Student Testimonials

My warmest recommendation for Mr Anthony Eric* (Antonios Papadimitriou): He is a wonderful teacher. He taught me high level of advanced business knowledge, and with big enthusiasm. He listens to me and he customizes business classes for me. During the 12 sessions of his MBA class, the training opened a new door for me.  It helped me to understand the concept of: “Five Forces Frame”, “PESTEL framework”, “SWOT analysis”, “Talent Management” “Boston Matrix”; such important and professional but difficult words. Meanwhile, Anthony offered fantastic real business cases which impressed on me tremendously. Reality was combined with academic theory which gave me new perspective of analyzing, evaluating businesses from the inside and the outside, and how to look at the world.

Hi, my name is Tran Nam Anh and I’m a graphic designer from Vietnam. I met Anthony about nearly 2 years ago through a recommendation. He changed my mind and he made me a better person, much better than I could ever imagine was possible. With his enthusiasm, knowledge and his positive energy he motivated me to achieve my dreams. I see myself as an ordinary person, I just go to work everyday and I am thinking about how to become a man and to know how to do it and what to do in my life. By meeting Anthony Eric* (Antonios Papadimitriou), I came out from my safety zone, I decided to take massive actions and study more, and I now have a great job in a big company named Spring production. Besides this work, I study on the Masters’ program of applied arts and I will finish the program early next year. I can recommend Anthony Eric to any future student and employer. Contact me if you have more questions. / Tran Nam Anh, 2019, Saigon.

I got career advice and interviewing tips by Anthony Eric*. He offers a lot of valuable advice because of his long and diverse history in business. It motivated me to think in new ways that I did not consider before. I have also joined his English classes and I like them a lot. He is not only teaching plain English but he includes a lot of practical scenarios from the business world with real life exercises that give me much more than just an English class. You should definitely try his training courses.

I like 2 teachers where I study right now, and Anthony Eric* is one of them. His classes are just so different and he is a very patient and knowledgeable teacher. It is obvious he has 14 years experiences from a variety of industries and positions world-wide. I can highly recommend him.

As your old student, I want to thank you for teaching me how to become a more fluent speaker. I was very nervous when speaking in front of people. After studying public speaking with Mr Anthony Eric*. I learned how to create a speech about many topics (society, health, etc), and I learned how to reduce the anxiety and be more confident. I learned one of the most important things when giving a speech which is: “eye contact” and interaction with audience, which help people to concentrate more on my speech. Now I can do presentation in front of the class without being nervous. Thank you so much Mr Anthony Eric*.

Best regards,

When I joined Anthony Eric’s English classes I saw a very different teacher on the first day. He clearly knows what each student needs to succeed privately as well as in business. With his MBA (UK) and engineering background and with 14 years in business he gives much more than just an English class. I can highly recommend business and communication training provided by Anthony Eric.
