|Section 1: Welcome to the Course|
Here you learn all about me, your trainer!
I've been a language and business skills trainer, based in eastern Germany, since March 2006 and love the challenges associated with not only running my own business (O'Connell Advanced Training Solutions), but also dealing with clients with a wide variety of training needs coming from a broad range of industries. It certainly keeps me on my toes, and ensures that not only is every day different, but every training program and session has its own requirements. My eye is constantly on the ball, and my clients and students really value well-prepared, well-structured lessons.
Please contact me if you have any questions, or post Discussion item!
This lecture simply outlines how students can contact me for questions, problems, ideas and more!
I'm here for you, so don't hesitate to get in touch!

Time to "see the sights and have delights", as the famous Australian song says.
But how do we find the way? This lecture excites us with famous sights, and guides us in asking the way.
I once got lost in Warsaw, and the only way I could find my hotel again was by showing a taxi driver a photo I took of the street sign outside the hotel.
