English Conversation lessons, be prepared to talk .

Many people can struggle or feel uncomfortable when learning a new language. I teach English conversation and use exercises to highlight the basics to get through a conversation. There can be nothing worse than having t go through grammar tables after a day at work. I work on speed of delivery, pronunciation, simplicity. If you need to give a speech in business English then this can be daunting for many people, there is no need to be afraid, take the first step and contact me. The lesson usually overruns by 10 minutes.

About Me

After working at Disneyland University and entertainments in Paris for 6 years from the opening in 1992, I then arrived in a position at Nyenrode University in Breukelen the Netherlands taking care of MBA students, after 3 years managing over hundreds of students I had set up their career services department helping all students with 1-1 counseling and guidance, moving on 20 years and after several prestigious other Universities and Online Universities I worked for I was able to hone my skills throughout the 53 countries I have visited giving courses, presentations and personal guidance.
I am a very passionate giver of help and information, with a professional acting background and Psychology training I use my vast amount of experience, wisdom and natural common sense that as helped so many achieve their goals. My network spans the world and communication and cultural diversity play a key part in everything I do. Outside of work I enjoy film making, nutrition, acting and most of all teaching people develop themselves into a better person.

Experience / Qualifications

I have given career counseling advice to thousands of students throughout the world. From Soweto to Royal palaces in the middle east and beyond I have traveled in which I have guided and helped people through their journey of life. Qualifications are yes important to show that you studied and understand processes but hands-on experience and methods that work play such a key element in today's youth and ever so much more the aging population. Thus I offer you my 38 years of work experience with vast cultural experience and understanding.
Whether you are leaving school, seeking promotion or looking for a job. Career services is a subject undervalued and yet so important. I teach personal development for individuals or groups, cv writing, presentation skills, communication, networking, and marketing yourself, using social media plus much more. Have you ever had to give a speech in front of an audience and felt ever so nervous, do you need to write better letters for internships or jobs, this is where I take you through the process with all the skills required to make you feel more comfortable, positive and dynamic than previously, easier said than done you may think. Class groups contain interactive lively activities whereas 1-1 consultations are a deeper focus on your personal goals. If you need a motivational speech on video or need to know how to start a business up with minimum funds then these are all areas we can help you with. A 1-hour consultation will go over the time slightly however any extra time is all free.

Improve your negotiation skills using the Harvard method
It has been said everything is negotiable. You might have experienced this early in life, for example when you discovered your bedtime was not cast in stone. Years later you probably found out your negotiation skills had gradually become more important. Indeed, they are an essential competence for everyone who wants to achieve something. As a professional, you have to negotiate a lot, too. You are likely to find yourself mediating between clients involved in a conflict or negotiating about certain clauses in a contract. Besides that, you might have talks with your employer about salary, holidays and other (secondary) working conditions. We'll use the Harvard method to prepare you for situations like the one pictured above. Step by step, we'll pass through every stage of this famed method, which aims rather at creating a win-win situation than beating the other party. The aim of this course is twofold: 1. You are able to reproduce the theory behind negotiation skills and to apply that knowledge to specific cases as a means of preparing for the actual negotiation. 2. You are able to negotiate in an international environment, using negotiation techniques and communication skills that are suitable for that context. In other words, we'll discuss the theory and bring it into practice through cases that are specifically developed for this course.
