Franchise Services Manager, Wall Street English International
“My life has been an adventure and the last 6 years with Wall Street English is no exception. It’s been one of the toughest, yet most rewarding jobs of my life.
I joined Wall Street English having very little idea how to be a manager. I’d never led a meeting in my life, never hired or fired someone and still thought that SWOT was something you did to a whining kid. But I self-studied, and I experimented and I was mentored, and I worked my butt off. I worked so hard I nearly cracked. I would go home and stare at my turtles to soothe my mind. But I knew I was in a special job. I had a job in education and I had a position which I knew would change lives. I was changing my students’ lives and my staff’s lives and that was a powerful motivator. I had an incredible team of Personal Tutors and Receptionists and I loved them fiercely.
Together, along with the other Wall Street English staff, we created a special place where our students came, and learned, and became fluent and grew confident, both in English and in other aspects of their life. I’m a company man now – sworn in for life. Wall Street English has infected my life so much that even my wife can draw the acquisition cycle (though she has disallowed a Wall Street English tattoo). I went from being a scruffy teacher making minimum wage at a local language school in Jakarta to being the GM of a multi-million dollar operation in Vietnam – if that’s not an improvement on things, I don’t know what is.
Wall Street English is a brilliant place to work for those that want to be a catalyst for change and a force for good. Be aware though, Wall Street English only takes the best and the brightest.”
