WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE DAY
I loved the Masterclass. It was practical, empowering and very helpful. I was most impacted by the thought that we address what we predict our audience is thinking – great strategy. Also the very releasing focus on being yourself while seeking to constantly connect more effectively. Geoff Bligh (Life church Brisbane)
The day was brilliant and I would highly recommend it to any of my friends in ministry. As someone who is just starting out down the track of preaching and speaking publically, it was full of highly relevant stuff, and great that Paul didn’t focus on technique as much as he did the “art” of communicating and intentional thinking in regards to ourselves and our audience. I loved how he broke the presentation down into the 3 categories…finding yourself, finding your subject and finding your voice. I took heaps of notes on all 3 things and already on Sunday tried to translate some of it into action.
His style was great. I enjoyed that Paul didn’t come from the angle of “if you do it like me then you’ll be doing it right, and my way is the only right way.” It was more of a conversation/journey but insightful and eye-opening and collaborative. I really only have good things to say. I’ve tried to think of constructive criticism and I can’t even think of anything.
If you have anything in particular you’d like to know about then I’d be more than happy to comment, but really it was a great day. The sessions didn’t drag on…just when you got to the point of your head being full, we had a break…it was well balanced and well organised.

I really enjoyed the day with Paul and found him very helpful. It was as good as I expected and I found his wisdom and experience very helpful. It was at a higher level, not just about techniques and the mechanics of speaking but really getting to the heart of the matter and I appreciated that. I came away with a determination to put what I have learnt into practice, and several ideas on how to do so. I also found his style very easy to listen to, passionate but neither show-y nor trying to prove anything.
This day has changed my life and my thought process, I know in the future it is going to change the way I act and the way I respond to people. This Sunday I am going to the church with the vision that I have for it and I am going to share with minimal notes and speak from my heart and do my best not to get lost with what I need to say, I am going to find my voice Thank you for what you have done and I pray that all those who attended todays meeting will have the same or greater life transforming experience. Thank you for your courage and your wiliness to do the extraordinary.

Being a pastor and knowing the importance of communication, but also the challenge of doing it well, I was trilled to attend the Masterclass in Communication. In my opinion Paul Scanlon is one of the best communicators of our time. He inspires, but more than that, he makes you think and connect with life and people. I love it and it inspires me to grow. The Masterclass was an unic opportunity to hear and learn from Paul´s journey as a communicator, and it gave me practical and very helpfull tools to develop my own leadership and communication skills. I flew in from Denmark and it was worth it all. I strongly recommend The Masterclass to everyone who aspires to be a great communicator.

Thanks so much for the brilliant Workshop. I have just this minute recommended you/it to my brother in law and suggested it’s the kind of thing he could bring his Muslim boss to. I really like how you elegantly did not hide the God stuff but also made it very pertinent for corporate people. It has given me great confidence in ‘being me’ in my own work.
Thank you for initiating this life changing event . You liberated the person in me and gave a voice to my message and awakened me to platforms of putting my message across. This is a benchmark in the journey of becoming who I am.
I truly enjoyed and thrilled by the profound message that you communicate throughout the Masterclas Communication seminar that took a place yesterday. Thank you for making space & bring such dying art to the surface, especially among the Christian and remind us to be our essential self rather social self. I believe all sessions that you eloquently were chosen was excellence, and I rate them very useful.

The Masterclass was truly inspiring, challenging and useful for all areas of my life where communication is central. I feel more confident and secure in being myself when I communicate in my business, relationships, in church, on the rugby pitch and at university!
I thoroughly enjoyed the Communication Master Class. Since coming to Yorkshire in 2002 I have gone through different phases and knew that to move on I have to improve my communication skills. The class came just at the right time and i jumped at the chance to attend. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your skills in such a graphic way.
I wanted to write and thank you personally for today. I thought it was outstanding and I found it really, really helpful. Thank you so much for sharing your heart with us and for inspiring us all to be better communicators. The material you used and the keys you gave us were excellent and so helpful. Today you have inspired me to make a choice to change and to use my story to help others, because you have made me see that I do have a voice and I can get out of my boat and walk on the water. I hope you do many more of these classes as they are inspirational and I know they will be of great value to so many people. I will definitely tell people about today and encourage them to come on the next one that you do.
Just to say a huge personal thank you for the day. It was truly a lip smacking, thirst quenching, high five-ing, motivating, cool giving, rip roaring, breathtaking Masterclass. Without doubt one of the best days ever. Thanks for being brave enough to go with your heart and bring such excellence on the subject.
I was inspired by the masterclass. I felt that it helped to shape the inner me of why and how I communicate? The sessions were both impacting and thought provoking. Nothing exists anywhere in the country that provides this type of help.
Masterful, that’s the only word for it! Rather than exploring techniques and methods this class explored me! It was a superb day of focussed training and personal development that left me refreshed and re-centered as a communicator. If you are a communicator of any description, don’t think about doing this class – do it!

Paul Scanlon has tapped into something “essential” here. He pushes beyond the norms of process and technique to a place where a communicator can make that genuine connection so often elusive in much of today’s corporate media. Some great, practical insights from a master craftsman for anyone in business, sport, or public service. Highly recommended.

Wow, what a high quality communication masterclass presentation! So often, I’ve heard how to hold a microphone and how to project your voice, this wasnt that. It was a deeper and truer understanding of the make up of communication and how it was intended to be used. Ultimately communication comes from who you are and this masterclass has taught me to celebrate my background, use my experiences, my personality and deepen my confidence that I have a voice! I look forward to putting what I have learnt into practice.
My name is Meagan Kelly, and I attended Paul Scanlon’s Communication Masterclass in Edmonton, Alberta on June 16th. I wanted to take a moment to share with you some of my thoughts on the day! Thank you!
I attended the Communications Masterclass hoping to hone my skills as a communicator and journalist. However, this day turned out to be a major breakthrough in my journey to discover God’s purpose for my life. I have been told my whole life to ‘calm down’, that I have too much energy and I talk too much. For years, unknowingly, I have been putting a lid on my energy to satisfy others. To hear Paul say to me directly that I’m an ‘energizer bunny’ and there’s nothing wrong with that brought me to uncontrollable tears. For a while now, I’ve felt trapped in my ability to express myself fully. I’ve also felt trapped in my career, feeling like I can do more with my passion and skills. That day, Paul gave me the push I needed to stop trying to living a life of restriction. As he said, “It’s not what you don’t know that’s the problem, it’s what you do know.” I made a commitment to stop making excuses and live the life God intended me to live.
In the week following the masterclass, I was in the mist of a campaign for my non-profit organization raising funds for children in the Philippines: The Gift of Grace Foundation. I believe what I learned in the masterclass helped me to communicate my passion and energy to others more authentically. I finally let go and I was 100 per cent myself. I could not believe the media coverage, donations, and volunteer inquiries that started coming in. In just seven days, The Gift of Grace Foundation received $10,000 in donations. This has helped us reach our goal of sending 100 Filipino children to school for an entire year. I honestly credit Paul Scanlon’s Communications Masterclass for helping me discover how God can use me as a voice for others. A voice that is true to ME.
Thank you Paul from the bottom of my heart for helping to free me from the restrictions I set on myself, restrictions preventing me from who God created me to be.
Founder, The Gift of Grace Foundation
Paul helped me to remember that when I am being my essential self communication comes naturally and requires less effort. He also inspired me to be as prepared as I can and know more about the subject matter that I teach then what I am sharing with my listeners….not what I expected…..blown away!
Thank you for teaching the Communication Masterclass in Edmonton AB. I feel very fortunate to have been able to attend. Your message helped me at a very relevant time. I felt as though you were speaking directly to me. I have started to discover what my life message is and I intend to work hard to find my message, myself and my voice. I found your session timely and thought provoking. Thank you so much. I look forward to your next visit.
I travelled from Vancouver to Edmonton for your masterclass. My friend drove from another province to Edmonton to join me. The class was very insightful and moving for me. I would like to encourage anyone who needs to affirm their journey in life and find tools to move them into the next chapter. I found this class a confirmation of my journey, and i help others in my life to find their place . I know that parts of Pauls talk flash thru my mind as i speak to them. Hopefully you will make your way to Vancouver, Canada.
I “so” want to comment about the Masterclass I attended in Edmonton, but sometimes feel that my words wouldn’t do it justice. It helped, confirmed, challenged and encouraged me on SO many levels. I continue to talk about it – and enjoy the way God is connecting the “dots” for me using many of the thoughts that have springboarded from Paul’s teaching during that day! It’s like a seed that keeps re-re-re-germinating.
Ever since I started my own business, I have been desperate to find the key to a successful, prosperous, and fulfilled life. What is the secret, that sets real successful leaders apart from everybody else? Paul, today, during your masterclass experience, you revealed the most unthinkable and unpredictable answer known to me. You equipped me, and everyone present, with the most essential secret to life.
After today, it is my firm belief, that it is impossible, that my life will not change for the better, and most likely develop even way beyond my wildest dreams. I will encourage everyone, that has a serious intention to live life to it’s fullest, to experience your next communication masterclass, so that they can discover the secret for themselves.
My investment, including my 14 hour travel journey to Los Angeles is absolutely small, compared to my priceless discovery. Thank you, Paul, for your tremendous investment in us.
