"In less than half a day training with Paul, I came out with the tools to handle a media interview and more importantly, the confidence. I certainly look forward to get further coaching."
"The presentation skills course was very worthwhile and extremely useful. Highly recommended for anyone looking to learn how to pack that extra punch when presenting to an audience, or simply anyone looking for some self-improvement. Would give it 6 (or 7, or 8, or 10) stars if I could!"
"Paul brings us self confidence which transforms press interviews into a pleasant journey."
"Paul very quickly builds confidence through a structured media interaction approach and better understanding of expectation and what to."
Double Confirm’s comprehensive presentation skills workshop with Paul was an empowering transformation over a 2-half day intensive training session. Through skill specific exercises, audio & video recording, and review with immediate feedback, our group experienced rapid improvements and were able to achieve our set goals before the end of the program. The learning is comprehensible, the teaching is effective, and the newly acquired skills are practical. I strongly believe anyone can elevate their presentation and public speaking through this workshop.
I find the course really practical and applicable to my day to day job! It has been an amazing learning experience as this was not any other typical training but a very customized coaching session I had with the trainer to work on my presentation skills. I had since been able to deliver my presentations more confidently. I find Paul a very resourceful, inspiring trainer and highly recommend this course to anyone that would like to improve their presentation/public speaking skills.
It has been a wonderful experience attending the workshop with Paul. Paul has been very understanding and nurturing us with the presentation techniques professionally which well addressed to our needs.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my public speaking sessions with Paul. He is able to harness on my strengths and raise my self awareness about my weaknesses to make me a more effective speaker than ever before. I look forward to every session with Paul as I walk away feeling more confident of my public speaking abilities every single time”
“Very delighted to have the opportunity to work with Paul in coaching our senior people on presentations. What he’s particularly appreciated for is how he is able to bring out the best presentation style in each person, by focusing on how they can articulate in the best way, without taking away their personality. Of course Paul’s very soothing radio voice and personable approach is the icing on the cake – people don’t feel uncomfortable working with him and are grateful for the gentle way he helps them to improve. Highly recommended if you want to achieve impact in your presentations in an authentic manner!”
“Paul has a genuine talent to make you feel confident and comfortable on a matter where I learned a lot during our sessions. Thanks to his kindness combined with his right tone, I was able to identify my strengths and weaknesses, and to work on the various aspects that I can improve. A very useful exercise for our professional and private life.”
"Paul is instrumental in helping me gain confidence in public speaking and interviews, which scored me real recommendations and a job promotion at work. His approach is structured and yet flexible according to my needs at each stage. The skills he taught are so practical and easy to remember that they will benefit me for the rest of my life."
"With the Power of Voice Coaching, Paul is taking us on a wonderful and surprising journey. On one hand, very educational, learning a lot of best practices and professional tricks from his huge experience. And on the other hand, very intimate, looking at the hidden voice that we have inside us to be able to speak out with confidence and clarity. Very inspiring and powerful!"
