“Dustin Leffingwell was my instructor. He was very attentive to each student throughout the course. He kept us engaged and was very energetic. Dustin was also very responsive, I called him to clarify something and he got back to me right away. I want him to be at all my presentations to cheer me on lol. Thanks Dustin!”

“I loved the flexibility of the virtual training sessions. I travel for work and already lose precious family time. The virtual class was perfect for me! Dustin was very positive and gave me tools/techniques to feel confident speaking. Also, working on the “intent” of the presentation not the “content” has been a great tip in creating power point presentations. I highly recommend Effective Presentations training!”
