The Founding Partners

Stephen JohnstonStephen Johnston (M.A. Psychology) studied psychology at McGill University in Canada before moving to the Netherlands, where he has been delivering training courses in global business environments since the 1990s. His skills in helping others communicate with clarity and impact has been a major driver in his workshops across Europe and the Middle East.

“It might sound cliché, but I have a real passion for training, and I see the participants picking up on that time and again. I’m always excited to be in the room, motivating them to acquire skills that they can use every day. For me, there is no better feeling in the world than to help people write, present and communicate in a way that will have real impact on their working lives.”

 

 

Steve-SchwartzSteve Schwartz (B.A. Journalism) began his public speaking career when he won an award as one of New York City’s best debaters of high school age. After completing his studies at Indiana University (USA) he worked for CBS News and as a foreign correspondent for National Public Radio based in Washington, DC. Steve has been living in the Netherlands since 1982 and has combined writing and communication training for years. He is also a passionate musician.

“Everything I do—the writing, the training, the music—all have to do with communication. As I see it, every idea, thought, concept, or product is worth nothing if you can’t communicate about it properly. It is my privilege to help people communicate as clearly as possible to bring their ideas across to others.”
