    I found this webinar incredibly helpful. Jon’s experience was clear with the type of insight he gave on selftaping. This webinar has taught me a lot about how to improve the standard of my self tapes and has improved my confidence when approaching my self tapes. I really hope Jon will do more webinars/workshops like this one in future and afford us the wealth of his industry knowledge.

    Great tips, really complete and generous! Having tech glitches ironed out ahead of time would have been even superer. 🙂 Thanks for organising this!


    A very lively and interesting speaker explaining many practical things in a good humoured way with excellent interaction with his audience, quick reactions to the Chat box. A simple and friendly approach giving plenty of tips making the audience feel anyone can do it, making us feel that everyone has some sort of possibilities within their dreams, and within budget too, that s what we need these days, thank you
