I was born and educated in Hungary. I graduated in 2008 in the International Business School of Budapest (IBS) and received my Oxford Brookes Bachelor Degree in Business Studies. In 2010 I received my Master Diploma in Marketing Management at the same university. I have enjoyed the 6 years spent at IBS with its practice-oriented programs in small classes, focusing on skills development, delivered in English with international student from over 70 countries of the world. My mother tongue is Hungarian, I speak fluent English, German and Italian as well as Portuguese.
I am passionate about the transformational power of continual learning for young people, teachers and leaders alike. I work with a wide range of schools to promote coaching, continual professional learning and, most importantly, high performance pedagogy. I believe fervently that high performance learning – based on our increasing understanding of the way the brain changes with thinking and our growing knowledge of how the highest performers think and behave – can deliver crucial, theoretical knowledge, mastery, opportunity, choice, dignity and purpose for all learners, young and old!
My name is Robert Sternthal, and luckily I had the opportunity to attend very prestigious educational institutions both in Budapest, Hungary where I was born and also in California where I attended high school, undergrad school and received a diploma from a top tier business school.
Throughout the years I have lived in several countries and got to know a wide spectrum of cultures, traditions and many different kind of people. The work background I have is in finance and banking but spent the last ten years working for the biggest and best commodity trading houses in Europe as a trader making them more profitable as well as helping them grow.
