Japan’s Dentsu PR has hired communications coach Martin Newman to offer English presentation training for Japanese executives.
Aimed at reinforcing the global business communication capacity of Japanese companies, the partnership with Newman's local coaching firm Stand Consulting offers busy corporate executives either an intensive training course before a crucial business meeting or public announcement, or a basic program structured to improve overall performance.
The hiring of Martin Newman serves to enhance the English language ‘Public Speaking’ segment of Dentsu PR’s Leadership Communication Program, which has been offered since November 2012. UK-based Martin Newman, 50, has gained reputation as a public speaking coach to whom world leaders turn when they need training. Among those benefiting from his instruction have been British Prime Minister David Cameron and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon. Newman’s coaching of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s bid team is also credited with persuading the International Olympic Committee to choose Sochi to host the 2014 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
Dentsu PR’s Leadership Communication Program focuses on providing training to improve public speaking skills, especially in terms of delivery, for situations such as press conferences and interviews, which require executives to address company stakeholders, both internal and external.
