“I recently completed the ‘ABC’s of supervising others’ presented by Steve Semmens. As this was the first leadership course I have attended I was pleasantly surprised to find there was only a small group of 4. Having such an intimate group allowed each person to interact and ask questions specific to their circumstances. Steve spoke clearly and focused on subjects that individuals highlighted as challenges for them. Not only was Steve interactive and entertaining, he has given me the ability to walk away with a newfound knowledge that I will now be implementing in my future leadership skills. Even after the the course was completed, Steve followed up with an email containing additional resources that will help me build confidence in my role as a manager. I would highly recommend ‘The Persuader’ courses to any individual who wishes to further develop their skills and leadership knowledge.” – Maggie Smith, Macquarie Medi Spa
