Our session with Jack far exceeded my expectations. I knew it would be a good session, but it ended up being sensational! For a group of talented and accomplished communicators to be sitting on the edge of their seats eager to hear more, that’s saying something. Jack’s presentation introduced a new way of communicating, one that is especially useful in challenging conversations and interactions.
"Jack was very engaging, lots of variety in the day to keep attention focused on the learning. Structure of course works so well. We learnt so much."
I just wanted to say ‘Thank you’ for being with us on Monday and doing such an amazing Improv class with the team. It fit perfectly into our agenda as we discussed personal mastery, leadership and engaging with our stakeholders, giving us a different perspective on approaching communication and problem solving in our roles. But what was more important, it really helped the team members to bond and feel connection with each other. Everyone had a lot of fun and simply loved it!
I only wish we had more time together. Thanks a lot.
Jack was great, the lighthearted manner in which he tackles the training, especially in a virtual environment really helped get the team excited and ready to present their work! Really interesting and helpful - I'd recommend that to people working from home and having to do virtual presentations.
.... delivered the EFI SARs webinar today, up to 140 people were listening at one point. I felt much better prepared and confident after just one session of your training Jack, it’s been a massive help and has made a big difference to me."
(response to "Coaching Your Presentation Stars of Tomorrow" workshop). "Training will be invaluable in helping mentor my team to cope with all manner of different presentation scenarios. Jack was brilliant"
Jack has helped me develop and structure my TEDx talk to a completely new level, as well as helping me grow in confidence. The time Jack put in allowed my speech to develop into one I was so proud to deliver. Thank you Jack for a great experience.
"A very big thank you for all your help with the America’s speakers! It was awesome to see how all 3 of them came along so much in the time they spent with you, the keynotes they delivered were superb!"
By far the best workshop I have ever attended, because the balance between learning and presenting was just right.
I can’t tell you how constructive it was. The skills learnt translate into daily life and everyday business, not just presenting.
A brilliant , eye opening workshop.

I really got a huge amount from the session.... so much so, I volunteered to speak at our People Team Conference last week in front of 250 people! My performance wasn't perfect but I am more than satisfied at my first attempt at a big audience. There is no way I could have done it without your help! Will definitely be in touch some point in the future as my team would really benefit from working with you also.
We wanted to present a new, engaging, creative angle to our company at our conference for our 300 hoteliers. Jack personified that by entertaining the audience whilst helping them understand how to better connect at the human level. A great success!
We were given Jack’s expert guidance via our EL HR Partner, and we were very lucky for the referral! We needed to provide an advanced experience for a team of tenured Trainers to push their facilitation skills and co-presentation abilities. Lately, more than ever our trainers were in need to be pushed in a new direction based on the amount of training they do. With Jack, we utilised his expertise to set up a series of modules (he already had) to build on a framework of improvisation and public speaking. Jack energised the team to such an extent they are still talking about it now!
Jack brings a refreshing and personal style to the art of public speaking. His energetic and different approach landed well with me and has made a striking difference
I am delighted with the success of our kick-off. Comedy added such a buzz to the event. Jack Milner’s approach and dedication to making it work, ensured this was a successful event. I recommend Jack and Standup & Deliver as a brilliant team to bring something completely different to a company conference.
I came to the workshop thinking my presentation skills were honed and fairly good. But I learnt a vast amount of techniques and methods that will vastly improve my skills.
I just wanted to drop you an email with the collated feedback from this morning. I am thrilled that it was such a success. Both the turnout and the feedback was fantastic, so thank you." All feedback was either "excellent" or "very good." Typical of which was: "Fantastic. More practical advice in the course than I expected.
I’ve attended three presentation courses in the past and yours is the first one I’ve liked. It made sense, didn’t try to make me into someone I’m not and was RELEVANT! Thank you Jack.
We asked Jack to deliver a series of 1hr workshops entitled Presenting You to Commerzbank’s female population across all levels of experience. The sessions were 'sold out' within a matter of hours of the invite being issued and over 80women received this public speaking training delivered with humour and expertise. Jack worked his magic on the room making sure everyone from the wall-flower to the super-ego interacted and benefited from the session. We were inundated with positive feedback and the only negative comment - the workshops weren't long enough!
First and foremost, thank you so much for Friday. It was such a brilliant day. I know the team, which can be hard to please, loved it. You were able to get so much out of each of them. It was a real joy to watch them evolve in confidence, knowledge and creativity throughout the day. What you did for them will greatly benefit them in their roles as Senior Artists. I am over the moon at the results and really pleased that we were able to secure you for this valuable learning experience. Thanks again for your time, passion and commitment on this project.
Self-improvement not just starts and stops with formal training, but first and foremost with a self-realisation of where you are and were you can be. And then practice, practice practice to change habits! This course has given my, in a very engaging way, these elements of improvement, and stands out form the typical 'executive presentations skills' by not just the content, but the interaction created by Jack. Definitely recommend it, even for seasoned professionals!
I gave Jack a tricky brief. Deliver a sales presentation workshop to 10 senior sales professionals from multiple countries and for most of whom speaking English was their second language. I wanted the team to make more impact, present with more confidence and for the day to be fun. I was concerned that stand-up comedy and improvisation wouldn't cross language and cultural barriers. Thankfully, I had no need to be concerned. Our workshop exceeded expectations, we ended the day with our morale at an all-time high and I continue to get great feedback from my team months after the event.
Jack has done an excellent job with our GP Update presenters. The improvement in all the presenters, even 3 months after the training, is startling. They are all performing superbly. We are just so pleased that not only has the training made a big difference in both the content and delivery of our presentations but that the lessons from Jack's workshops have stayed learnt!
