FALL IN LOVE WITH PRESENTING
With so many presentation skills and pubic speaking courses out there, how do you choose the best one, the right one for you?
Here’s what #FILWP graduates say.
CONFIDENTLY ON MY WAY TO BEING A PROFESSIONAL PRESENTER
The best bit for me was realising the importance of meeting the audience where they’re at. It was also very powerful to learn exactly how to engage my audience, because that’s the way to grab their attention and make it fun and interesting for them.
I now have the confidence to be called on any minute and deliver a wonderful presentation, as I know exactly what to do and how to do it.
I only realised after the course how valuable attending it was to help me move towards being a professional presenter!

ENGAGING, FUNNY, WITTY, SMART AND INFORMATIVE
Bennie enjoys what he does and loves people! It comes across in the way he presents, as he is entertaining and informative; it’s just like having a chat with a really good friend!
Most of all, he is hugely interactive and engaging, funny, witty, smart and informative. His ability to read people is a plus because he draws each one out, talking at their level and pace so that you can absorb what he says.

Feeling empowered and excited!
I’ve had the pleasure of been in several courses where Bennie shared his passion for presenting through stories, music, movement, colour, drawing and demonstrations. It always left me with a great feeling of wanting more, because he always gives 100%. He not only encourages you to do the same, but creates a safe space to learn, explore and push through your potential. I am amazed at the learnings, knowledge, skills and confidence I now feel through his teaching and feel empowered and excited about my future. Thank you Bennie – I love your work!Leith Angela Jeffery
A life changing event!
Attending the course was one of the greatest things I have done for myself in a very long time – it was a life-changing event!
I always found it difficult to engage my audience and usually did my presentations in monologue; now I have a recipe to change all that. You have a refreshing and amazing presentation style and I learnt so many things that I will be able to apply – and it was a really fun way of learning.
An unexpected bonus
I found the entire course hugely valuable; if I had to choose one aspect it would be learning how to engage the audience, especially as I can see it’s broader applications. I really appreciate your attention to your audience, and felt that you had our best interests at heart at all times. The tapping really feels like it’s shifted something which is an unexpected bonus. Above all else, I felt held and cared for – which is a rather weird thing to get from a course!Justin Wolff
VALUABLE PRACTICAL EXERCISES AND HELPFUL GROUP FEEDBACK!
I wanted to learn technical skills and get personal feedback, and I received both, plus a very significant ‘aha’ of what had been holding me back from going out there and presenting.
The practical exercises were very valuable (and low-stress!!), and the variety of groups and the skillful and compassionate way feedback was given, was very helpful.
A HUGE CONFIDENCE BOOST
I left this course with a huge boost of confidence, because I now know exactly how and where to start and what to work on.
The tapping bonus session was also huge for me because now I finally understand why teaching took so much out of me.
This course should be a prerequisite for teachers; I absolutely recommend it to anyone who wants to improve how they present.

HOW 3 DAYS CHANGED 62 YEARS
I just had to tell you what the #FILWP course meant to me.
EMBARRASSED AND HUMILIATED FOR YEARS
Finally, I could put to rest the subconscious feeling I was going to be embarrassed and humiliated whenever I was in a situation where I was “out the front” or “put in the spotlight” or “singled out”. I know I didn’t consciously realise this but I knew the feeling of intense embarrassment and humiliation and never wanted to feel it again. So I would avoid any situation where it could happen or where I could be made to stand in front of people, whether it be at school, work, social situations etc. I felt very shy and awkward because this caused me to stay in my shell if there was any likelihood of becoming singled out. I would be at the back of the group or looking somewhere else so I couldn’t be singled out.
I had waited a long time for your course to be within my vicinity and knew it was where I needed to go to overcome these feelings and shine in my own light.
The other thing I realized is I have 38 years of personal development history which I haven’t utilized to my fullest all because I was so scared to feel that embarrassment and humiliation again.
I ALREADY KNOW ENOUGH, NOW!
I realized during #FILWP how much experience I have and how I have not had enough confidence to do all of it. Yep, I have facilitated, run webinars, sold into courses like The Bali Gathering, spoke in front of audiences from 20 to 300, but what I put myself through to do that was devastating, and of course I never thought I was any good, no matter what people told me. I certainly didn’t love and accept myself after any of these performances, because really that is all it was, a performance, the real me wasn’t on that stage.
I thought that was what I needed to do and agonized and vomited my way to the stage. Then when it was finally over and I could have time to myself, I cried all the way home in embarrassment and humiliation. Chastising myself for the poor job I had done. The times, because of my fears I have totally stuffed up talks to people because of the overwhelming feeling of being embarrassed and humiliated. I finally can realise just how much I have to offer the world and not be worried whether they like it or not.
AFTER 62 YEARS, I FINALLY KNOW THAT I CAN DO THIS
I am struggling to explain the enormity of what I learnt through the weekend. I finally felt I could do this. I always wanted to speak from the heart and show my enthusiasm for what I believe is wonderful in the world. Now, thanks to you for creating this course I feel I can do this. I got a touch of that at the weekend.
The course was so gentle in helping us to realise our fears and of course our “terror barrier” when I heard those words I knew, phew, because of my trust in you, I can take a deep breath I am in the right place. It was amazing how I could feel the feelings that seemed so huge and so insurmountable and still love and accept myself anyway. I didn’t ever know this could be fixed.
I have waited 62 years to finally put this to bed and from the bottom of my heart I can’t thank you enough.
A PROFOUND STRESS RELEASE
The stress release sessions I had never experienced before but the amazing feeling I woke up with each morning and the peace with which I went to sleep was amazing and mind-boggling, I would lie in bed just enjoying the feeling of completeness. I didn’t know trauma was held in the body but now I realise it and can do something about it.
MY HEART IS FULL, AND I’M READY
My heart is so full with gratitude that I am finding it hard to put into words how amazing #FILWP was for me. Certainly a life changer that’s for sure. Now as you say practice practice practice. What a magician you are for creating such a wonderful course/workshop that is so needed in every area of people’s lives today. I don’t think I know anyone who couldn’t benefit in so many areas of their life by doing Falling In Love with Presenting. After all how many times a day do we present ourselves to the world in so many situations.
I know I am going to present to the world in an entirely different light.
Thanks so much Bennie, keep doing what you are doing.
