Work History

One World Co. Ltd. (JAPAN)

Nov 2013 - Present

CEO, Sales Manager and Master Language Coach

In June 2013, I received an invitation to go to Japan with an investment bundle from a woman who I met at a seminar in Tokyo. This person later became the owner of the company, my wife, and the mother of my daughter.

One World Co. Ltd. runs the 99-day English training program called LifeLanguage BootCamp (LLB). LLB is a language program, which includes elements of life coaching, English teaching and team building. It effectively produces leadership in those who participate. Through the program, participants become confident and develop their fluency in speaking.

Since its inception, I have been the chief architect of our delivery, sales, and operational processes. I have integrated various online systems into manageable tools and processes that our team is now using in our business.

The highlight of our 2 years in business has been our remarkable amount of sales. This can be attributed to both my ability to deeply connect with people and the sales process that I created at our company. This sales process has allowed me to contact thousands of people via phone and email with regular and timely follow up that has led to people committing to join our program many months after I first speak with them.

CEO, Sales Manager and PhotoReading Instructor

Through acquiring a license in the US, I became the first Slovenian PhotoReading Instructor (and one of the few in the UK). PhotoReading is a method developed by Paul R. Scheele. The US now has more than 100 instructors teaching using the method.

I developed a business model, developed an effective presentation, and designed business processes while managing a team of up to 15 people.

As a PhotoReading Instructor, I spoke in front of more than 15,000 people from more than 10 countries. I ended up teaching the skill to more than 2,000 people, and I received a 90% customer satisfaction rating.

Before leaving this position, I became the world's top PhotoReading Instructor based on the number of people I taught during the 6 years I held the position.

I can lead a conversation, especially in a 1-to-1 meeting. I am comfortable with my expression in Japanese, and I don't become panicked if I do not understand.
