“Kate taught extensive business English with professional skills (Presentations and Meetings and Negotiations, etc.) to our trainee diplomats, while managing these courses at the British Council, Cairo. The feedback we received was excellent and our trainees requested more courses. I found Kate to be very pleasant, enthusiastic about her work, eager to help and forward looking. Her relation with trainees was always appreciated.”

I have no hesitation in recommending Kate. The feedback she received from our students was uniformly excellent and many of our returning clients made a point of asking for her by name, to teach them.

Kate’s communication training techniques are second to none, and the results from her class´s oral presentations showed that the students trained by Kate in presentation skills outperformed the other students on the programme in terms of improvement, from when they joined the programme.

Kate is a meticulous person in her job. She doesn’t try to sell something. She tells the truths whether you like or not. She gives you better ideas and show the right way. She warns you if you make mistake in your choises. In other words, she doesn’t pretend politically, if she knows that you will have problems due to your wrong decision. Her knowledge and experience are unique. Professionally’ I have known her for three years”

Kate was my Presentation Skills trainer at King’s College. For me, Kate was the best teacher I’ve ever had in my life. During two months pre-sessional English course at King’s I witnessed her professional and friendly endeavor to teach us how to enhance not only our oral skill, but also body language, eye contact and more importantly how to evaluate legal articles critically.
