Born in Montreal, Canada, Catherine grew up bilingual, speaking English and French. Her degrees in philosophy and literature pushed her to study German in Berlin, where she settled with great enthusiasm in 2006.
That was when she garnered her experience teaching Business English in a variety of environments to everyone from C-level executives to support staff. An entrepreneur as well as a communication coach, Catherine founded Be:Spoken in 2013 as a platform to provide language services tailored to the client’s specific needs.
With her dedication to developing the international identity, Catherine is a certified ORSCTM coach. Her goal is not only to make her clients interculturally competent, she helps them become global citizens.
The daughter of a Hungarian refugee who participated in the 1956 revolution, Catherine was always inspired by her father’s transformation into a successful businessman able to build a career for himself in a new country and language. This model and drive are what she brings to her European clients and she is equally thrilled by their success stories on the global market.
