Thanks Maurice! The workshop was brilliant, it was impressive how you managed to simultaneously engage, educate and encourage us all.

The ability to deliver engaging and effective presentations is a critical capability requirement within our business and therefore equipping our staff with best practice key principals and skills to deliver presentations to our clients and internal staff is fundamental to this. I reached out to Maurice after reading the course overview for "Presentations With A Difference" and client testimonials on the JEM Coaching International website. What struck me right away about Maurice was firstly, his deep understanding of public speaking and ability to identify what makes a successful presentation from both the recipients and presenters perspectives in any presentation setting and secondly his passion for what he does. Maurice works exclusively on presentation skills and public speaking and that was a huge plus for me. Maurice delivered "Presentations With A Difference" to a number of our senior staff nationally and has received tremendously positive feedback; some of the best feedback I have witnessed in 25+ years leading "Learning and Development" teams. Maurice has a special ability of creating a safe, but challenging and supportive environment for delegates who are purposely taken out of their comfort zone to deliver presentations in front of their peers and provided with in the moment feedback. The sessions have been a huge success and I look forward to continuing our partnership.

Maurice has conducted several “presentation skills workshops” for BYRNECUT. We have had nothing but positive feedback from the attendees with many stating that they have learnt skills that will significantly support them in their roles.
Ashley Campbell
Group Manager SEQT, BYRNECUT
Our team greatly benefited from our session. Most of the staff had varying degrees of presenting experience - typically adopted from on-the-job experience rather than as a result of formal training. Maurice was able to engage the group, identify different levels of experience and ability in the room and deliver a session to suit us all. Even the most experienced and competent presenters walked away having learned some new areas of focus for future presentations. Given the high level of engagement and enjoyment experienced by the group I would recommend Maurice to anyone seeking to enhance their presentation skills.

Maurice recently presented a training session on presentation skills to the Lifeline WA team. The feedback that I received from the session was unanimously positive with one team member telling me that “Maurice’s presentation was one of the best I have attended in over 20 years of corporate work”. The training was interesting and informative and Maurice’s style was described as engaging, encouraging and warm.
Lorna MacGregor
CEO, Lifeline WA
As a Leadership coach and trainer, I found the session to be insightful and necessary. Maurice presents with authenticity and provides you with the tools to improve your "Presentation Skill Set" within minutes of commencing. The strategies and practical methods that are shared are communicated effectively and succinctly ensuring that the attendees receive the message "Loud and Clear". The session challenged my perception of myself and clearly showcases how much you can learn just from one session with Maurice. I highly recommend his services and am a strong advocate for "JEM Coaching International" for anyone looking to improve their ability to present.

Maurice provided valuable insights on public speaking, introduced strategies for better presentations, and included some learn-by-doing coaching sessions. The session was engaging, challenging and definitely a great learning opportunity. It’s a great indication on how much value one can get from a full coaching program with Maurice.

Maurice presented a very professional, knowledgeable and practical workshop on public speaking which impacted our staff greatly. They are now highly motivated to practise what they have learnt and whilst still a little nervous the participants have got their butterflies flying in formation.

I participated in the “Presentations With A Difference” comprehensive full-day coaching program with Maurice Berettieri in Perth. My experience with Maurice was highly rewarding-his guidance was remarkably lucid and succinct. Despite the intensive nature of the full-day training, Maurice's dynamic energy ensured that the session remained engaging throughout. The benefits and insights I gained from this experience were concrete and discernible. Recognising the value of his expertise, I subsequently scheduled several individual sessions with Maurice, aiming to fully leverage his extensive and profound knowledge. Even for seasoned speakers and presenters, I wholeheartedly recommend engaging with Maurice; his unwavering commitment to excellence offers a valuable perspective.

Michael Collins
Principal, CF Global
In my capacity as Events Coordinator at ACS WA, I have come across hundreds of speakers but very few as articulate, engaging and inspiring as Maurice. I had the pleasure to work with Maurice at one of our ACS WA Events, where he delivered an informative session on ''Presentations With A Difference'' to our Young IT Professional members in Western Australia. Dare I say Maurice's presentation was probably the most engaging and interactive session we've hosted in a while. His delivery was FLAWLESS and he was extremely knowledgeable in his area of expertise. Not only he shared actionable tips and steps to be an effective public speaker but he incorporated fun exercises during his talk to get the audience involved and push them out of their comfort zone. Everyone in the room had the opportunity to participate whether by asking questions or sharing a three-minute life experience in front of the crowd (and being coached right then and there!). By the end of the presentation Maurice was flooded with questions from the audience who wanted to learn more. As the Professional Association for ICT Professionals in Australia, the ACS is committed to providing our members with high-quality Professional Development not only in Tech but also Soft Skills. Maurice certainly fulfilled our Member's expectations and I'm certain he will fulfil yours too. 100% recommended to anyone looking to up-skill in Public Speaking!
Alexandra Mollo
Events & Communications Professional, Australian Computer Society, WA Branch
I came to Maurice as an absolute amateur in the public speaking world. What I learnt in our face-to-face and virtual sessions has really given me the confidence to present to a larger audience on a topic that I'm extremely passionate about. Maurice’s attention to detail and his feedback after each session was invaluable. He is extremely passionate about what he does, he is exceptionally competent and an all-round stand-up guy. I will have absolutely no hesitation in using his coaching services again before my next big event and I also could not recommend him enough to others.
Heath Jones
Director, Active & Ageless, Sydney
The presentation skills workshop was a fantastic learning opportunity - very engaging and fun. Maurice is encouraging, genuine and supportive, offering valuable strategies to suit every individual. I highly recommend the "Presentations With A Difference" workshop, it has helped me immensely on my presentation style and confidence.
Carole Chiu
Operations Support, Bankwest
An important part of my role involves Public Speaking. Maurice’s expertise has been of enormous benefit to me as I have moved away from reading scripts to engaging with audiences of students, staff and parents. His professional approach is both supportive and encouraging and he has been able to provide a very high level of mentoring and expertise. Maurice has also worked with our College Leadership Team and our leaders found Maurice’s ideas and insights very beneficial. It is my pleasure to endorse Maurice as an outstanding mentor and workshop presenter.
Robert Henderson
Principal, John XXIII College, Mount Claremont WA
Maurice’s knowledge, expertise and passion around storytelling and presentation skills shone through in our one-to-one coaching sessions. He shared practical skills and strategies which supported me to apply them in my current role. He was wise, sensitive and firm with recommendations to bring out the very best in me as a speaker. I now feel confident to deliver a refined, impactful presentation “from the heart” which is exactly what I was after.

I recently attended the "Presentations With A Difference" workshop and I highly recommend it to anyone. If you are new to public speaking or a seasoned veteran, I can confidently say that you will gain valuable insights on how to deliver better presentations by understanding the principles of effective communication, delivering a clear and concise message, engaging with an audience and projecting confidence. Maurice's guidance and feedback have been invaluable for how I present now and in the future.
Scott Mitchell
Senior Client Manager, Brentnalls, Western Australia
WOW, I can't recommend Maurice highly enough. He delivered a keynote presentation on delivering "Presentations With A Difference" at one of our business growth events. The focus was how to “engage, inform and inspire” your audience and Maurice managed to do that through his presentation by doing the same for us. Everyone was 100% engaged the entire time and we enjoyed the humour but most of all we learned how to structure presentations, how to engage your audience, how to inspire and the power of pause - my favourite. Maurice, thank you - I can't recommend you highly enough for any presentation for any size of company.
Lorraine Garvie
Co-Founder and Director, District32
We were delighted to have Maurice present to the members of District32. Maurice gave superb insights to our members on how to sharpen their skills for presentations and public speaking. The framework and tips that were shared were superb which were well received. It was impressive the way Maurice kept it simple for the audience to grasp the various concepts which will have massive impact on their confidence and how they articulate presentations going forward. The vibe, engagement and the knowledge shared added huge value to our event and we are very grateful to Maurice for sharing his wisdom.
Dean Keating
Sales Director, District32
As a Director of a specialist Work Health & Safety (WHS) company we deliver presentations to all levels of business. Maurice coached, encouraged and guided me to new heights on communication skills. I thoroughly recommend the investment for business leaders and staff, if you want to deliver material in an engaging, informative and constructive way. I can’t wait to experience the reformed approach and engage with our customers.
Chris Morrison

Thank you Maurice Berettieri from JEM Coaching International for presenting to WA WOA yesterday on “Presentations With A Difference”. Your fun and engaging approach had the entire group participating, with memorable experiences and tips to help us all “stand and deliver” for future. We would highly recommend Maurice for your next training session.
Alison Mattes
WA Membership Services Officer at AIRAH
Maurice is an engaging facilitator who provided clear tips and strategies that anyone can implement in their public speaking and presentation tasks. Through utilising audience participation the attendees were able to easily understand the significant difference and impact that applying these techniques can make. This has given our students the confidence to immediately apply and use these techniques to increase their public speaking confidence and efficacy.
Lauren Robertson
Career Development Consultant, Curtin University WA
Maurice presented a session for our MBA students on presentation skills. Throughout the session he "engaged, informed and inspired" the students with his stories and activities which he used to give students practice opportunities and meaningful feedback. Maurice consistently role-modelled the effective use of the "verbal, vocal and visual" communication. Students found the session highly beneficial and enjoyable due to Maurice's attention to delivering a highly informative and fun session with plenty of practical tips. I would highly recommend Maurice's session to anyone wanting to develop these critical "soft skills".
Dr Judy Lundy
MBA Director, School of Business and Law, ECU
At Perth Modern School our "Student House Representatives" are involved in multiple assemblies and group activities where they require excellent presentation, leadership and engagement skills to manage large groups well. Maurice was able to provide an interactive engaging workshop for our students during our leadership development day. He made it very easy to contact, organise and follow-up with our requirements. He was great with the students being able to be comfortable in front of the group, adapt the information to suit them and give them the opportunity to learn, practice, reflect and plan for improvement in future events. Maurice was also very personable with staff and students and he took the stress out of organising this activity. We will definitely be making this a part of our annual student leadership training and expanding this out to our other student leadership groups.
Matthew Healy
Manager Middle Years, Perth Modern School
Once again Maurice has delivered a great session to the students with the perfect mix of expertise and humour. Maurice was able to engage and inform participants. It was a pleasure to work with you again Maurice and I am looking forward to future collaborations.

"Presentations With A Difference" was an insightful look into the "art of being a presenter". With many of us returning to in-person engagements, the session reinforced what it takes to be an engaging and memorable presenter.
Barend Meiring
Secretary, Project Management Institute, Western Australia
Maurice presented at one of our Project Management Institute, Western Australia Chapter meetings. The topic was "Presentations With A Difference". As you can imagine from that title, he presented very well, and the talk was full of useful snippets to help others develop their own presentation technique. A very worthwhile experience. Thank you again Maurice.
Graham Colborne
President, Project Management Institute, Western Australia
A brilliant mentor and guest speaker. Maurice makes presentations very engaging for everyone. His advice has helped me to excel at public speaking as well as doing presentations. One of the best guest speakers I have met and would recommend to anyone that wish to improve their public speaking skills.
Luke Mitchell
Rotaract Club of Rossmoyne
I have been a member of the North Perth Rotary Club for fourteen years, as such I have listened to many guest speaker presentations during this time. On Monday 13th March 2017, Maurice Berettieri of JEM Coaching International visited our club and gave us a presentation on Public Speaking. I found Maurice’s presentation very down to earth, educational and informative. I found Maurice’s engagement with the audience refreshing and entertaining. In speaking to other club members after the presentation this view was shared by all who attended. As a business owner for over 27 years I believe being able to speak confidently to a group of people is very important both in a social context and in a business environment, Maurice’s presentation has inspired me to improve my skills in this area. I will definitely be attending one of Maurice’s public speaking workshops.

Maurice engaged the audience with warmth and authenticity as he shared his knowledge. His illustrations were simple, powerful and added visual stimulation. Maurice has much to share.
Guy Mattioli
Rotary Club of West Perth
I found Maurice’s Public Speaking Presentations to be so effective because he has the rare ability to be both constructive and kind at the same time. This organically encourages all participants to get involved, regardless of levels of confidence, without them feeling like they are being criticized which leads to greater understanding and improved confidence.
Aaron Duncombe
President Rotaract Club of South Perth
Maurice presented on public speaking to our club. We found his presentation interesting, insightful and practical. His approach is to get attendees to participate and provide coaching. Having attended many such types of presentations, I found Maurice's approach different and innovative.
