"I am definitely 'a raving fan'! From the outset Jessica made us feel welcome & dispelled any barriers that might have surrounded a group of strangers."

"Excellent course! Trainer an expert and skillful at managing group and individual needs - i was impressed. Many thanks :) The pace of the course was good. The nature and content of the training was applicable to all the participants, despite their varying backgrounds."


-Celgene



"We had members of our team from all aspects of our business, sales administration, operations and customer service, each person took from the training something that they will put into practice to improve their workplace communication. Scott was an amazing facilitator!"


-A.H. Beard



"I loved the entire day and all the content. Thank you so very much."


-A.H. Beard



"Sally did a great job particularly as she had to contend with a whole group of women (and one man) during the afternoon after a full on meeting during the morning. She kept us awake and interested for the whole 3 hours. I will definitely consider PD Training for future sessions."


-Amaroo School



"I am definitely 'a raving fan'! From the outset Jessica made us feel welcome & dispelled any barriers that might have surrounded a group of strangers. I felt that Jessica took particular interest in each participants needs & goals of the course & directed the teaching to suit the individual as well as the group. Really got more out of the course than I expected! Would recommend the course to anyone."


-Private Obstetrician



"Thanks Derrick, an excellent presentation. It will start me on the journey to share my passions..."


-Public Course Participant



"The course was great, however given the time restriction I feel like we barely scratched the surface. I took a lot of useful information away from the session."


-DPM



"Pam was amazing! Her delivery and positive nature allowed you so feel and settle in comfortably."


-Kirana Growing People


 

"Amazing trainer ! Would attend any other of her sessions again."


-Programmed


 

"I have learned about public speaking/presenting in the past, and the training with Siobhan has proven to be most useful by far. Although it was just one day, I have learned some valuable tips. The session was structured well and we got to practice in a safe and fun environment. It was nice to learn about the sociology behind the tips."


"Best training we've done and it doubled as a team bonding day :)"

 

"Siobhan was a great trainer. In a short amount of time she warmed up the room and made everyone feel comfortable practising public speaking techniques. She gave useful tips and good feedback. The group took a lot away from the session and I would highly recommend Siobhan as a public speaking trainer."


-Ndevr


 

"A fantastic course. As someone with lots of experience in public speaking (but with no formal training), I was a bit worried that the course would involve a lot of "nice to know" stuff and not offer much relevant learning, but I needn't have worried. Jill tailored the course to meet the needs of all participants and I can safely say that I got what I expected to get out of the course and more and it was a thoroughly engaging and enjoyable experience."


-DFES BEB


 

"Great trainer - wish Origin would have provided us with a longer session. Siobhan is an asset to your company!"


 "Really enjoyed the course. The trainer made it highly engaging and interactive."


"I enjoyed the course a lot and learnt how t o be more positive in a particular environment. The course helped me build my confidence, I wish I could have more of such sessions."


-Origin Organisational Capability - Upstream


 

"Great Trainer, she made us all feel comfortable and was very genuine and relatable. Best trainer I've had."

-Associated Retailers Limited


 

"This course was great for me. Mark the trainer was very helpful I would recommend him to anyone. A++"


-Downer Group PTY LTD


 

"Peter was excellent. Best trainer I've had. really in tune with the needs of the group and very direct in a supportive manner."

 

"Trainer was excellent and help people step out of their comfort zone."

 

-Westpac


 

"The course was amazing. The facilitator was amazing, always made us feel very comfortable but also made us leave our comfort zone (very necessary for public speaking) in a very safe and respectful way. Always gave us constructive feedback and what to do in order to achieve the wanted results. I would recommend this course 100% and I am very thankful the course was facilitated by such an amazing professional and person. Thanks so much!"


-Fuji Xerox Supplies


 

"I found the course to be a great refresher as have both trained and received training in the content in my earlier career. I had forgotten how useful the concepts are and feel invigorated to re-apply to my current role and company. Siobhan was great, extremely knowledgeable about how the brain works and providing additional psychological perspectives to advance the info to a deeper level."


"I found the body language portion of the course extremely useful as I had never really had training specific to this and it will be important to future roles. Also, controlling and being aware of my body language during presentations is always something that I have found difficult to develop, so I will most certainly incorporate my learnings from this segment."


"Siobhan was a fantastic trainer, she was fully of energy and made learning about public speaking a delight. Lot's of fun and useful. I'm in a phone based role but the skills learnt will be helpful for my development."


-Eventbrite Au Pty Ltd


 

"Most: the experience of the presenter was obvious/ She had a wealth of experience. It did not take her long to identify the needs of her learner"


-Plumpton House school


 

"I'd like to mention how incredible I think Siobhan is as a trainer. She was really positive and fun and has a huge base of knowledge. She kept the energy in the room so positive all day and made learning really fun. I came away feeling more confident and like I'd learnt a lot in a day."


-Eastern Victoria GP Training


 

"Best course I have ever done!"


-Royal Australian Air Force


 

"Great small group of people. Our trainer Peter was very engaging and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend to any friend looking to improve their confidence with public speaking."


-Your Hot Property


 

"I thoroughly enjoyed the training. This is because of Siobhan's practical and energetic approach to delivering the training course. Everything that Siobhan has shared during the training I have implemented immediately in my work context."


-Equity Trustees


 

"Siobhan was excellent! She made the course very enjoyable and all participants were engaged throughout. The day was tailored to our needs as a group and I personally found it an extremely useful training day and the topics learnt are invaluable."


-Individual Course Participant


 

"It was a great course, with an excellent teacher!"


-IXL Home

 

"The trainer (Peter) is really good. He puts energy on what he discussed preventing the discussion to be boring. I learned a lot from him."

 

Ecolab Pty Ltd

 

 

"This PD session for me was one of the best I have ever attended. The small group was fantastic for people who lack confidence in public speaking. I came away feeling extremely happy and confident within myself with how the day went. I have already made recommendations to the department for future training suggestions. Thank you Derrick :)"

 

Individual Course Participant

 

"Instructor was fantastic. Some participants were not familiar with public speaking, for those more nervous about the experience it would also have been a good option to have participants pair up to provide a presentation together on what each learned at the end of the course. Content was useful and the instructor did a good job at using practical examples and exercises rather than pure text book learning."

In-House Training We’ll focus on what matters most to you and tailor to your context


Live Online or Hybrid Class Tailored to Your Needs

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.

We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.

Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.

live online & hybrid

We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.

You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.

A hybrid class is with some people dialling in, and some people physically together in the same room.
