I love languages. I studied three at school - French, German and Latin - and completed a short course of evening classes in Spanish a few years back. Languages appeal to me because I regard lessons as more than just learning to express myself but also as a way of understanding other nationalities - particularly the Germans. And, of course, if you understand how people click, you can make a connection with them - and, if you are in business, the marketing and selling process to a foreign audience becomes so much easier.

So, I've created a blog. Why? Are the things I'm going to say so earth shattering that everyone will want to read it? Definitely not - but I hope that my experience and thoughts will be of interest to some. I'll be blogging about
- my experience with doing business with the Germans,
- the peculiarities of British business (and why the Germans get annoyed with us),
- my take on events, trends and discussions I see online and elsewhere,
