Why I created Oxford Business English


I know how hard it is to learn a new skill whilst working long hours and having a busy family life. Over the past 30 years, I’ve been a husband, father-of-four, semi professional sportsman and an international business executive working over 60 hours per week, not to mention being a non-executive board member of several companies in my spare time. 



During that same time I’ve learned two foreign languages to intermediate level, completed two part-time masters degrees at the University of Oxford and the University of London, as well as qualifying as a Teacher of English as a Foreign Language (TEFL), where I’ve taught hundreds of business executives to improve their English for Business before I founded Oxford Business English. I’ve even managed to complete seven marathons and two triathlons as well. 

How did I do this? By developing a system to learn for busy people, if you don’t learn systematically then the business of your life will ensure that you fail. You have too much to do and don’t have time to waste.



Come on a journey with me and I won’t let that happen to you! 

Drop me a message and I’ll tell me which skill you need to improve the most and I’ll send you a free lesson to try. Even more than that, if you message me to tell me how you found the lesson I’ll send you a discount voucher for my next course, Digital Business English.

Good luck, buena suerte, boa sorte, viel glück, bonne chance, удача, がんばろう and 好运.
