Comments from past participants :
I have known Benedict Morais or Ben as he is fondly known for more than thirty years now. His illustrious career spanning government service to the corporate world makes him the best person to share his experiences, skills and wisdom when conducting training programmes. He is particularly good in conducting Business Writing Skills programme as well as Effective Public Relations and Public Speaking programmes.
I have no hesitation in recommending those who want to equip themselves with the skills and competencies to compete in this brutal and unforgiving world to attend one of his programmes. For one to ensure sustainability and possess the new transient advantage, in an era where facebook, twitter, youtube and linkedIn rules, business writing skills puts you ahead of the curve. – Khaeruddin Sudharmin, Adjunct Professor, Adviser and Board Member, MRC Malaysia in partnership with THATCHAM UK

“I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation on Effective Public Speaking held on 7 and 8 November 2013 at Concorde Hotel, KL. Your delivery was so engaging that I lost all track of time. By any measure, you are a very effective speaker and educator. You build a strong confidence in the participants and make them feel good about themselves.
