Speaking many languages is life’s great opportunity multiplier.
Born in the UK in 1968 I developed my fascination for foreign languages and cultures through international travel, 1000 pen-friends worldwide and horizon-broadening years at Manchester Grammar School (1979-1986). Crazy about sweet and sour dishes my life changed after picking up a Chinese take-away – the Hong Kong newspaper wrapping clung to me like a benign leech. Three years later I signed up to read Modern Chinese studies at Leeds University (1986-1990) and learnt Japanese, Cantonese, Icelandic and a bit of Korean and Mongolian for fun. Spent a year at Beijing Foreign Studies University and later worked on the Japanese Ministry of Education JET Programme (1990-1993) before relocating to Berlin (Germany) in 1993 and setting up the EURASIA Institute. Travelled extensively for almost three decades building up a huge international network in international mobility, education and business.

My life’s work has focused on creating a platform to support this process at an international level whereby intercultural literacy and communication play a vital role. The companies and products I have created over 3 decades support students, professionals, and investors in exploring new worlds and discovering their individual pathways to success.
It has been an honour to work with close to 25 thousand people from 120+ countries and a privilege to acquire knowledge from their diverse cultural backgrounds while mentoring them on their road to professional development.
Throughout my career, I have been blessed to work with amazing people who have allowed me to turn my passions into successful businesses.
