So, hello everyone. Since today’s guest teaches English to businesspeople and international leaders, I thought it would be beneficial to give an example of accurate words used in a way that English speakers would never use them. And so, this is a blooper, of course, a sign on the top of a Beijing hospital. Underneath the Chinese characters is the Hospital for Anus and Intestinal Disease, not exactly how English speakers would use the language.

Today’s guest is Victoria Rennoldson from London. Victoria supports international leaders and managers to become confident in their communication and cultural intelligence to impact their results, performance, and career growth. She is the co-founder and CEO of Perfect Cuppa English in London, with private clients primarily in the UK, Europe, and Asia. She is also an expert speaker and writer on communication and culture, and she shares how to build communication and cultural confidence in key business situations to increase the share of voice and visibility in a way that connects and builds relationships.

So welcome, Victoria. I’m delighted that you’re with us.

Thank you very much, Philip, and it’s nice to join you from London, UK.
