topics but this had been the best ever witnessed.

As well as coaching individuals in Public Speaking, with an emphasis on Wedding Speeches, I work as an examiner/assessor for a Qualifications Awarding Organisation – English Speaking Board (ESB). As such I travel around the country assessing people giving presentations with view to them acquiring a professional qualification in Communication Skills. Had I been assessing you today there is no doubt you would have achieved a ‘Distinction’ in the ESB Award in Professional Presentation Skills which is at Degree level. Everything about it was excellent. I wish more people could communicate in such a professional manner as you did earlier today.
