I help people communicate successfully in their own language, in a foreign language, and across cultures.
My experience working in PR/ Communications/ Sales & Marketing as well as HR Training & Development is mainly in the manufacturing industry with extensive international contact. I have also worked for training organizations and language schools before becoming an independent contractor and founding my own business URBAN Training and Services, Inc.
“Trusted Trainer and Coach”
“As the President and CEO of Song Chuan USA and the Managing Director and CEO of Song Chuan Precision Europe GmbH, I am responsible for the Song Chuan teams in the USA and in Europe. Since Song Chuan Precision Europe GmbH is based in Germany and since I spend a lot of time there, I decided to start learning German. Renata was recommended to me and has provided me with German language training for business and daily life since July 2018. Renata is a highly educated, trained, and experienced trainer who is passionate about languages and cultures. She made me realize that language and culture are undeniably connected and has become my cultural consultant on all things related to German culture as well as other cultures in addition to being my language teacher. Renata has also provided an intercultural team building event for our annual sales meeting in 2019 and has continued supporting me as a language trainer and as an intercultural coach. Her intercultural training is remarkably diverse as it covers North and South America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, which is exactly what we need as a global company. Renata is an extremely versatile, flexible, and reliable consultant who adds value to my business and provides customized resources. I can highly recommend Renata as a teacher and a coach to any business that operates internationally, needs to build or manage diverse teams, and is looking for language, intercultural, diversity, and communication skills training.”

“Highly recommended Public Speaking and Presentations Trainer”
As the President of Ragold Concepts, the Country Manager for Naturkost USA, and the Sales & Marketing Project Manager of SternMaid America, I am often invited to events as a speaker on the Food and Supplement industry and strategies for the German and the US market. In 2019, Renata helped me prepare for an important event. She provided valuable input on content and structure for my presentation, worked with me on language and culture specific components of my speech, and refined my delivery by video taping my speech, analyzing it, and making suggestions for improvement. Her professional input has revealed important points I was not aware of, has helped me improve my presentation skills, and has allowed me to gain a totally new perspective on public speaking and presenting in front of an audience. I can highly recommend Renata as a Public Speaking and Presentation Skills trainer. The fact that she is bi-lingual German/ English and has in-depth understanding of cultural differences was immensely helpful, too.

“Great online lessons; I learned a lot”
Renata supported me to improve my English for IELTS. This was a difficult goal for me and her lessons have been very helpful for me; I learned a lot. I can notice the big difference between before the lessons and after them. Furthermore, I feel grateful for the knowledge and time she has invested in me. Even though we live in different places, I feel close to her when we have a lesson online. This has been a very positive experience for me. I highly recommend Renata as a trainer and coach, because not only is she a professional teacher but also an expert in IELTS test preparation. I feel that I can achieve a higher score band thanks to the knowledge she shares and her experience in teaching English as a second language. I feel connected with her since the first lesson, which makes me feel very comfortable and confident.
