“Jasper’s workshop was brilliant – particularly for those for whom public speaking is a rare experience and/or a scary thought. The course starts where any communication should, thinking about the audience. It dives into the psychology of public speaking and what people can do to get over the fear. It is delivered brilliantly – with energy, vulnerability and expertise. Our team loved it and found it so helpful.”
Jamie – Director of Global Development and Communications

His passion for what he does is real. He was a pleasure to work with and we will definitely be using him more and would wholeheartedly recommend him to others.”
