Why Choose Us?

Rather than us telling you, see what our partners and clients have to say in their testimonials:

I met Paul at a time when I was struggling to bring together an international team of researchers with diverse views and backgrounds. As someone without a formal training in management, Paul helped me to develop the tools and insights needed to make our unit more cohesive. Paul has deep knowledge of the challenges that one can face in a variety of managerial contexts and an intuitive sense of how to help struggling managers like myself overcome some of the more intractable hurdles.

Eric Zusman PHD, Research Director, Institute for Global Environmental Strategies

Platinum came recommended to us by one of our Board Members, and it turned out to be a great recommendation. Andy and Paul are great to work with, very flexible in how they customize both the content and the approach to the workshops we have done with them. We have been taking on the very ambitious project of creating a new organization-wide training program, and they have been helpful and knowledgeable partners in making that happen.

Mikkel Troen, Senior Finance Manager, Lundbeck Japan

At Bluecoat we retained Platinum Training Consultants to help us address a number of communication issues. In particular, cultural gaps between Japanese and overseas staff, in areas such as meeting protocol, negotiations and conflict management. Platinum Training Consultants solutions were tailored specifically to the needs of our teams. The hands-on nature of their sessions enabled our staff to learn, practice and quickly implement key skills, which brought clear and significant benefits to our company. We plan to continue using their services and would recommend them without hesitation.

Matt Bennet, 'Blue Coat Systems, Asia Pacific Vice President

In my previous company I needed to communicate regularly with the Global Leadership Team. Paul helped me improve many soft skills including, presentations, advanced negotiations and logical email writing. Paul also helped me understand the key cultural differences associated with global communications, which was invaluable. Thanks to Paul I am much more Globally aware and proficient in cross-cultural communications.

Paul and Andy helped me through a difficult phase in my career. I was transitioning from Japan team leader to Global divisional leader and having difficulties with cultural differences, global strategic planning and general team building across continents. Paul and Andy introduced me to various concepts and strategies. Their supportive and creative mentoring style helped me make the step up and gave me renewed confidence and motivation.
