Working with iCommunicate - Yves Stening and Andrew Whelan - was a delight. To begin the relationship to develop an adviser workshop using Discovery Theatre, Yves and Andrew listened to what we were trying to achieve, then proposed what they thought would work for us. They continued to check-in to make sure we were comfortable that we were on track for their innovative interactive theatre workshop. We, as the client, and our advisers - the audience, were greatly impressed with the workshop they produced for us and I'm looking forward to working with them again soon.

It was a a pleasure having Yves work with us as part of the Emerging Leaders program. This group of leaders found his expertise inspirational. His role was to hone their influencing skills as they prepared to demonstrate to the executive team the ROI that the company had made on their behalf. Yves takes a fresh approach to his work coaching and challenging each individual to deliver a presentation that is innovative and has great impact. His background in theatre adds another dimension to his approach and sets him apart from others. I am happy to endorse Yves and also his integrity as a provider.
Shayne Brown - Strategic People Capability
iCommunicate have partnered with our business in the truest sense of the word ...provoking conversations amongst our executive which result in real change cascading through our organisation.
Yves knows what it takes to build great organisational cultures and we have converted many of the approaches to our business with tangible results. Instrumental in guiding our leadership team, this has extended to the design and delivery of leadership and coaching programmes that have provided us with a measureable uplift in capability. With an understanding of the ROI requirements of each project, Yves has business acument skills that convert projects to business outcomes.
Wendy Tomlins, HR Manager
Yves worked with both myself and our senior team to develop not only presentation but overall communication skills. His ability to deconstruct and then reconstruct a message so that it was clear, concise and understandable, made the session invaluable and enjoyable. The common concept that communication is easy and fun became closer to reality only after spending time with Yves and his team.
Stephen Purges - CEO
Yves Stening's teaching style is relaxed, yet challenging. The content was excellent. I now have more confidence when presenting in a range of business scenarios. I wouldn't hesitate recommending him.
Michael Callow - Regulatory Affairs Manager
As Chief Executive, RNA Queensland, I was regularly required to give public speeches, interviews with national media and presentations to corporate and government partners. In such circumstances, you don't get a second chance to get it right. To ensure I was properly prepared and that my presentations got the results I was after, I sought the advice and coaching of Yves Stening at iCommunicate. Professional, down to earth and methodical, Yves’s coaching always provided me with clarity and confidence in my ability. And the results speak for themselves. Following Yves's guidance my presentations were relaxed, confident, concise and most importantly very persuasive. I wouldn't hesitate recommending iCommunicate for any executive communication needs.
Jonathan Tunny CEO
Yves worked with myself, and subsequently myself and my senior team at Sydney Airports, on public speaking and presentation skills prior to a global roadshow. Yves’s input was very structured and relevant and covered structure, content and delivery. The team had fun, grew more confident in the material and their ability to deliver it well. I certainly intend to use Yves’s capabilities again and would highly recommend him
Simon Bligh - CFO
Yves has the interpersonal skills and commercial nous to get his message across, and to get the most out of people. I entered his presentation skills workshop with trepidation and lacking confidence, and exited with the tools and skills that have greatly enhanced my presentation credentials. I now travel the world presenting to audiences comprising government, financial institutions and retail investors, and would not be doing so, without the mentoring and tutelage Yves was able to provide.
