‘Feel much better about presenting … Fantastic … I can’t wait to put it into practice … Exceeded all expectations … A great day with Philippa @TalkingSpeaking learning something different!’   [Received later:]   ‘ My day with you continues to pay off.  On Friday I organised a Dispute Resolution Seminar for about 60 lawyers.  We had speakers from all over plus some very eminent High Court Judges.  I did not even get nervous this time, after all after the National Conference with over 500 delegates, why would I?!?!’
