Training and education:

Julie can deliver a customised in-house training service to provide your team with a competitive advantage in presenting to boards.

Boards operate under strict confidentiality and in a way that is very different to executive teams. Presenters wishing to improve their effectiveness in the boardroom need access to specialist and confidential advice from a mentor who has experience of working at that level and in that environment.

Julie's education and training programs provide a safe forum for presentation performance improvement and the enhancement of the presenters abilities. It allows presenters to access current ideas about best practice and discuss personal and organisational issues with Julie Garland McLellan, their specialist mentor.

"Julie presented at our National Conference, SOPAC® and also at one of our 'hot topic' half day workshops. From an internal perspective, the hot topic on governance was well-attended and the delegates were very happy. The sort of feedback we received from delegates included 'good insight', 'easy to listen to', 'great grasp for subject', and 'easily approachable'. Judging from the feedback, Julie is an excellent communicator and very experienced. She consistently scores above average ratings which makes us very happy with her contribution." - Christopher McRostie CEO, Institute of Internal Auditors - Australia
