Personal value proposition

“Your PVP, your personal value proposition, is how you impact your company.
It’s how your work changes the world.” – Gapingvoid

Content writers don’t write blog posts – they create stories.

Teachers don’t teach – they create stories and experiences.

Teachers create stories around you as a main character. You get to play many parts, one of which is to rewrite and retell your story in English. With “little” help from your teacher.

So when you come the the course, you know what story to weave.

There is no place for arrogance in the teaching. The only thing is changing the world of your students.

I am delighted that five of my poems were included in the Sudden Denouement Anthology Volume I. The anthology is now available on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.

Engleza de joi/ Silt

Silt = sand, soil, mud, etc., that is carried by flowing water and that sinks to the bottom of a river, pond, etc.

“Seas move away, why not lovers? The harbours of Ephesus, the rivers of Heraclitus disappear and are replaced by estuaries of silt. The wife of Candaules becomes the wife of Gyges. Libraries burn.”
Michael Ondaatje, The English Patient

Michael Ondaatje’s words are plain wizardry about visible wars and the invisible, the ones we battle everyday with us, shadows, dust and smoke. Nobody has molded love and life in such astounding stories.

He was born on the 12th of September, 73 years ago, in Sri Lanka.

“If I had asked people what they wanted they would have said faster horses”.
Henry Ford.

If I had asked my students what they wanted they would have said an English-Romanian translation course.

Not having asked and keeping my head and thoughts firmly outside the box, I ask you to speak English.

I ask you to think creatively and transform your thoughts in a story …

Don’t worry about your mistakes.

As long as you don’t take them anywhere with you or tuck them in every chilly evening…you will be fine…

At my courses I give you the user manual for transforming your thoughts in a simple English story.

Quote

I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.’
Toni Morrison.

Grab bag (British English lucky dip) = a game in which people choose a present from a container of presents without being able to see what it is going to be.

 

I am to set you free from the horrors of making mistakes in English….Freedom is a dangerous tool, when given…

I am working hard & I am at the coalface in inspiring you to feel free in an English speaking environment.

A painter that sets me free: Julius von Klever.

Engleza de noiembrie/ Capstone

Capstone = someone’s greatest achievement or the greatest part of something.

This leadership position represents the capstone of my carrer.

 

What has been the capstone of my carrer?

My entrepreneurial insight has led me at a point where I make strategies with a view to improving people’s skills…

I design strategies to improve their communicative skills in all fields of the language: creative & accurate business communication, creative writing & speaking in a legal, financial, marketing, medical environment, creative proofreading.

This is the greatest part of my work.

 

As for the picture…I would like my efforts & creativity to be seen in colours…Which I cannot use nor paint.

Engleza de noiembrie/ Law of diminishing returns

The law of diminishing returns = the principle that after a certain point more work, investment… produces smaller and smaller improvements or results.

 

As for me, at a certain point I reduce my input of SMILES as the output diminishes.

The quantity of English rests the same.

 

For my readers, clients and friends:

I regret to inform you that my poor sense of humour never diminishes.
