This gave me greater confidence, and helped me to work on my areas for improvement. Always enthusiastic and engaged, Philippa is a pleasure to work with.

‘ Philippa Hammond gave a regular Training at EASA, called “train the trainer”. Because we regularly present in front of large audiences or give trainings about our specialty. So the group taking this training was interested in improving their skills of connecting with the audience and to work on unconscious habits that impede with that.

I was impressed how Philippa was able to address difficult issues in a gentle manner so that our very mixed group was able to look at each other and improve each others with constructive criticism and encouragement.

The three days flew by and I was quickly realizing that, while I consider myself a good speaker, I would be able to learn from her to get a little better. All of us were non-native speakers, so the starting point was one of different styles and composure. She was able to adapt her encouragement to the authentic style, but still tweaking the way in which a person would look at each speaking event (regardless of length and preparation) as a opportunity to present him/ herself by “putting their best foot forward”.

Again, very good training with very good exercises in training methodologies, that will help me in the future to prepare even more engaging training events myself. Philippa’s liking for people and her ability to stick to a plan, while being friendly and flexible is a big strength.

I think that Philippa would be a great asset to have in any training department; in particular given the challenges of the COVID future, where most events will now be virtual and where staff has to adapt their presentation and teaching style, to rescue and ensure an acceptable level of effectiveness.’

‘As some who is confident in life and in business I lacked something which I feel is looming over me – the prospect of being in front of a camera and talking on video! I found Philippa through local google search and after an initial consultation call I felt at ease and confident that I had found the right person to help me. I found my tuition with Philippa as an experience that just kept giving! My confidence and understanding the lessons and homework given to me grew each week. Now I have gone from feeling and sounding like a bumbling, stumbling robot on video to my more natural, charismatic self – feeling more confident to give speeches without the need to use a teleprompter gadgets etc. Definitely worth the investment and Philippa is genuinely a lovely person with a rich history which makes her great at what she does today. Thanks again Philippa!! :)’
