“On the Reader’s Course we really value the contribution of someone who brings a really practical application to the development of voice and body language. Richard has been working with us since October 2012, and in that time has helped many of our barristers develop these essential skills in order to communicate effectively.”

Jacqueline Stone, Victorian Bar, Reader’s Course

“Richard managed to persuade a fairly sceptical group of participants to step out of their comfort zone, which increased their confidence levels. An unusual and valuable component was his providing each of them with insightful, individual, real-time feedback, which they were able to implement immediately.”

Laura Grant, Graduate Resourcing Consultant, Lander & Rogers

“You graphically reminded me of the value of giving the voice (your instrument) its full potential.”

Ian Gray, State Coroner

“He marries his passion and excitement with a dynamic leadership style that people gladly follow. I’m delighted to recommend him.”

Tony Parsons,(former) CEO Victorian Legal Aid

“I particularly liked the work on stature… This really helped me soon after the course in dealing with some intimidating witnesses in a matter. I was able to adopt it and take control of the meeting.”

Shawanah Tasneem, Crown Prosecutor, Canberra
