Client Testimonials

"During his six years working for St Helens Council Education Department, Paul was, among other things, our in-house "languages expert", doing the translating, interpreting and liaison with our twin towns in Chalon-Sur-Saône, France, Stuttgart, Germany and El Prat de Llobregat, Spain. His participation has enabled us to maintain strong links with all three towns, particularly in the field of education, where he set up and managed a very successful work experience programme for sixth formers"
Brian Mainwaring, Director of Education, St Helens Council, August 1995

Thought for the Day ...

"Some religions have a pay-as-you-go forgiveness system based on the premise that you sin, you confess, then you’re forgiven. Others have a contract where you’re forgiven in advance, so how much you sin is up to you. Retro-style religions have a hellfire and damnation system where you sin and burn in hell for ever. Understandably, this tariff gets fewer subscribers." Guy Browning, The Guardian, 8 October 2005
