I became an English Language and Business Skills Coach in 2005 after a long and successful career in the Financial Sector, where I spent most of my time presenting to, and negotiating with CEO'S, company owners and company directors. Having learned my business skills the hard way, it seems fitting to offer this knowledge to people who are just getting started and looking to improve their employment and career posibilities.
