“Thank you for an excellent Professional Speaking course. I have had some experience and training in speaking but your course taught me more than anything else I’ve done.  I will feel more confident about public speaking the next time I’m asked to speak. Rural Advisor- Horizons Regional Council

“Thank you for presenting at the 2015 Chartered Accountants Women’s Workshop last week. You are a fantastic, dynamic presenter and it was  extremely valuable to have you involved. Your presentation definitely added the WOW factor to our day and the attendees rated you very highly.  I hope we can do more work together soon.” Michelle Allan, Events Specialist, Chartered Accountants Manawatu

"Thank you Del and The Speaking Company! I presented at the ALGIM conference in Palmerston North and thanks to you are your coaching it went GREAT!  I used my slides and talked clearly (no ums and ahs) and didn’t even need to refer to my notes.  I can’t believe I have gone from the person who struggled to say my name sitting in front of a group of strangers, to standing up proudly presenting!  Thank you so much Del - now I feel I can do anything." Brooke Daniells, Team Leader Records Management and Business Support, Horowhenua District Council.


"The Speaking Company programme was just what I needed. It boosted my confidence and provided me with the tools to be able to competently speak at an international conference. The programme focuses on extemporaneous delivery which is a great presentation style to develop. Del’s relaxed and friendly approach make the sessions memorable and fun. Thank you Del."   Kate Spear, Professional Advisor at Enable New Zealand.


"We can not speak highly enough of this programme. The reason it is such a success is that the emphasis is placed on  'your' work environment - it is not a one size fits all. Del seems to have this knack of understanding the team and individuals very quickly and making sure that they have a new level of confidence, not only in their presentation skills. This is the best programme I have introduced to our team and we will keep working with The Speaking Company to develop our staff." Sally Hall, HR Manager at Rangitikei District Council.


“I cannot believe how much I have learned in such a short time, knowing the basics gives you such confidence, the best personal development I have ever done!” Vanessa Farrington, Manawatu Muffler Centre,Business Owner.


“I've found this course really useful in building up my confidence in speaking to the point I could present my new-found skills and techniques to my colleagues in a work meeting with some very good feedback” Sam, NZ Air Force
