Very impressed. Really grateful you could shape your workshop to suit.
Cheryl was very patient, encouraged me throughout the whole process. I was given practical and logical process utilising the Presentation Mapper which I know I will use time and time again. Also having unlimited access to all the resources when needed is a huge bonus... can't thank you enough!
Love the practical tools and techniques which will be easily applied from now on. Fantastic facilitator also.
Brilliant, engaging course that provides relevant skills and knowledge
It's a punchy yet extremely effective online presentation course for those who are time poor. Cheryl is an amazing presenter in her own right. So many wonderful tips were covered in a short time and yet we never felt rushed. Kudos and mad respect for her.

Cheryl is a fabulous facilitator that ensures all participating are engaged and brought in to the learnings being shared! A great experience and have been left with skills to embed not just when presenting but in my everyday!
Cheryl is a great facilitator, who knew her stuff. She made the content relatable and easy to follow. Her feedback sessions were genuine and purposeful, which lead to amazing presentations for the group.
Was negative when I came. I left with a different attitude. It was awesome.
Essential for anyone doing presentations – so basically everyone.
Fantastic program with deliverables that can be used immediately.
Really great program built around specific tools and techniques that are easy to use and understand.
Before this program I thought I had seen it all, attending course after course that started with the message "Just use our method and your presentations will get better (zzzzzzz....)". I started with the expectation that it would be another snooze-fest. How wrong was I! SecondNature's learning practice takes you step-by-step through a method that delivers exceptional, persuasive presentations in way that I've never seen before but that makes a great deal of sense. I’m now looking forward to using my new skills and kicking some career goals, thanks to the SecondNature Team!
I would highly recommend this program. Cheryl tailored the content to me and my goals and was a brilliant coach.
Very well structured program with good flow, great presenter.
Highly recommended. Complete transformation from where I felt I was.
I have worked with many global corporate training consultants over the past 23 years and in my opinion, secondnature are one of the best.

The course was much less intense than other public speaking groups that I've completed in the past, and much more relevant to the business world.

Each section was very considered.

Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia (ICAA)
Hands on and interactive program.
A must have training that all BDMs should attend, simply fantastic.
Jacobs (previously SKM)
Loved the program! Very practical, extremely useful.
I've been doing formal and informal presentations to small and large audiences for 20+ years and while I knew I was quite OK at it, it was something I'd largely developed along the way, and I'd never had any kind of formal training or evaluation, especially with online presentations. The programme provided lots of small, practicable insights that are relevant to everyone, including the more experienced who think they know it all (i.e. me). The feedback is also easy to address. By keeping my eye on the things Gareth pointed out, I can tell that my presentation skills have improved markedly in a short time.
Provides great tools and structure for presenters at all levels – beginner to experienced.
Great program - I came away with increased confidence in presenting and a toolbox to create logical flowing presentaiotns that are tailored to the audience.

Great structure, framework, and relevant tips and feedback.
Great course to deliver great presentations that are concise and easy to digest.
I found the training to be very specific to my needs and can see a great benefit from going through the sessions. It was organic and natural, very much focused on my personal and business needs. The facilitator Cheryl was a pleasure to work with. Although I have just completed the course I think the option of ongoing remote support and online resources available through the portal will be very beneficial.
Very useful and enjoyable day. Framework is very powerful tool. Lots of great tips.
In just two sessions, Second Nature provided me with the tools, advice and confidence to create persuasive presentations. Cheryl was fantastic, her expertise and encouragement allowed me to think about presenting in new ways, and let go of some of my anxiety in this area. Professional development has never been more enjoyable!
Outstanding structure. Powerful tool. Customised advice and coaching. This is one of the most practical training sessions for managers to make the transition to senior managers’ skills and confidence.
We were fortunate to have Cheryl train 28 Mars ANZ Graduates on presenting skills, delivering a compelling story, and engaging an audience at our recent L&D week. Cheryl was outstanding and had the full attention of the room all day! Her content is highly relevant and engaging, and her warm and approachable personality made the session a real delight for the new grads. I highly recommend Cheryl and the team at SecondNature and look forward to using her services to increase capability and support our learning & development within our business. Kate Mason, Early Careers Manager, ANZ Mars Global Services
Cheryl’s presence was unmatched. Made me excited to improve skills rather than nervous to present.
Covered areas of presenting I’d never thought about. Loved the ‘sirens’ which helped regain maximum attention for our purpose points.
This would take most people from 0 to hero in presentations.

I strongly recommend secondnature, the difference is, they can take you right from the basics and build confidence or greatly refine what you already know.
The best course I've attended, a huge amount of credit to Belinda's skill, knowledge and trainnig techniques.
Great, awesome insights into presenting better.

Fantastic program with direct application. I’m excited to being planning my next presentation.
Forget what you know about presenting - secondnature will give you the tools & skills to own any room!
The two day training was eye-opening, immediately useful and the most fun team building experience I've ever had. Wish I could buy a book written by you. Genuinely one of, if not the, best professional training workshops I've ever done. It will improve your presenting ability more thah you thought possible. Hands down the most valuable course to date - why? Because I can use these skills almost weekly and in so many ways. Very hands-on, practical and interactive but with zero awkwardness.
Regal Funds Management
I enjoyed it more than I thought I would…not your normal mumbo-jumbo; very practical…I have to admit to being a bit cynical coming to the workshop.

Engaging and left with an eagerness to apply techniques moving forwards.

This Program really gets you thinking more than just the context/material. Focuses on doing an audience analysis, how to structure and how to end before putting in the content.

Thermo Fisher Scientific
I now question every presentation that I have ever given prior to today in terms of flow and effectiveness.
Extremely engaging, tailored and personal approach to improving individual presentation skills.
Amazing. I didn’t think a 2-Day workshop would create such a positive impact.
This (online) program was clever in the way it adapted its content to fit with these challenging covid times. I could really see how much I had absorbed in the 5 workshops when I was able to present a previous presentation using the skills learnt. I was almost embarrassed about how bad my initial presentation was. Thank you Second Nature!
Straight to the point with engaging slides and a fantastic facilitator. Cheryl is an incredibly talented presenter who keeps you engaged and informed. The (online) course taught me a lot of presentation skills which I would not have known otherwise. Thanks Cheryl!
Paradigm shift in presentation planning and delivery.
High engaging course, with hugely impactful content that will make a difference to how you view presentations from henceforth.
It is an amazing program - I absolutely adore the mapper it is really helpful and can be used to present any topic! Cheryl is a brilliant facilitator!
I think of presentation as storytelling. The presentation mapper is a great way to curate your story and structure it in a logical way to deliver it grab the audience's attention. It helps you think if the story you want to tell and help you find the best way to tell it. Cheryl was amazing and very patient, great interactive sessions.
Great program that improved my presentation skills and deck with a personal coaching. My deck used to have too many words. Now, I use a variety of visuals to deliver the message. Everyone who is presenting must attend this program.
If you're time poor you really need to make time for this course.
I've always felt I'm an ok presenter but really wanted to take my skills to the next level - to feel that I present with conviction and inspiration - especially when I'm presenting on behalf of my organisation. Presenting for Applause absolutely helped me achieve that. The framework felt so obvious that initially I wasn't sure I was learning anything new, but the way it all came together when I applied it to a major presentation blew me away. I actually enjoyed the presentation I delivered (unheard of for me!) and couldn't believe how much my confidence had grown. I could not recommend the course more.
Highly recommend it to anyone who wants to improve presentation skills.
An informative and engaging short program filled with surprisingly many practical and common-sense tips and techniques for presenting with impact and confidence.
Fantastic course. I really enjoyed learning practical skills that will help me immensely in my day-to-day role.
Fantastic program to gain practical skills to deliver effective presentations.
Awesome program I will strongly recommend to anyone wanting to sharpen their presentation skills.
...secondnature helped elevate a training program into an 'experience'. I cannot rate the program more highly.
Cheryl was a superstar, and really helped me and the Veeam team with structuring presentations with the aid of a presentation mapper. With the majority of us presenting remotely using video conferencing, Cheryl provided very useful feedback on how we can appear and sound more professional on camera.
If you want to get a message across to a group and gain their acceptance follow this program.
A compelling two day journey that gets the best from everyone.
