"This programme was one of the best I have been on. The presenters style was so conducive to remembering the key learnings, unlike other training sessions where you sometimes forget everything after you leave the room. This training has and will genuinely help me in my communications and presentation skills". Nicola McGuinness, InterTradeIreland
"I couldn't recommend this programme more highly. Andrew delivers it in a friendly, engaging and accessible manner. It has completely transformed the way I think about presentations and communication more generally". Anna Cartwright. Macaulay Wray LLP
The Brilliant Communication Training course provided a refreshing outlook on influencing and creating impact through communication and presentations.  Andrew was very engaging and professional and brought a unique approach to any previous courses which I have attended. I really enjoyed the course and have learnt new techniques to apply to future presentations. Location was excellent at Pinsent Masons Offices. Thanks to Women in Business was organising such an inspirational training course.​ Nicola Quinn, South West College 
"Life changing. That is the only way I can describe the impact the course had on me. This incredible course not only challenges the status quo of presentation and communication, it also challenges you on a personal level to delve inside and discover traits, skills and abilities you never thought existed within you. Inspiring, exciting and enjoyable; this course has been invaluable in building my confidence levels and has empowered me to grasp opportunities I previously would have shied away from.  I am no longer afraid to present and I can now influence audiences". Rebecca Watson, Member of WIB
