Back in June 1996, John Major was Prime Minister, Three Lions by Baddiel & Skinner and The Lightning Seeds was in the UK top 5 hits and The Runaway Jury by John Grisham was one of the best-selling books.
On this month in a small office in south London, Babel was started. We decided on the name Babel after the story recorded in Genesis. The story explains how the people who were constructing the famous Tower were made to speak in different languages so they could not communicate and work together. Something we aim to overcome with our own clients!
Since that time, we are proud to have delivered over 500,000 hours of language training, from Arabic to Vietnamese, coached 8,000 delegates to be more culturally aware for working in their global roles, briefed 200 expatriate families for starting new lives overseas and polished the international presentation and negotiation skills of 500 delegates. We’ve had the pleasure of delivering training in exotic locations from the top of a mountain in Switzerland to the harbour in Nassau in the Bahamas.
Our achievements would not have been possible without the enthusiasm and dedication of our highly experienced tutors and trainers around the world. With their support, we have won awards for Customer Service, Small Business of the Year and European Women of Achievement.
