I have been working with Helena in Russia / Ulyanovsk, to support with Culture training for new hired Russian Employees and Managers, to prepare them for training in Europe / Spain and Russia for Vestas.
Helena has also trained Spanish Employees / Managers to prepare them for Russian culture, and have been coaching the Factory Manager, to be prepared for the culture challenges in Russia, during hiring, organization set-up and building up the Management group.
During the Culture Training projects, Helena have shown a great performance, to organize, plan and follow up on the training scope, and have been given a high valued feedback after the courses.
Helena has a high-performance level, Flexible, and a very Serious Attitude to ensure the Quality and detailed training, at all time. Helena has very good training skills, and her personal attitude and cooperation with me and the Managers is on high level, and very positive.

I have used Helena as a coach to solve some specific managerial cultural challenges in connection with my new tasks in Russa. It has been very interesting and constructive and we addressed issues in a manner, which I would not have thought of on my own. It was a great pleasure that everything we discussed was logical and useful on a very practical level. I hereby give Helena my very best recommendations!

Helena is always doing her best to tailor the training to match the expectations and experiences of the family or group she is working with and the feedbacks from the training are very good. She is a keeper!

Helena did a good job that helped me to relate and reflect to differences in a new environment. The course was personalized and focused on my wishes, needs and areas of development. The course offers tools, mind-sets and reflections, which will be useful for the whole family. Helena is experienced and creates trust because of her own experiences from relocations to ”difficult countries” and her own major life changes.The coaching was easily accessible and I liked the fact the main commitment required was needed in the periods between the sessions.This was not ”just another course”, I´m still using with some of the tools given by Helena.

I had the pleasure of being coached by Helena in the fall of 2017. It was a very good process, Helena is very open and authentic, which invites an honest and even dialogue. This is exactly what is needed in a good coaching course, and I can give her my warmest recommendations.

Helena is a fun and living speaker who makes the gray, dull and cold Russia colorful, interesting and nuanced.

Helena Drewes is a fantastic speaker who, if any, can reveal what is happening in today’s Russia. Through her many years of work in Russia, she has gained a wealth of experience about the culture, the mindset, the traditions and how modern Russians think – about themselves and the globalized world. In addition to being an active part of the Russian business community, she has written books about organic foods, Helena Drewes talks with humor, knowledge and commitment about Russia, and she is inspiring, fun, knowledgeable and entertaining at one time. I can warmly recommend her to any lecture about Russia.
