"Business training with Martin Hooper is Champions League! Since 2007, he has supported me at irregular intervals in English presentations, workshops and in the constant development of my English skills. The 1:1 coaching sessions are highly individualized and tailored exactly to my needs and learning pace. Martin lives the basic attitude "Making mistakes is allowed!" and motivates me to learn and implement what is new. The training is a perfect mix of theory and practice, conversation and practical exercises, and humor and seriousness. His coaching is always respectful, appreciative, uplifting and highly professional - this is exactly how "outstanding" business English training should be!"
