    “Andrew is very straightforward and sometimes also quite strict coach. I like that because his methods works. We have prepared together for sales meetings.

    First we put together what we want to say at the beginning, how to probe and how to close a deal. He has prescribed and very strict structure for all these situations.

    Then we have trained that again and again in role playing. At the end when I had a business meeting with an important client I was confident in my speech and I don't have to worry about my English all the time.”
