Here's what people like you have to say about Davina - 

"AMAZING! I was 16 weeks pregnant and 1000km from home and Davina couldn't have been more supportive and encouraging.  Her teaching style is superb and she utilises a perfect mix or authority, technical knowledge, practical application, humour - I could go on.  She related so well to each individual on the course and everyone felt comfortable with her as our trainer.  I have no doubt that the positive energy we had as a group was a direct reflection of the positive approach Davina takes to her training. I want Davina for all my future training courses!" - Vicki S

"Davina again was perfect.  I really can't rate her high enough, so friendly, always positive and having a joke but really good and giving out clear instructions, always had great advice...... I want to teach like her!" - Lyndal W

"Oh Davina was absolutely brilliant! So clear and concise. Wonderful public speaker and trainer. She was so fantastic at explaining everything and it would be so hard to teach how to teach. She did an amazing job. She's a lovely person too and very patient. She was very helpful and gave me great constructive criticism!" - Alle J
