Highly informative, entertaining and interesting.

It was entertaining, and explained things beautifully. It was great.

Right from the get go, Shaun was engaging and warm. The content was well ordered, clear, interactive and constructive.

The content is very relevant professionally. I would definitely recommend this presentation.

I would personally attend again. Shaun goes where good educators go, however he makes it real, cool and relevant.

Really interesting, great mix of styles, had the staff engaged and participating.

Consolidated what I am currently doing but also provided refreshers.

Brilliant – you made it really fun.

I really did enjoy it. The best workshop I have attended.

Love the varied format of the session. So much more interesting than other sessions I have been to.

Thank you, you made a fairly dull subject very enjoyable.

Just great! Thank you! I will ensure all my staff attend this workshop. It is credible and well presented and certainly not confronting.

Thanks Shaun, much appreciated. I thought it was a great workshop and have already recommended this to my manager for other staff to attend.

Best workshop I have ever been to. Humour and variety the order of the day.

Used a variety of learning styles to accommodate all members of the audience.

Best workshop I’ve been to. Presenter was very clear and easy to follow.

I thought this was the best facilitated workshop of its kind that I have attended. I will tell all my colleagues that they missed a great day.

The right balance. Concentrated with an appropriate focus on structure and the writing process, with just enough distilled information on punctuation and grammar.

A great refresher. Makes you rethink how/why you write in a particular style. Covered all the basic rules.

Well done – brilliant workshop and clearly a lot of thought has gone into how to make a ‘dry’ subject entertaining and fun.

So much information in such a short time!! I could have listened to Shaun for days.

LOVED the workshop. Shaun had so much passion!!

Hard to fault, one of the most useful and engaging presentations I’ve been to.

The best training course I have attended for a long time – made the subject come alive; innovative take away materials.

Educational and entertaining. A workshop I won’t forget, with takeaway material that will be used.

Thanks for an enjoyable day. Content was perfect. Great resources were provided to us that I know I will use.

The workshop covered a wide range of information that I found relevant and useful.

It was interactive, engaging, and relevant. I gained a lot from it, and I will definitely recommend it to others.

Best training program I have been to. I was surprised that I was engaged/interested for so long.

I was surprised at how good it was for staff of all levels. A good mix of explanation, visual and interactive information. A really interesting presentation.

I found your program to be a refreshing change from past training programs. The venue and food were great. Most of all the variation and interesting delivery kept my attention throughout.

It was a joy and I can take a lot away.

Thanks. There was nothing boring about the presentation, best one I’ve attended!
