What our clients say

I really enjoy learning and refining my existing capabilities. To this end, a senior executive of a FTSE100 company recommended that I tried The Method to focus on enhancing my presentation skills. The one-to-one sessions were interactive and helped me refine three things: engaging an audience, selling my vision and the art of actively listening. I use the skills I developed from The Method on a daily basis, and ensure that I use the right behaviours at the right time to communicate effectively. There were several areas where I required improvement. Maria was able to refine my ability to use my voice to dynamise messages, and expertly manage questions when I may not immediately know the answers. In fact, I was so impressed that as a firm we have engaged The Method to coach the entire team.
