Hi. I am Gabriella Ferenczi.
I’m a German & Hungarian language coach, marketing teacher, lecturer and mentor who feels it would be selfish to keep to herself all those lessons life and business have thrown at her.
I’m a foodie and red wine lover. People often call me a bridge: I love bringing people together and initiating meaningful conversations.
The best way to predict the future is to create it.Abraham Lincoln
Call me multi-passionate
I’m a teacher at heart. I taught my parents languages when I was 6 years old. I even had a whiteboard that my dad gave me as a present. I’ve been teaching German and Hungarian, my two native languages ever since I graduated in 2006.
I studied in Hungary (ELTE University Budapest ) and Germany (Philipps-Universität Marburg) where I did extensive research work for my final degree thesis. I finished my studies with an excellent MA degree as a teacher and philologist.
After teaching at a fantastic language school in Budapest, I moved to London UK in 2007 and established my language coaching business. I now specialise in working with finance executives who like my no-nonsense, practical approach.
I’m co-owner of an award-winning hair and beauty salon in Central London. That’s where I learnt all the practical aspects of marketing in the first place. From websites to newsletters and social – that’s where my digital marketing journey started.
My website and online presence is an asset that I can rely on to bring in new clients whenever needed. It took me a while to figure out how to build an ecosystem of online platforms that serve me. Now, I teach these skills so others can benefit too.
I teach marketing at Coventry University London. I work with Bsc and Msc students who study Global Business Management, Digital Marketing & Data Analytics and Global Marketing. As a language teacher, I can easily relate to the linguistic challenges international students face and can simplify the seemingly complex academic language of marketing for them.
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 and more importantly, the lessons we’d learnt along the way.
My mission as a language coach is to make the language learning journey relevant and engaging, and to help clients achieve their greatest potential to succeed in business and life using the target language at their desired level.
My goal as a marketing teacher and mentor is to teach university students about the importance of ethical, honest marketing and to help fellow language professionals to create an online presence that brings in a steady stream of clients for them so that they can do what they love and make a living out of it.
My aim as a human being is to bring people together, to constantly learn and to share my learnings. I’m endlessly curious and love a great conversation on – just about anything.
