Feedback from my participants of a webinar in June 2020

The host was very engaged and did a great job to provide an interactive seminar despite the fact that it was a remoteseminar. I especially liked the surprise talk we had to give at the end“ 

Very practical approach that was centered on personal feedback. Personal video training. Easy to follow and clear structure of the overall session and themes.“ 

Through partner and group discussions as well as practical exercises, the whole session was very lively, which I very much liked.“ 

Tipps about the use of pauses. Practical exercises. Nice and open atmosphere.“ 

The process of identifying what one does well and what can/should be improved.

Reviewing the short spontaneous presentations that were recorded. Also the fact that Steve addressed all of our questions we sent him in advance and that the meeting was very well structured.“
