John Carson was the cool English teacher with round, John Lennon glasses, and a dry and thoughtful wit. I was a trainee teacher and we were talking about students’ essays. “It’s fascinating to encourage kids to write about how they constantly need to be wired up, rather than deal with silence, or even worse, be […]

Mica is quick to understand my requirements and always delivers excellent text that fits my needs exactly. She is easy to work with and produces the product in advance of deadlines.

Valdimar Aðalsteinsson, Íslandsbanki

I’ve now attended a few Bloom Communication courses and have gained a better understanding of business writing, how to write a speech and I’m now much more confident and better able to deliver presentations. I’ve also got a better understanding of people’s behavior. My communication skills are much stronger and I’ve really loved the courses.

Zita Major, Össur

I’m a designer who attended the Tech course and found it really well structured and inspirational. Mica has a very extensive knowledge of writing, language and grammar, and thanks to her natural curiosity she knows a lot more than that. She really tries to understand what you need so she can give you the best “tailor-made” knowledge. I recommend her courses for everyone who’s interested in writing or developing language skills, she’s one of the most talented teachers I’ve ever met.

Randy Fleckenstein, Rotary Club Reykjavik-International

Mica gave a talk to my Rotary club on the power of stories in public speaking and inspired a group of 15 from several different countries to actively use their imaginations to experience the story as a way to deliver a message. It was obvious that the entire group very much enjoyed her lively banter, professional organisation, use of props and uncanny ability to remove barriers and have everyone take part.

Muriel Léglise, Medis

I took the public speaking course Voice and Mica is one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. Professional, resourceful and encouraging, if you’re intimidated to speak in public, she’s the one to bring the solutions and give you all the tools for successful and effective presentations!
