Swindon Course - A Total success
The recent McGuire course sparked a lot of interest. With 10 focused new students coming through the course, staff training was also on the agenda. We also had Gareth Gates attend to work on his own speech.
These courses come thick and fast and the recent Swindon course was another example of the success the programme has to offer. 10 new students started the course with a mixture of covert and overt stammers. All quickly became very focused by following directions and worked hard while learning the new breathing technique and tools we taught them. All of them tackled their massive fear of public speaking, as did Gareth Gates who was attending his first McGuire course for a while. Daniel Bell lead the course well with great support from Zabaida Bi and the brilliant graduates who came to not only work on their own speech but to also step up and help the new students. Terry Cardwell and Hannah Reed ran the Staff Training during the 4 days with some very exciting prospects participating. Its amazing how peoples mindsets change during the 4 days and just how an increase in confidence can lead to a huge reduction in fear levels. Well done to all involved in this course. This will be one positive course to remember.
