“I participated in the first workshop with Soulaima Gourani and Lisa Witter on “How to become a better presenter”. It has enabled me in becoming a better leader for my colleagues with immediate feedback following the workshop. I have still to do my first public presentation, but I am sure that the tools and feedback received at the workshop will enable me to improve presentation and “performance” with several 100%. Especially realizing how to build up a presentation and argumentation was an eye opener for me that I can use during my daily work managing my company.”

“I would like to thank you for the interesting, inspiring, and well-communicated presentation that you gave at our economic conference. I think that you, with your presentation and style, are able to communicate to everybody’s inner motivation and personal engagement. I have received a lot of positive feedback on your presentation, and I have to say that you are spot-on with your ability to create images, to get us up from our chairs and out of our comfort zone. You addressed what it is really all about: the desire to make a difference and be successful. It is amazing for everybody to feel that that is the very reason we go to work every day. Personally, I was so fascinated with your ability to create an image of the differences between generations. That is a very important input for the City of Gentofte’s continued business development to understand that the gap between generations is getting shorter and that we even now have to get to move on if we want to target your son’s generation, who can’t understand that the timetable “can’t do more.” Thank you for your story and for generously sharing your exciting experiences!”
Jens Peter Friis
Finance director, City of Gentofte

“Thank you for a super presentation—it was really inspiring. You got a lot of praise from my colleagues whom I had the chance to talk with afterwards.

Karin Jespersen
Afdelingschef, EUC Syd

“You have received straight 5s, except for a couple of 4s and 3s, so that is really good. Your average is 4.9. That is the highest for all speakers. I will also give you a 5, but my grade doesn’t count. ;-)”
