Bianca Bock:

I think the fact that we obtain meaningful feedback from each other helps us all grow. We are all learning to bring out our strengths and concentrate on our weaknesses when it comes to presenting. This is a platform of what we will be doing in the future, so practise is the key.

Marinel Bouwer:

It was valuable to have a short time to prepare something and I still got good reviews about my presentation. When doing a presentation, I am sometimes so focused on the negatives and how bad I am at presenting, but hearing all the positive feedback has given me confidence for future presentations.

Eben Johannes:

Receiving feedback from the other students on the feedback, listening to their comments and reflecting on what they said was very valuable. Reflection is good and will help me improve future presentations.

Thandiwe Mkhetshane:

I liked the feedback part of the presentations. It is always good to know what people think about the way you present and give you advice on how you can improve. Presentations are always nerve-wrecking for me, but with the help of peer evaluation, I have learnt to work on my weaknesses in order to be a better presenter.

Mandisa Ndzule:

It is difficult to be calm when presenting in front of an audience when you are not sure of the chosen words, but learning is our everyday food. I have applied what I have been advised, and it helped when doing self-reflection. I was able to shift the spot-light from me and it gave me more time to think.

Nathan Theron:

I think that this entire day’s workshop was a huge success. I think each of us found something new about ourselves and we grew in confidence and as a team by motivating and encouraging each other.
