Michael Licenblat was an outstanding presenter and his format was both informative and interactive so the time went very quickly. I found the session positive and rewarding; the concepts he covered and the breadth of experience he drew on resonated with men and women alike, from my observation, more so because they were real situations drawn from his life. As his training is very soundly based in both his academic and broader professional training his genuine commitment to the concepts he espoused was obvious.– Jane Clarke, Project Management Consultant, City of Port Phillip
You may be interested to know that we had a nurse meeting today and the nurses said that they are using your training tips in the course of their triage phone calls to great effect. As we know, many people attend training and the learnings disappear after a while and people can slide back to old habits. I think it is a great testimony to the efficacy of your session as it has formed part of their work practices and still does.– Deidre Rennick, Management Business Development West Vic Division of General Practice
We usually only have speakers from within the real estate industry speak at our events, however the choice to bring in Michael Licenblat, an external speaker, has proven to be an excellent choice. Michael quickly engaged our group and showed that he understood our industry. Michael’s resilience presentation was both entertaining and hands on, giving our property management teams some practical communication tips, and self management tools, that will add great value to their relationships with their clients. I look forward to working with Michael again.– Nick Dowling, CEO, The Jellis Craig Group
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your professionalism and excellence in the delivery of the workshops to our consultants on “How to deal with negative and difficult people – without becoming drained”. The feedback from the session has been extremely positive. You provided a ‘toolbox’ for our people on both a personal and professional basis so that they are able to tackle each and every appointment with a clear mind, and you provided practical tips on how to handle a work-life balance. Most interesting was the segment about reading and understanding pressure profiles. This segment has motivated our consultants to think about our internal and external relationships and why they, and the people they work with, react to pressure situations in different ways.– Gaye Berry, Operational Trainer, Sarina Russo Job Access – Victoria
