Our training programs
Training with people in mind
Yep, if you forget you have human beings sitting in the room all your content might be wasted.
Train your trainers! How many people do they impact everyday in your organization? If it is worth sending people to training, it is worth helping those delivering it be the best they can be.
Presenting with people in mind
Ok, you are not a trainer, but you spend a fair bit of time in front of a group of people running a workshop, facilitating a team day, launching a new product or presenting at conference.
No one has ever told you how to do it, you just work it out as you go, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Take the guess work out, make it easier for you and for them. Make it engaging and memorable!
End the suffering – yes really. We have all suffered sitting through or delivering a presentation. It is not fun, and it is definitely not time well spent.
Learn how to do it in a “Humane” way – alleviate the suffering and get it done quickly and effectively! Be engaging and memorable. You can, you just don’t know how yet.
“Unconventional delivery! Very energetic, kept me interested and found Michael's style really personableExperiential learning, loved that I only picked up my phone in the breaks, introduced to some great tools I will be integrating into my rep training sessions.”Pharmaceutical Industry Professional
“Michael was fantastic! Really engaging, got us to think for ourselves too which is important. By demonstrating at the start of the presentation the different methods before telling us they had occurred meant we got to experience them with genuine reaction and as a result, made me see that they really work without forcing them. Thanks Michael!”George Weston Foods

“The lack of (apparent) structure from a participant perspective, which kept things interesting and different from the (boring) norm. Enjoyed interacting with other participants. Most of all, it was fun and engaging. Michael was excellent as a facilitator.”Retail Management Professional
“Entertaining. Takes a different and abstract approach but when the reason for that is made clear it all makes sense.”Banking Industry Professional
“The best thing about this is that you learn through actually experiencing the lesson itself. You come through the other end realising you are picking up "gems" along the way.”FMCG Sales Industry Professional

“You came highly recommended and you lived up to your reputation!”Tertiary Education Marketing Professional
