Testimonials

“Don gave an extremely dynamic and informative talk to our MSc students about strategies to successfully find jobs after graduation. He managed to combine an emphasis on the gravity of the current job climate with encouragement and practical techniques to find positions in these difficult times. The students took away a great deal of useful advice from his presentation, and I hope we might have him present to each of our cohorts.”

Dr Sherrill Stroschein, Senior Lecturer in Politics, University College London

“I was utterly impressed by Don’s ability to illustrate in one hour what I have learnt in an Academic English course running for 10 weeks. What listeners should not expect is a dusty, academic presentation about rhetoric. On the contrary, the concepts Don introduces are really simple, easy to implement and yet highly effective (i.e. using active instead of passive verbs). Don proves that I don’t have to attend 20 lectures on writing methodology to effectively improve my work – mostly, the simple mistakes we make are those that we have to tackle. I highly recommend Don!”

Annemarie Detlef, Undergraduate, Hult International Business School
