Mary's course is absolutely crucial to anyone looking to improve their confidence and presentation skills. I used to be really nervous before presenting in school and that was reflected by everyone watching. However after this course I am more confident when presenting and feel a lot better about myself up on stage. The classes are very fun and creative, as well as being a great way to meet new people. I would definitely encourage people to do it as the results have been outstanding for me and my friends.

'' I loved doing this course this term. It has been one of my favourite things I have done in TY so far. For 13 weeks we learned about importance of engaging your listeners, pause, emphasis and structuring presentations and speaking in front of others. I enjoyed this course and  recommend it to other TY students.  Isabelle McCarthy - TY 2016/17  Mt Anville
