"Thank you for yesterday – so far I have had three people tell me it is the best training that they’ve ever been on, and one describing you as inspirational and this is from a team that are often quite reserved in their judgements! As you may imagine, we’re delighted by the response and the enthusiasm this has generated"

Alison McNamara
Organisation Development Manager
Viridian Housing

"It worked really well and everyone had a lot of fun working together in such a creative way. The workshop gave us great practical tools that we can go on using. We’d be delighted to recommend you in the future"

Head of Corporate Fundraising

"Excellent - engaging, sensitive, critical (in a positive way) and authoritative"

Tom Burstow
Head of International Inspiration


"The feedback from delegates was overwhelmingly positive. I would have no hesitation in recommending Opposite Leg "

Celia Dignan


"I had the privilege to attend a very thought-provoking session run by David that made me see my presenting skills differently. The session covered several aspects ranging from confidence, breathing techniques and self-awareness exercises, to audience impact and getting more comfortable with feeling uncomfortable in different situations. All very practical and enjoyable, a great pleasure, thank you. "

Ana Canabarro
Learning & Development Manager
Mitie Client Services


"Inspiring training that can be internalised during the sessions and used at work straight after the course. The “learn by doing” training course was interactive and allowed you to practice and experiment with the different techniques to develop confidence and presentation skills. The trainers, David and Guy were able to adapt the training to our needs and delivered an effective, fun course; everyone wanted to attend all the sessions"

David Bakst
Sabien Technology

"Guy and his colleague have worked for us over the course of the last couple of years and have delivered quality development that was also enjoyable, fun yet challenging - with little or no powerpoint. Always a plus!!"

Tracy Bell-Reeves
Assistant HR Director
Canterbury Christ Church University

"I have learned through several sessions with David the effect that breath could have on my body and the influence that I could have on others through voice supported by breath and natural body... understanding how powerful this self-control technique could be was such an enlightenment."

Kiyotaka Noji
Deputy General Manager
JX Nippon Exploration and Production

"This has to be the best training course I’ve ever been on! It was practical, different (and fun)! Makes a big change from all the usual boring theory courses that you forget after a week. I now feel 100% more confident in getting up to present to in front of an audience. Thank you Guy!"

"David came to our office and ran a day on Presentation Skills Training. A very enjoyable day was had by all and mountains of confidence was gained from the group on talking in front of a group of people. I would highly reccomend David and Opposite Leg if asked in the future."

Mark Smith
Events Manager
Barracudas Charity


"It was the best training I have ever done"

Barracudas Charity


"The Influencing Stakeholders workshop with Guy Michaels was a brilliantly fun and interactive day that bought home the power of small subtle changes we can make to influence both those directly around us (work colleagues, friends, family) and those we would like to influence (senior managers, presentation panels). Techniques could be put into effect immediately and I hope to use the skills and training throughout my personal/professional life. Highly recommended"

Bhapinder Singh
Qualification Development Leader


"David has an amazing presence and an ability to engage a group and take them on a journey. All the participants of his Advanced Presentation Skills training came away with something that they could implement. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and have had people comment on the noticeable improvement in my presentations as a result. I highly recommend David's training."

Temina Milovanovic

"I just wanted to let you know that your training helped us secure a lot of money yesterday... We had been asked to give a presentation to a large committee and had planned moods, approaches and how to keep the tempo up and enthusiastic as well as how to engage with a difficult group of people. When we got there they had changed their minds and wanted to ask a series of difficult questions instead of a presentation which, on top of keeping us waiting for an hour, could have finished us off however we were able to roll into it and use our planning to achieve the right mood and dynamism as originally intended - it worked!"
