It is wonderful to approach speaking in new ways with Duncan and to find that just communicating in slightly different ways can drastically change
the amount of anxiety I feel on a stage.

I would absolutely recommend working with Duncan if you want to get the most from your presentation and create some energy
around your project.

Silverbean hired Duncan for a 3-day workshop to help the whole agency improve its communication and presentation skills. It’s always a big ask to take our teams away from client work for 1 day never mind 3 but there were absolutely no regrets. Duncan was extremely engaging and more importantly, useful.
— Lucy Botham: Head of Sales Silverbean
Excellent training, should be compulsory for all staff
