Welcome to a journey that will make you a better communicator

My name is Pekka Kanerva. I first began practicing public speaking as a hobby. I then became the Finland and Baltics champion in public speaking. Today, I am a communication skills coach.

I teach communication skills to help people get their message across. I also help people whose voice someone wishes to silence.

I specialize in:

  • Public speaking and presentation skills
  • Feedback skills
  • Sales skills
  • Negotiation skills
  • Argumentation and debate skills
  • Prevention of hate speech and the mitigation of its consequences

How can I help you develop your communication skills?

I provide one-on-one and group coaching, face to face and online.

My clients include companies from small businesses to large multinationals, other organizations, as well as private individuals.

I work mostly in Finnish and English. On occasion, some of my clients practice in Swedish, Spanish or other languages.

What’s in it for you?

The need for excellent communication skills is on the rise, as these skills help people succeed in the workplace and in their personal lives.

Communication skills boost the success of the individual employee as well as the entire organization. As a result, employers increasingly invest in improving the communication skills of their workforce.

How do I differ from the other players in the field?

  1. Business background

    My clients say that my extensive business background adds value to them, as I am able to relate to the challenges of my corporate clients.

  2. International experience

    My clients also say they benefit from my international experience. I have studied and worked in several countries as well as worked for industry-leading companies such as Elisa, SAS Institute and Nokia.

  3. Award-winning public speaker

    My clients also appreciate my track record as a public speaker. I am familiar with the challenges that a public speaker faces on her or his learning journey.

What do my clients say?

“An excellent and entertaining presenter! I would’ve loved to listen to him longer. Hope there will be a part two of this webinar.”

“I got useful do’s and don’ts.”

“Expert in his topic and creates trust”

“The positive atmosphere kept me engaged from the beginning to the end.”

“Brilliant speaker!”

What is your investment?

All of my training sessions are tailored to the individual needs of the client. The required investment will therefore vary. However, here is an example:

One-on-one public speaking and presentation skills coaching in the Helsinki metropolitan area or online for 90 minutes:

  • 250 euros + VAT for corporate clients
  • 200 euros (VAT included) for private individuals

How do I help organizations to counter hate speech?

While my main focus is on helping people to get their voice heard, I also help those whose voice someone wants to suppress.

More specifically, I advise organizations whose employees have become targets of inappropriate attempts to influence them, such as online hate campaigns. Targets include journalists, researchers and public servants, and, increasingly, businesses taking a stance on, for instance, sustainability issues.

My goal is to prepare your organization in advance. So, when trouble emerges, the organization is able to swiftly provide the employee with comprehensive, multi-disciplinary support.

As a result, the organization can also ensure its compliance with occupational safety and health legislation.

I find this work important in our increasingly polarized world. I also think it is useful for public speakers to understand the hate speech phenomenon.

Let’s talk!

Does your organization need to polish its communication skills?

Does your organization need to improve the support it gives to employees who have become targets of inappropriate attempts to influence them?
