I have had a lot of prior media training and I can say with certainty that our instructor was fantastic in every way. We had a fantastic and engaging instructor who was encouraging and able to draw out the best in our attendees, some of whom are uncertain about presenting because they are just beginning to present publicly for our company. Our instructor was able to relate and help our novice presenters and also more advanced presenters which is difficult to do and a rare ability. I would give this training a 10 out of 10! Read More…
