What did you do before teaching?

Why did you get into teaching?

While living in Tokyo, I was invited by an English teacher friend of mine to assist in a lesson because I am a native English speaker. I loved it and never looked back.

Why did you get into teaching?

I enjoy watching as people learn and progress with their ambitions. And I also learn so much while teaching!

Tell us about your experience.

My first career experience was with Nat West Bank, then later with HSBC, in London. After 9 years in line banking,I became involved with the I.T. department. From there I was recruited by Misys, a specialist provider of I.T. solutions to banks internationally. Up until 1998, I held multiple roles, but mostly project manager and program director for banking systems projects/programs in more than 10 countries. In 1999 I set up my own consultancy business and performed various advisory/consultancy roles for banks in multiple countries. My most senior role was as the acting C.I.O. for a small Russian bank.
