“I am more than pleased with the course – it lived up to all my expectations and even more. I like the balance between the practical and the focus on “brain ghosts”. What I learnt most was to dare and want to drive myself and how my actions contaminate people around me, not to build up emotional anchors and find strength in the things that are going well. A perfect investment for those who want to learn the basics in maneuvering a motor boat in order to continue wanting to practice and drive one’s own boat. Also a perfect gift to give away to friends that have a boat where he or she doesn’t dare to drive.” Ulrika
“Very good and competent teacher. Excellent!”, Shahla
“Good mental introduction and constructive practice. I learnt how to focus and prepare a maneuvre instead of worrying what others might think when they see me, and I learnt how to NOT give up after three attempts. Maria is very patient, encouraging and competent”, Malcolm
”Very good course, gives you the confidence to drive a motorboat, a confidence I totally lacked earlier, and very calm and comforting coach that really let us practice without interfering to much!”. Helena
“I gave a Gift Card on a Neptunia course to my wife Helena. One of the best things I have ever done! Helena drives, maneuvers before mooring and it is now very calm and peaceful on our Coronet” Johan
“The course was in all perfect! I learnt that to not be afraid to fail and to dare to be calm and try again. Many pieces fell into place and I felt for the first time, that I have do the knowledge! Good to introduce the course with behavioural science and powerful learning methodology! – Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced. (Soren Kirkegaard ). Maria is a confident boat driver and good at listening and sharing her knowledge. I have already told many about the course and recommend it to colleagues that own a boat, and who experience the division of roles in the same way I do.” Christina
”The course contains all you need to know to handle a boat in different situations. You are allowed time to keep trying until you master the situation. Maria is a person that brings calm and comfort. When the course was over and I came ashore I was filled with self-confidence. Maria is clear when she instructs, explains in an easy and simple way and with an approach that made me feel safe and inclusive. Maria radiates calm and competence and she gave me positive energy and a belief that this is something I can accomplish. Thank you Maria!” – Ann
”I think the course has a perfect format for me as a mother. The course was adapted to my needs especially as I had my toddler with me all day, which I felt very comfortable with. One of the goals of the course is to learn how to manoeuvre and navigate while you have your children with you. Unfortunately I think there are many mothers who only sit beside the driver of the boat through out the toddler years, simply as their focus is set to keep track of the children and therefore never get the chance to feel motivated and safe behind the wheel. After this full-day course, I feel ready and eager to take the boat out on my own, with or without passengers.”, Karin with Toddler
”A very good course! Good format with connection to behavioural patterns which makes it extra interesting. Fun mixture! Very good and practical excersises and awsome with Maria´s fantastic patience!” Gitte
”The course taught me to dare to try and no harm if it doesn’t work the first time – a knowledge that is useful both in private life, work situations and boat life”. Helen
”I am surprised how much I have learnt in only one day, and especially such things that I have believed all my life that I cannot handle, such as drive fast and moor” – Maria
”Good mixture of theory and practice which reminded me on how I should take command over my thinking patterns in order to be convinced that I can drive a boat!”, Sofia
”I though the course was great! Maria as an instructor was calm and focused and it was good to begin with theory. It feels like I learnt what I needed. A really good course for a good price!” – Anna
”Neptunia’s one-day course is an experience you will remember for a long time! It has a thorough pedagogy where navigation and boat maneuvering is intertwined with methods for personal development. The course gives you a fantastic opportunity to realise your own potential and feel freedom! Perfect and unusual gift for a birthday, bachelorettes’ party, Mother´s Day, Valentine’s Day or a course for the Company Management” – Maria
, owner and event coordinator at Karelia Entertainment.
”Easy going, fun and pedagogical course, where I learnt a lot about cooperation – something I will make good use of both in my private life, work life and boat life”. Jonas
”Today I have taken my Boat Practice certificate!! It is one of the most fun courses I have done in my entire life! I can’t stop smiling!!!! Maria, you are an incredibly professional and fantastic teacher/coach/instructor!” – Christel, Photographer Estethia.
“I learned a new way of looking at ‘new things’ and to eliminate fears, obstacles and prejudices to try new ways to maneuvre. You must not be a specialist or have previous experience in order to be good enough on very many challenges in life. I can also draw parallels to the daily and long-term efforts in pursuing and developing your own business. In a small business, there are many areas that must be developed continuously. This is done by daring to think anew in everything from staff and the organization. True and sustainable development of a business is created based on the individuals.” Katri, CountQuest Interactive
“I got the course as a birthday gift from my wife. Fantastically stimulating. Works for men too!”, Jan
”Fun combintation with personal development and boating. You get both practice and theory which is combined in a stimulating way and it is wonderful to see Stockholm from the waterside – very stimulating! Maria is also a very good, calm and sharp coach/instructor – Liisa
