Marie Ställvik, CEO DF Kompetens

When I got in touch with Mike Ward, I felt out of practice with my conversational English, avoiding situations where I needed to speak English. Mike got me to understand that the biggest obstacle was in fact my own mindset. Now, I have stopped worrying about making mistakes and feel almost casual during a discussion. I can willingly recommend the pedagogical method with which Mike has succeeded.


Pär Johansson, Senior Consultant, Con3bute

The main difference between my previous training in English and the coaching provided by Mike is that he adapts the training to my specific needs, as opposed to just following a plan. In the long-term, I’m enhancing my ability to communicate in English. In the short-term, I’m receiving support with my daily business activities.

The skills and results I need to achieve are always the focus of the training. Mike works more as a mentor than a coach in that he gives advice and applies knowledge gained from his personal experience.

Henrik Ask, Vice CEO and Claims Manager, Löf

I previously worked for a Nordic insurance company where a good understanding of the English language was essential for me in my work. The company uses English as the corporate language and there was a need for me to express myself efficiently and accurately during work meetings.

I built up my vocabulary and ability to conduct rather fluent conversations in both business and personal environments. I can strongly recommend Mike Ward English Coach if you’re looking to quickly improve your knowledge of English.

Helene Bergqvist, Head of Motor Claims Centre Nordic, If Skadeförsäkring AB

In 2003, English had just become the corporate language at the company. To begin with, I felt very uncomfortable, owing to my lack of skills regarding English. Promoting diverse issues is part of my work and this involves taking an active role in meetings. Mike and I have been working together with everything from presentation material to practising oral formulations. With Mike’s close involvement and clear understanding of my assignments, he has been able to help me maintain a high level in my English, from the outset.

I can say I have now regained both my personality and my effectiveness while using English. Mike hasn’t just functioned as a regular teacher, but as a combination of coach, mentor, adviser and expert on the English language.

It is a terrific advantage to be able to practice English in both its spoken and written forms. The experience has opened doors to opportunities for more important future assignments. It has actually enhanced my employability.
