COACHING TESTIMONIALS – SPEAKING AND PRESENTING
Michael Hennessy, Partner, Ernst and Young, BRISBANE.
Alan Youngson, Managing Director of Excelerate Results, was engaged by our organisation to provide nine (9) months of executive coaching and mentoring to one of our senior managers, especially in leadership, communication and teamwork with his staff and his manager.
I would be happy to re-engage Mr Youngson to assist us with the development needs of other senior staff including public speaking and professional presenting.
Jehan De Zoysa, Business Analyst & Project Manager – Thomson Reuters, LONDON.
As a result of Alan’s extensive management/leadership background and customised training/interactive coaching skills and activities, I have become much more confident in expressing my key capabilities and value to my company and holding an audience’s attention with my vocal variety and range of appropriate body language.
I would recommend Alan unreservedly, especially if you want to learn to speak successfully and present persuasively in any business or professional situation.
Carolyn Young Associate Director, QUT Library, BRISBANE & Partnerships Qatar National Library, QATAR.
Alan coached me through my international conference presentation with practical activities to overcome my fears and nervousness, helped me re-shape my speech more succinctly and provided insightful rehearsal tips. After the coaching, I had a vivid, humorous and compelling presentation which led to a standing ovation (my first ever).
Thanks so much Alan. I wish I’d had your coaching years ago. You have a most knowledgeable and engaging way of building a person’s confidence, credibility and capabilities.
Dr Elizabeth Kirk, CEO and Owner, Practical Ergonomics, BRISBANE.
Alan, I can’t thank you enough for coaching me so quickly how to present persuasively and win more business, especially from various organisations. With your extensive career in management, public speaking, training and theatre experience, you are an unique one-stop shop for any business or professional person rapidly needing to improve their speaking capabilities, determine their USP (Unique Selling, Proposition) and articulate their 60 second elevator speech in a networking situation to convince others of the need for a follow-up presentation.
Dr Michael Macklin, CEO Hall Chadwick – Education, BRISBANE.
Alan is a very impressive person to work with on projects and has outstanding representation and presentation skills especially with high-level international representatives. He has obvious leadership and extensive managerial abilities; his policy development capacities are of a high order as are his range of influential speaking, communication and interpersonal capabilities.
