Andrew's Expertise

Andrew A.

Communication

19 Years of Experience
Communication skills are the biggest barrier preventing Japan from working effectively with the rest of the world - and vice versa. Companies that are able to overcome this hurdle are able to gain a significant competitive advantage in the global marketplace.

Train the Trainer

13 Years of Experience
Our industry is full of trainers who have natural ability and understand their subject matter, but have given little thought to the different ways that different people learn. Understanding learning preferences and methodologies is crucial to this process - our Train-the-trainers program offers this.

Coaching

13 Years of Experience
Coaching takes many forms, and is necessarily highly personal. Having said that, the Marshall Goldsmith method offers the clearest structure for consistent improvement, and elements of it can be incorporated into most coaching assignments.
