“I cannot recommend DK highly enough – we just had our second very well attended event with him “Presenting Engagingly Online”, which has received fantastic feedback from all the participants.”
“I've been partnering with DK for years. He is always creative, practical fun and immensely valuable as a coach and presenter so when the opportunity arose for him to deliver Presenting Engagingly Online to both JumpShift and Adeption I leapt on it. As expected the session was highly engaging, impactful and has resulted in a number of improvements to how I and our wider team presents online. I couldn't recommend it enough.”
“We were very privileged to have DK present to Kiwibank as part of our Knowledge Cafe series. His presentation highlighted tips and tricks for improving as a public speaker, and I was very impressed with both the presentation and his advice. As someone that fears presenting, his tips provided easy yet elegant advice for how to overcome that fear. ”
“I recently had DK run the ‘presenting engagingly online’ session at a virtual conference I was managing for our organization. We had many great speakers, but based on the feedback (and my opinion too!) DK’s was the highlight. The session included tangible take aways that I use daily while presenting and was fun and energetic. Coordinating the session with DK was a breeze (even with the time difference), and he tailored his approach to fit the group I was working with. Could not recommend enough!”
“We contracted DK to run several sessions with members of our leadership team and other staff who are required to present ideas, solutions, explanations and work flow information to clients and audiences. The sessions were so insightful and the feedback was extremely positive, even the most cynical were surprised at what they could achieve and change the way one approaches preparation and off the cuff speaking. A highly productive and useful experience and one we will repeat.”
“Even experienced professional speakers need help sometimes! Recently I had a showcase event for 200 conference organisers. I was so nervous, because I wanted to do such a good job (and have them book me, and my agent love me more). DK worked with me on my message, story, slide deck. He helped me get the cadence and rhythm of my talk just right (and I nailed it). His coaching made all the difference, and the bookings have been pouring in.”
“This is the second time that I have engaged DK to work with our team to help us sharpen our collaborative story-telling skills. As architects and designers, everything we engage in is collaborative. Our ability to continue to win work is highly dependent upon our ability to tell collaborative stories to our potential clients in a credible and engaging way. DK helped us develop techniques and approaches that are intuitive, memorable, and highly impacting. I would recommend DK to any person or organization that wants to get better at connecting with their clients in meaningful ways.”
“I was fortunate to have DK’s coaching on preparing for an industry event presentation. DK brings a refreshing approach to workshopping the structure, content and style for delivering a memorable presentation. He’s very much focused on engaging with your audience and is great to have involved early in your process.”
“When in lockdown, at Pharmac we asked DK to deliver a zoom presentation on ‘presenting engagingly online.’ Our objective was to give staff an opportunity to connect virtually after we had all shifted to working from home and we had few opportunities for a shared experience. We used DK’s prepared session to shift from presenting in this new medium (zoom) to how we adapt generally, with shifting mediums as a metaphor for the broader pressure on all of us to adapt and change in response to our external environment. Staff really enjoyed the session and I consider DK’s role as catalyst to have been really helpful.”
