ABOUT US

At Business English Training and Translation, we firmly believe in giving you the qualified and experienced English trainers you need. But this doesn’t just begin and end with the necessary and expected qualifications and expertise in teaching.

As trainers who came later into this profession, we noticed that it was our rich and varied tapestry of experiences that made your training sessions different. We’re not just Business English Trainers – we’re qualified trainers who believe in your continuing professional development and have worked previously in other industries where we gained invaluable experience in management and administration, in teamwork, in presenting ideas and concepts clearly, and in getting our messages across effectively. We can thus better understand the challenges you face day-to-day and are better able to help you with the English you need to navigate them.

Laura Bisby

Company Director

After gaining her degree in Modern Languages in Durham University, Laura successfully dived into the world of Corporate Finance and gained further degrees in Economics as part of HSBC’s commercial graduate training programme. The world of finance had to take a back seat though when her passion for languages eventually found her completing her Masters in Interpreting and Translation in French and German.

In her spare time, she is a keen swimmer and runner.

She’s our hands-on Company Director and has been a corporate business trainer since 2009.

Vincent Wongaiham-Petersen

Director of Studies

After graduating with honours from the Bachelor in Communications programme of one of the most prestigious universities in the Philippines (Ateneo de Manila) and moving on to an international management trainee program at Lufthansa, Vincent went on to do his Masters in Economics in the University of Hamburg. He is fluent in three languages and can also get by in Mandarin, Spanish and Fujian. This is probably to be expected considering he is a product of four different cultures and is also our resident intercultural expert. He also gives university lectures.

He loves his killer sudoku, is an avid film fan and needs a good dose of coffee every day.

Our Director of Studies has also been in the world of corporate business training since 2009.
