What they said
“An eye opener! I now understand how I come across to other people,
how I sound, the tone of my voice, the speed of my speech. It really made me realize that my perception of myself is very different from how people perceive me, and what are the factors that have an influence of these perceptions.”
“Everything on this training was brilliant. It is fantastic to work with people who are not business consultants and can give very interesting different point of view on things we experience daily.”
“Best training I’ve done in 7 years at eBay!”
