This is my first course in FirstCom Academy (Wood Square Tower 2). My 2-day course was Effective Presentation Skills with Trainer Shawn Yeo. I super like the vibes in the class as the course-mates are all from different work fields aiming to boost our Presentation Skillset! Great spirit among the course-mates helping each other especially preparing the slides and presentation session with valuable comments and feedback! Trainer Shawn Yeo definitely is the GEM and he taught us lots of valuable tips and tricks to do a presentation, from planning, materials and etc. The training materials are fully equipped with on-the-spot extra info given. I appreciate the learning environment which is clean and tidy. Nice receptionist attended my inquires for other courses and recommend what’s good food available around the area 😃. Glad that I choose FirstCom Academy! Great job and keep it up!
