Testimonials For Paul
Some of the clients Paul has worked with have kindly shared their feedback and experience of working with him.
Paul is very knowledgeable on the subject matter. He has lots of insights and new experiences to share. I learnt so much it was a great two days.
Many training courses sell themselves as the turning point to your career, I truly think this can be the one that will make the difference for me. I normally score the material low because I do not like workbooks but even in this aspect NxtGEN was spot on. I loved it. More than a training course, a journey of discovery.
I have attended many presentation skills programmes but this one was significantly better than any previous course. Paul was excellent and was really interested in ensuring we all improved.
Every learning experience should light a fire within us and this is certainly true of the NxtGEN programme. Paul has a wonderful ability to tailor his courses and advice to specific needs and target any areas of concern in a business. The delivery of his programme was inspiring, entertaining and informative and was well worth the time and money invested. As a company, I felt that we all benefited from the NxtGEN programme and would certainly recommend it.
Through a 2-day public speaking training course, Paul was instrumental in helping me improve my public speaking capability. Paul taught me how to create a compelling, engaging and memorable presentation. He taught me the importance of good delivery, which is mainly in the preparation. The audience pays more attention when a presentation is just like a good story: with a structured beginning, middle and end; and that’s what I can now deliver. I have put Paul’s guidance into practice and I am very grateful for his advice and direction.
Paul and team did a great job and delivered the subject matter flawlessly. Irrespective of ability, everyone took a lot from the course and this was down to Paul’s fantastic approach.
The course was very entertaining and informative. It brought real life situations into the workshop which really highlighted how to deal with these things during work. Thank you to Paul who helped me to feel as comfortable as possible. Being a new member of the company I had more pressure and Paul was very patient with me.
I can honestly say that this course + facilitator was the “best ever”. Really enjoyed throughout and so beneficial. I would highly recommend this course to other colleagues. Many thanks.
