Gareth Godley gives insights into his experience of learning a language as an adult to facilitate communications with colleagues in both France and England. He will also highlight the main difficulties a company faces in dealing with its language needs and outline some of its successful strategies for recruitment and training.
Prior to the presentation, attendees are welcome to join the committee for lunch (at their own expense) at the Wig & Mitre.
After completing a month's secondment in the south of France, Gareth joined Agrial in 2014 as a Site Manager at Axgro Foods (a fresh produce business) and his role frequently involves European travel. He is keen to further his international experience with the firm and believes improving his French language skills will facilitate this goal.
An avid snowboarder and mountain biking enthusiast, Gareth regularly enjoys trips to the French Alps, where he has the opportunity to put his budding language skills to the test outside a business environment.
