Face to Face English Communications 500
(Den Haag) Netherlands-based executive training company Media in English has announced the recent completion of their proprietary three-day master presentation training program in English by the first group of executive staff members of Dutch investor organization VEB.

The six senior VEB execs, trained in groups of two, were introduced to the basics of powerful interpersonal communications and presentations to large and small audiences; to the most effective way to present with PowerPoint; and to the art of table-top persuasion.

Founded in Amsterdam in 1998, Media in English’s prime objective has always been to teach clear and effective communication methods to non-native and native English speakers. With tailored consulting and training programs, they have empowered executives to be effective and even dynamic public speakers. They also prepare spokespersons for all types of media encounters. Living in The Netherlands since 1990, Media in English Managing Director Rudi Goldman is a former New York and Los Angeles television producer/director with production credits in London and Hilversum.

VEB director Paul Koster attended a Media in English presentation training course during his service as a board member of the Dutch financial regulator AFM and felt that his staff could use some improvement in their personal presentation techniques. 

"It is abundantly clear that the appreciation for my presentations has increased significantly. Support for presented ideas and solutions has grown simultaneously. In short, the two-day training really has added value." 
- Paul Koster
