Our Programs

We will help you become a better communicator!

We will help you become more successful in (international) business.

We will create a personal communication ‘toolbox’ especially for you.

We will share our knowledge and experience with you.

We will travel the world to come to you.

Before anything…..

We like to think of you as a skilled individual or group, who may need extra tools and special skills to get the’ job’ done. To find out what you might need, we need to get to know you first. Therefor we will create your personal profile through a questionnaire for you to fill out and return to us.

For ‘one on one’ coaching, we also need to have a (free) intake session with you.

After having analyzed the questionnaires, programs and courses will be carefully designed and optimized to meet your wishes and needs.

We’ll teach the basic skills first. You will learn how to listen, analyze your own and counterpart’s communication and how to use and identify body language. Once that foundation is in place we can start building you up.

Many politicians, diplomats, captains of industry, team leaders and directors, engineers, doctors, TV-personalities as well as police officers, teachers, lawyers, mayors and ministers have benefited from them.
