My name is Kasia, and I am the founder and director of Speak Culture.
Speak Culture is the result of more than a decade of teaching language and culture courses to executives, and being a member of intercultural teams. More importantly, though, Speak Culture is the result of my first-hand experience at seeing interpersonal and business relationships flourish through greater cultural appreciation. Living in the UK today, I believe that there is no greater need for such awareness than now.
Besides holding a Certificate as a Business Cultural Trainer, I am a lecturer for ASBIRO (Alternative School of Business and Personal Development), where I work with Polish entrepreneurs and job-seekers to develop the soft skills needed for the British business setting. I am also responsible for modules on intercultural competence at Cambridge University. For the last three years, I have also taught transition courses aimed at preparing British medical students on their way to work in Germany.
Much of my ability to understand cultural struggles comes from having lived in Poland, Germany, and the UK. I hold a Master’s degree in German as a Foreign Language as well as qualifications in French and Polish. In the meantime, I continue to learn other languages.
