A Recent Case Study

Assertiveness & Self Confidence Course with Tarran Deane | #communication #negotiation #presentationskills #publicspeaking #seminar #workshop #Keynotespeaker #executivecoach

Case Study: 86 people, 18-30 years, listing 132 fears about communication. Many of their key concerns were centred on self-confidence, wanting the approval of others, loyalty technique and skill. Feedback Tarran received: “I am stunned at how you had everyone up and involved! By far the best workshop I have done in my 7 years of coming to this event and to see the change in that young man – from quiet and self-conscious, to standing at the front of the room with the microphone… wow. Simply life changing for him!’ said Nathan.
