Here is a review of my classes from M. Farid, NHS surgeon:
''It has been a tremendous journey to reach the ultimate taste of success. It all happened credit to Nicole Tattersall. I attended a higher surgical training interview 3 times without any luck. I realised that my main weakness is the delivery of knowledge rather than the scientific basis behind it. The turning point was the day I called Nicole asking for confidence speech coaching.
She has been exceptional on so many levels. The specific tasks she planned were tailored for my weaknesses and gradually targeted each part of my speech. Her ability and insight was amazing in detecting the subtle difficulties in my communication style. The practice we had showed immense difference in my speech delivery within 1 month. My colleagues noticed it and were very impressed with how I evolved in such a short time. I went on to retake the exam after having lessons with Nicole and was thrilled to pass with the top 10 highest mark in the UK. My highest grade was for the communication skills module exam- 98%!''
Nicole is super friendly, caring and is very good at catering to the needs in terms of improving my confidence with communicating with people in person and on the phone, things which I have struggled with for a long time.
