People Say

Elders recently asked Myles to run an intensive workshop session with some of our experienced WA managers. We wanted Myles to focus on their presenting styles, helping them build on their diverse strengths and confidence within their roles. Myles ensured that he was well prepared and had an understanding of our business, the culture and challenges our staff may face. From the beginning of the session, Myles captured the participants attention and it was an enthusiastic, engaging, interactive workshop. We were pleased to receive a lot of positive feedback from our staff. They unanimously agreed that it was a worthwhile experience and they now feel more confident and equipped with the tools to take their presentations to the next level. I can highly recommend Myles in what he offers to corporate business and look forward to working with him again in the future.
Andrew Gibson Elders WA Farm Supplies Manager
Myles gave us some great techniques to use when presenting so that we can engage with our audience and process adrenalin. He drew on his personal experiences to make us feel comfortable, taught us how to prepare and deliver content comfortably and explained clearly where we could improve. The skills acquired can be used when presenting to audiences, business partners and board rooms. We would highly recommend a day with Myles if you want to present with confidence.
Coralie Lewis and Dave Moulton Cape Mentelle Vineyards, WA
Myles is professional, approachable, and flexible. Nothing was too much trouble and he understood what we were trying to achieve. Able to connect fundamental acting principles that would improve communications within our franchise setting; understanding the need to communicate at all levels of our business with confidence and clarity. The team left the day inspired, Vthey had learned easily. Highly recommended if you are after communications training that ‘sticks’.
Melissa Anderson Head Of Learning - Craveable Brands Pty Ltd
I was just a few days away from a critical interview in my career and I knew that I still needed to find a way to improve my ability to present well and appear more confident. I work in the Financial Services industry in New York and I scheduled a 90 minutes session with Myles online. I wasn’t sure how much I would be able to absorb in just one session, but Myles’ approach was methodical and walked through all of the problem areas I’d previously experienced. He outlined a framework that helped me prepare for my interview in advance and also control my performance under stress during the interview itself. The session far exceeded my expectations and quickly helped me perform at a higher level. Myles is an incredibly talented actor and an engaging communicator, but I’d add to that list that he’s also a terrific teacher. I’d highly recommend seeking out his guidance on communicating effectively and performing under stress.

Myles Pollard exceeded expectations when he delivered an Acting with Confidence workshop for our students. By creating a safe and creative learning environment, Myles paved the way for fun and confidence building but also raised the capacity for vital interpersonal skills aimed to prepare our students for lifelong success.  Myles also demonstrated adept teaching skills to manage the complexities of our unique cohort of multi-aged students. He took them from nerves and insecurities to a new level of confidence that was amazing for us to see. We highly recommend Myles for schools that are looking for more than just an injection of professional drama/acting skills or to upskill the Arts Department but we can attest that this high calibre learning experience will benefit all students to gain confidence for life.
