Here’s just some of the feedback Dare to Dream has received.

Doreen Thompson-Addo

“Usha was hired to deliver training to our clients on effective communication and presentation skills. Working with her from start to finish was a joy. Her professionalism, passion and confidence made working with Usha very easy. Her training received 100% positive feedback from my clients. I would definitely recommend Usha for your professional training needs.”

Noreen Mak’Osewe, Acknowledging Success in Men

“I just want to say again what a pleasure it was to hear you speak at Inspire Business earlier this year. Your message of “Dare to Dream” especially stood out for me and resonates with a personal motto “Dare Boldly to Be Different.” “

Naama Wartenburg, Volunteer Manager, Volunteer Centre Westminster

“As someone who has undergone a Presentation Skills Training given by Usha, I am in awe of her gift for inspiring and connecting with different individuals, and boosting their confidence levels beyond recognition. Prior to a training session with Usha, I was quite nervous about facilitating events and presenting my ideas to a hall full of people. But a combination of Usha’s practical insight and positive feedback, tempered with her characteristic warmth and infectious energy, have equipped me with invaluable tools for doing myself justice when speaking in public. I left Usha’s training feeling like I had fun, yet knew exactly what to do to succeed, where to practice and fine-tune my performance, and how to apply the confidence-building principles we looked at in all areas of my life. These are skills that I have continued to apply. On a separate occasion, I was blown away by Usha’s delivery of her Presentation Skills Training to a group of 16-25 year old volunteers, who were extremely nervous about speaking at a big event. Usha skillfully and sensitively identified the young people’s individual strengths, and took them on the same confidence-boosting journey she had taken me. Each of them later told me how much they enjoyed the session, and the proof was in the pudding as they confidently delivered fantastic presentations in front of sixty volunteer managers!

Marva Bell, Counsellor

“Usha is an amazing woman with a real zest for life. She works with a spirit of excellence and endeavours to bring out the same in others whose life she touches. Usha has a great sense of humour but also a gentle and very sensitive approach which endears her greatly to those she comes in contact with.  Her goal is to take as many as possible to another level and to help others reach their potential and realise their dreams

Donna McAlister, Senior Link Worker, Broadway Children’s Centre

“Thanks again for your very informative session on effective presentation skills. After the course I felt much more confident to present the DV (domestic violence) seminar. I took your advice and ended the session with a quote from the Bible. I got positive feedback and would just like to say thanks again. You were terrific! I will definitely recommend you to anyone who might be interested in doing the course!

Linda Gast, Independent Trainer and Consultant, Criminal Justice and Social Care Sectors

“I worked with Usha in the delivery of presentation skills training workshops for Government. In these events she demonstrated her own personal creativity in producing powerful images which participants could remember – including “how to get your butterflies [in your stomach when undertaking a presentation] to fly in formation! She delivered her materials with passion but with a message that stated clearly that this was something everybody could do, in their own way. She was particularly good at giving individual and specific feedback to each person, in a manner that was relevant to her audience. It was a joy to work with her while she created an uplifting and skills enhancing environment
