About Perfect Cuppa English
I’m Victoria, Founder of Perfect Cuppa English, a boutique English communication & British culture training company for international professionals.
I am a Londoner, born & bred, and am passionate about supporting individuals & teams to understand & communicate naturally & professionally in British English. This makes it easier for you to meet & connect with people of all nationalities in everyday & business situations, whether online or face to face.
Why I founded Perfect Cuppa English
Before Perfect Cuppa English, I worked for 12 years in brand marketing for American & British businesses, where I had some real insights into international English-speaking business culture. I founded Perfect Cuppa English in 2015 because I felt there was an English communication gap in business.
Despite the fact that English is a truly international language used globally, I found there are subtle nuances about how the language was used regionally, both amongst native & non-native speakers. These nuances were about culture, as well as language. As somebody who was always passionate about how to use words & communicate well, this insight drove me to set up my business.
I am proud to have recently celebrated our 5th birthday. The business has grown from just me, delivering courses to individual clients face to face in North London, to a small team of trainers delivering training globally via online, as well as face to face in clients’ workplaces or homes.
I am an expert speaker & writer on British English & Culture for international professional & community groups, including Facebook Expat Partners in London, Shell Relocation & Expatriate Support, FOCUS international community, Londres Accueil French community and Himemama Japanese community.
What makes Perfect Cuppa English unique
I realise most people working with British colleagues & teams don’t only need English language, but also want to understand British people, the culture & ways of doing things. The combination of English language & British culture learning is a unique part of all our training courses.
We want you to have a personalised, bespoke training solution. We don’t believe in boring, mass group courses or off-the-shelf identikit training which don’t give you the specific results you need to step change your language or British cultural insight.
I am committed to getting to know you as a client, developing individual, personalised courses for your or your team’s needs & matching you to one of our select English language & culture trainers, based on experience, common interest areas & personality. All our trainers are high-calibre, highly qualified & professional, and we love it when you can see your progress & gain confidence in communicating in English.
You can expect Perfect Cuppa English training to be:
- Highly Professional
- Personalised & flexible
- Positive & welcoming learning environment
- Committed & confidential
I am passionate about our client feedback & it means a lot to me that our English communication & British culture training is highly rated. You can read what our clients think here in their own words.
Why is it called Perfect Cuppa English?
Well, a cuppa is a British word for a cup of tea, a real symbol of British culture, which we drink in that certain way (with milk!). So with Perfect Cuppa English I want to support international professionals to really get how British people actually talk & behave, so they can communicate confidently & naturally in English and develop great rapport with their British contacts.
And I love a cuppa of course! So let’s chat over a virtual cuppa soon about how I can support you. Book your initial consultation now.
