Experienced International Business man with experience teaching communication skills both written and spoken for commercial and non commercial environments.

Methodology

I believe in participation, using visual aids with puzzles to help reinforce identification and use of words. I try to initially avoid unnecessary expansion of vocabulary preferring to see students use well constructed sentences using words most people know the meaning of.

Experience

I have traveled extensively, primarily on business, and have lived in The U.S.A., Canada and China. During my time in China, as a result of a health issue with a teacher of English from Canada, through a contact at The Guangzhou University of Foreign Studies I was asked if I could assist by teaching English on a temporary basis (originally 2 weeks). This became 3 years. I have worked with several U.K. companies on communication and presentation skills training.

Terence's CV

Terence

D.O.B. 06.11.1946
Nationality: British
I am a self-motivated, young at heart, experienced international businessman that has travelled extensively and enjoyed meeting and experiencing the variations in culture that the different countries have offered.
During my time in China I was persuaded to be a substitute teacher of English following a health issue with a Canadian teacher. This occurred at the Guangzhou University of Foreign Studies and what was intended to last for a few weeks ending up lasting almost three years. I enjoyed the teaching, and the feedback I received suggested the students felt I had a refreshing and motivating way of teaching English. While vocabulary is obviously important I concentrated on the simpler words and for students to learn how to construct sentences within this framework using oral participation, games, puzzles and quizzes to develop their sentence structure. Maintaining the students interest was critical to success as the amount of time they had for English Language was limited to 45 minutes per week.
My career has taken a varied path.
September 1964 to April 1969: Redler Conveyors Ltd. I undertook my apprenticeship as a Cost and Management accountant. During this time I worked in the administration sections of the Accounts Department, Sales Quotations, Time Study and Production Department and the Site Installation teams. I had a day release apprenticeship wherein I had two afternoons and 3 evening at college as well as the practical experience outline above.
May 1969 to March 1973: Kent Industrial Instruments (Flowmeter Division). This was a small rapidly expanding company within what was the George Kent group and I was appointed as the company’s first cost accountant. While the company was profitable it had limited information to identify the costs of products. I structured and introduced procedures to analyse and track cost changes, both within in the factory environment and its service operations. This enabled improved awareness for quoting on long terms supply contracts and also for service contracts with large users. The group was undergoing significant change and while in the process of moving to the Groups Head Office in Luton I was head hunted for a position in North America.
April 1973 to July 1982: Mecanaids (North America). Initially located in Los Angeles and subsequently Toronto, Canada, I established the subsidiary of Mecanaids Ltd.UK. The company supplied Patient Handling equipment to hospitals, and aids for the disabled to dealers across North America. As President of the organisation, I was responsible for all aspects of the company’s activities. The company as a whole was sold to Arjo and I left to return to the U.K.
August 1982 to April 1992: Business Development for Nicholls Hardy and Vernon Philmore Ltd.(related companies). Sales and Management training consultancy, duties involved assessing and telesales.

September 1992 to February 2000 Door Knight (Associate of Care-Knight Ltd.) Supplied and installed automatic doors for secondary door applications. Applications would include entry doors for houses, care home internal doors, toilet doors in schools, sliding patio doors, windows etc. The product lacked many features so I decided to go to China to revue production and evaluate the incorporation of new technologies e.g. keyless activation, remote programming.
June 2000 to November 2010: Self Employed China. Was unsuccessful with my reason for going to China but did establish trading contacts for various commodities (iron ore and metallurgical coke as examples),
January 2011 to June 2018: Pensworth Dairies. Export Sales Manager for U.K. dairy producer responsible for sales of products in all non Eu markets. Successful with UHT milk into China, Vietnam and Malaysia in particular.

I enjoy my family, gardening and D.I.Y. when time permits.
