Working as an Executive Assistant to Senior Vice President, who was a Singaporean, I desperately needed to improve my English-speaking ability in a short period. I felt pressured and depressed with work and personal life. I did not know what to do. I live in China, and there are no English – speaking people around me.
I was introduced to David by my work colleague, and I got in touch with him. He began to coach me via We Chat on video. Speaking with him in English, my language began to improve. His methods of mentoring and coaching inspired me. David was very encouraging and made things so easy. This boosted my confidence. I felt I was beginning to make progress fast and felt good about myself. I felt a sense of achievement in work and the self-confidence.
I passed my English course BEC with high marks which thrilled me. My confidence increased and began to balance work and personal life effectively. I took on hobbies like a watercolour painting. I started painting beautiful pictures, learning to cook a new dish every month.
What I liked most about David is that he is a very positive person. He dedicated his hours both mentoring and coaching me regardless of the seven-hour time difference between China and the UK.
David is a gentleman who is willing to listen to your ideas and share his experience with you. I would happily recommend him to my friends in my organization. I have learnt a lot since I got to know him. I feel I am progressing well both in personal and work life. David, thank you that you came to visit me in China. I appreciated that.
