The Language Coach
“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head.
If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.”
– Nelson Mandela
I’m absolutely passionate about teaching German and Hungarian, two languages that I’ve been lucky enough to have grown up with. My mission is to make the language coaching process relevant, highly effective and engaging, and to help busy corporate leaders achieve their greatest potential to succeed in business and life using the target language at their desired level.
My new London-based venture ProLingua Global offers a unique 5-step language coaching programme, specifically developed to meet the needs of executives in the financial services industry.
I host and organise Language Professionals’ Networking Event, an independent monthly gathering for linguists and language enthusiasts. It’s a place where fellow language teachers, trainers, tutors, coaches, translators, interpreters, intercultural skill experts, voice coaches, language and speech therapists, actors, language consultants, researchers etc. meet every once in a while to discuss all things languages and career in a supportive, informal environment.
“A day will come when the story inside you will want to breath on its own.
That’s when you’ll start writing.”
– Sarah Noffke
I’m the co-author of the Amazon Travel & Tourism bestseller My Camino Walk #1, featuring the stories of 20 pilgrims worldwide from a diverse range of ages and professional backgrounds who have all walked the Camino de Santiago in Northern Spain. We share our journey, our insights, our trials and experiences but importantly our inspiration. If you are thinking of walking the Camino, this book is a great place to start your journey.
I’m also working on an upcoming book called Step up and take responsibility. Not a very compelling title to many of us, but a life changing one if taken seriously.
I do what I love and I love what I do. Genuinely. Honestly. I find it difficult to describe what work is. Because I work all the time and it doesn’t feel like it. I don’t want to retire in the sense of “finishing work for good” because work is just too much fun. You may say that I’ll change my mind in 30 years time. I challenge you I won’t.
I’m a passionate advocate of doing business to serve a genuine need of people and create your own success by contribution, giving back, and making a real difference to the world.
Act. Communicate. Create.
