Piguet Galland started collaborating with Stand'Impro in March 2017, as we trained some of our communication managers. The training was extremely well received by our collaborators, both in terms of added value and the speaker’s approach: the creation of a bond of trust, dynamics, practical aspects, etc. Everything was brought together so that the training becomes a real moment of professional development. Thus, it is with pleasure that we recommend the training offered by Stand’Impro.
Our group, GFMS, has been working with Stand’Impro since 2013 as part of training. Stand'Impro works with our distribution teams, salespeople, and marketing department. I have personally seen the work that has been done over a relatively short time: a human level, a quality level with its founding president, Andreas Ventouras. My teams have considerably improved their way of presenting. Beyond that, what was fabulous was my team’s level of confidence to present to the sales teams. They were boosted like I had never seen them until now!
Our company, Transports Publics Genevois (TPG), has decided to train the members of its management team in public speaking through Stand’Impro. We particularly appreciated the trainer’s adaptability, who was able to take into account the different levels and needs, as well as the personalities of each participant in the training. Stand’Impro’s approach also showed very positive and measurable effects in a relatively short time on the participants who took the communication training. Therefore, we have decided to pursue this training in a sustainable way to speak in public and introduce it to other employees over the next few years.
For more than a year, I followed individual coaching with Stand'Impro. The process was carried out as part of my professional development plan. Certain aspects were identified by my manager during the annual interviews, and we decided to work on these points using a professional structure dedicated to training and coaching. After a year, my manager noticed some points of improvement concerning me, although he found them very challenging at the start. My entourage has also perceived an evolution on several points. Based on the strength of this positive experience, we decided to perpetuate this practice within my team for other employees.
Stand'Impro offers tailor-made communication training, focusing in particular on practice, which allows you, in just a few hours, to understand and apply a presentation that will have an impact in the professional context. I personally took the Public Speaking training in 2013 as part of my former job at economiesuisse, the umbrella association for companies in Switzerland. It is an essential training course for the development of your professional career.
We have been nominated by the Geneva Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Services (CCIG) as one of the most innovative companies in 2013. To present ourselves and our technological innovations, we called on Stand 'Impro. During the presentation, the jury unanimously awarded us the innovation prize! It was the first time in the history of the CCIG that a jury unanimously awarded a prize to a company. We highly recommend Stand'Impro.
Training in public speaking, as offered by Stand'Impro, allowed me to develop communication tools and charisma in just a few hours. I took this training in 2013 as part of my job at economiesuisse. This training will be useful to me throughout my career, and I highly recommend the effective and original approach that Stand'Impro offers.
I had the opportunity to follow individual coaching with Stand'Impro in 2014. The idea was to work on asserting myself, as I was rather introverted and uncomfortable with taking up space. We had the opportunity to work on different communication exercises. Note that these exercises were filmed, which is very interesting to be able to truly realize how we behave and communicate something with others. Ways of development could be identified, and concrete tips were given to me to communicate more effectively, and therefore, give the feeling to my interlocutor that I was being more assertive. I would like to thank Stand'Impro for its support and advice, and I highly recommend it to anyone wishing to find ways to communicate better.
The City of Geneva's training center has been collaborating with Stand'Impro since 2015. While public speaking training was our first experience, we subsequently particularly appreciated Stand'Impro's ability to respond to our changing needs and develop its training systems. It is thanks to this listening to the client and the trainer’s experience that we managed to develop a module on interpersonal skills that combines public speaking, behavioral psychology, and the philosophy of theatrical improvisation. In the context of digitalization and the growing hybridization of training systems, this face-to-face course meets great success with our audiences, who live a real training experience for two days. In addition to the humor, the benevolence, and the quality of the exchanges with the speaker, the participants note, in their evaluations, the positive effects of the training on strengthening and self-confidence.
