“Stahl&Partners coached one of our executive managers in effective presentation skills. We were so impressed with the result that we chose to continue to work with Helena and her team ever since. So far, S&P have trained over 300 people at NASDAQ in New York, Washington DC, London, Vilnius, Stockholm, and other places in Europe to enhance Vice Presidents, managers, and staff’s communication skills.”
Sandvik Materials Technology is a subsidiary of Sandvik Group and a world-leading developer and manufacturer of advanced stainless steels, special alloys, and products for industrial heating. All sales representatives were extremely well trained and qualified to sell steel and yet they needed to increase the sales results in a very competitive market.
“We needed to improve how to build long-lasting relationships with our clients that rendered into better business. S&P trained our very competent sales representatives from Europe and the Middle East and the goal was a substantial ROI. Our key people became more assertive, more effective, and more courageous and we achieved an impressive ROI in increased sales. What impressed me the most was how quickly they understood our business and the different cultures, and their passionate commitment to our success.”
Roche is the world's largest biotech company and one of the fastest growing companies in diagnostics and pharmaceuticals. During five years, Roche Sweden and S&P together developed a tailored leadership program in which all managers participated, starting with the top executive team ready to take on a tough future scenario.
“S&P's leadership program is the best I have experienced in my 25 years of living all over the world! Helena Stahl and her team exhibit an extraordinary passion for what they do. To my knowledge, this is the only leadership program in the world where the application of new knowledge is the main focus and therefore we also reached all our set goals of decreasing staff yet increasing trust and sales.”
Quality Hotel™ is one of the largest hotel chains in Nordic Choice hotels, with over 60 conference and family hotels spread across Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. The company is rapidly growing, and a major focus is how to attract, develop and retain young staff with innovative solutions.
“We needed to find innovative ways to tap into younger staff’s motivation and talents. Together with S&P we did things we had never done before, focusing on areas we never focused on before, working in ways that we had never tested before. The result? Our staff developed a new mobile app and a digital introduction game for hotel staff. S&P has now also developed a “train the trainer” process for all our hotels.”
Beachcomber Resorts is a steadily growing exclusive chain of 5-star luxury resorts in Mauritius. To stay ahead of the competitors and still be cost effective, S&P developed a customized Training Academy and licensed 20 key employees to become internal trainers in leadership and customer service, and then transferred the two tailored programs to all 700 employees and 100 managers.
“All our ROI goals were reached! As a result, our customer satisfaction increased by 5% during this time, and we had more than 70% application rate of the tools taught to our staff and managers. The graduation rate was 90% and all training sessions were completed to 100%. Within one year, 50% of the internal trainers had been promoted and Beachcomber Resorts now has two complete training courses we can teach ourselves.”

”Stahl & Partners and Helena Ståhl entered the lives of the Lottotech team members as well as my life in Mauritius when we needed to stop and reflect on our purpose and who we are, as individuals and collectively. The impact of the first general session with the team, which focused on ”Daring to be the best you can be", was extremely well received by all, so much so that we have asked Helena to return numerous times and we are very grateful that she did.”
