How we work

  • Over the 2 days there is a commitment to lots and lots of practice.
  • When thinking about presentation style the focus will not be on “one right way of doing things” but each participant will be encouraged to search for new ways to enable him or herself to communicate better.
  • The focus of the training is the audience. We will be using case studies and simulating challenges which exist in real life.
  • One objective of the training will also be to support learning's and other trainings
  • Language in the training room – participants will be encouraged to work in whichever language they prefer, English or Finnish. Andy & Steve are fluent in both.


The fee for the training includes:
  • Two training days and your
  • Lunch and coffee on training days
  • Free Helpline
After training you are eligible to use Andy & Steve's free Helpline Service. For example you might invite us to sit through your important 30 minute Presentation or plan for a key Customer meeting and all for the price of a cup of coffee – for us it's a great investment in Partnership.
