Southampton City Council

“I don’t normally give glowing recommendations but this workshop was certainly one of the better ones that I have attended. I learnt some valuable techniques that I will be able to apply in any number of potentially nerve-wracking situations, and Chris was the perfect trainer. He was enthusiastic, encouraging and gave valuable feedback at all stages. I have recommended Skillstudio to my colleagues as I believe they will benefit from attending such a course. In the short space of time since attending the workshop on Monday, I have already noticed a difference in my vocal impact, so I know it was money well spent.”
