What People Say

Dirk Bansch is a magician in the lecture room. he gave a half
hour speech on motivation and the undergraduate students all
left the session buzzing. He was energised, informative,
interesting and funny. The students have asked if we can have him back and we sincerely hope he will find the time to fit us in.

Andy P, Senior Lecturer in Counselling Studies at York St. John University, Yorkshire

Dirk spoke with the kind of passion and enthusiasm that infects those around him.
His knowledge knowledge of the subject (and many others) was clearly evident, but it was his application to both real world situations and the psychological drivers behind behaviour that made the speech so memorable.
I came away with a number of simple and effective tools thanks to Dirk’s
skillful blending of theory and practice, which I have already started to apply and see results from.

Matt R, Senior Project Manager, Halifax

I wanted to send an e-mail to say thank you so much for the
session you provided. It was absolutely brilliant and my team are still buzzing. I can’t believe what a difference a day makes.
Our new team motto is ‘What would Dirk do?’ and this has actually helped a few in the team already when preparing for some difficult conversations.
