What Our Clients Say About Us

“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!”
Leah Rumore
Site Safety Manager, The Middlesex Corporation
“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!”
