The Celebrant Society - Celebrant Training Comments

"Just to say thank you for all of your input into the two day celebrant course i recently attended
I found the course extremely informative and interesting, and you put across all the structure of the course very well
I am now sure that this is the path i wish to take, so once again thank you."
Carol Jacklin

"When I booked myself onto a personalised training course with Paul I had no idea what to expect.

Becoming involved as a Celebrant was something that had interested me for a while, and the personalised 'one to one' training that I received was totally extraordinary. There was a lot to cover during the course but every part of it was very relaxed and easy to follow. It included a fun and comprehensive overview of the industry with a visit to a crematorium.

The trainer seemed determined to introduce me to the crematorium staff as well as the funeral directors who were on site at the time. This made it a lot easier for me to approach them after the course, and get my first bookings. I was able to recover the course fees within the first three bookings and when I need help with my scripts, all I had to do was email my drafts to The celebrant Society for help or advise.

I found the course to be lively, effective and extremely interactive. It was also excellent value for money.

"I cannot thank you enough. I have 17 years experience as a Funeral Director but lack the necessary experience in all aspects of public speaking. You have encouraged me and inspired me in everything that you have shown me. Your techniques have been fun and easy to follow. The presentation scripts that you have given me are excellent.

I will not hesitate to recommend you and your services to anyone wanting to train as a celebrant or needing help with public speaking and presentations.

Well done and thank you"
Funeral Director Buckinghamshire

"I found the celebrant training to be as inspiring as it was informative. it was expertly tailored to provide the practical experience, information and support in a reassuringly informal way, which i really needed as I took my first steps towards practicing as a celebrant. I was warmly welcomed and by the end of the two days I most certainly felt more confident. Paul's professionalism, warmth and genuine passion for his work is also conveyed in the manual that consolidates the practical elements of the course and addresses many of the questions we have as fledgling celebrants.

Many thanks and very best wishes."

"I approached The Celebrant Society for two reasons. Firstly, because I needed to find a reliable and professional celebrant to cover some of my funerals. Secondly, to help me overcome my fear of public speaking.

Paul was able to help me with everything. Not only did he cover two non-religious funerals that had been requested by the families for me, but he was also able to step in at the last minute and take a completely religious service too.

His techniques for helping me overcome my anxieties and inexperience with public speaking are amazing, I felt much more confident and enthusiastic about speaking in public after the course and Paul and I still meet up to discuss progress .

I would recommend anyone needing help with public speaking or scriptwriting to get on a course with The celebrant Society. It was great fun and worth every penny."
Funeral Director, Buckinghamshire

"Thank you Paul for making our day so special at The Lansdowne Club in Mayfair.
Leif’s family from America said how wonderful it was, as did my family.

Thank you once again."
Isy and Leif

"Sorry this has taken so long. Just a short testimony but can write more if you like. I think short but to the point is best. I hope all is well. I have suggested you to a retired headmaster friend I met in the garden centre the other day. I am giving out my card , I imagine it will take some time. I hope I don’t bloody forget it all . Andy is away filming at the moment. He is going skiing with The Husband so maybe I can get H to bend his ear about your project. No Jan L she is now in South Africa."
