I participated in the EISC coaching programme (and other programmes from Paul) at the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research. The scientific & technical background of Paul as well as his extensive experiences in Asia, the Americas and Europe greatly enhances his inter-competency / inter-cultural knowledge and he was able to enhance my presentation and negotiation skills to another level. An important element of his successful programmes is also his enthusiastic, focused and entertaining style of coaching. The days are long and challenging but always full of value and fun. I can recommend Paul’s coaching courses for anybody who wants to improve their skills from their existing level to excellent!

Wir arbeiten regelmäßig mit Dr. Charlton zusammen und haben sehr gute Erfahrungen mit seinen Workshops gemacht. Seine professionell vorbereiteten und durchgeführten Schulungen in den Bereichen Präsentations-Vorbereitung und Umsetzung (mit Video-Kontrolle) sowie Business English sind sehr effektiv und auch unterhaltsam. Ich selbst konnte bereits vieles in meinem Alltag umsetzen. Insgesamt kann ich die Coachings nur wärmstens empfehlen.

The 3-week technology transfer course under the guidance of Dr. Paul Charlton was an excellent balance of theory, case studies, and interactive exercises. In this short amount of time, I acquired skills in business planning, negotiation tactics, cultural competence, and behavior management; skills that I otherwise would not obtain in a purely scientific / academic setting.

I consider Dr. Paul Charlton a mentor and I appreciate deeply his consistent active involvement in the ASAG Biotech Network as it ensures the continuous education of the Biotech programme alumni.
