Bill Child Business English Trainer and Coach
Bill Child MBA

I  am a business English trainer and coach  from England. I am a certified English trainer with a CELTA certificate from Cambridge University. I have been living and teaching in Frankfurt for over 20 years and with my understanding of German (B2) I am able to support my clients in their training needs.

My training is both focussed and entertaining; I always have the clients needs and goals in mind when planning and delivering the lessons, along with making sure that there are moments of  humour along the way.

Currently I am working online with business managers, financial experts and financial students studying here in Frankfurt. I also have many clients in other areas including IT, Marketing and HR. If you would like to find out more about whether I could be the right trainer or coach to support you, then please get in touch to arrange a free online or telephone  consultation.

I believe it is also important to develop as a trainer and coach. I have completed both a Masters in Education and also a Masters in Business Administration. I also enjoy taking part on short courses and seminars to increase my knowledge and experience.

Clients I often ask questions about English training and coaching and so I have recently started a new  FAQ section. Over the next months I will be adding to this section on a regular basis. Please share any thoughts that you have at

Who will benefit from this coaching?

The business English training and coaching is designed for managers and young team leaders who benefit both from support with their business English and with the content of their daily work.

Recently I have coached clients from the following organisations;

  • BaFin
  • The Bundesbank
  • Deutsche Bank

  • Metzler Bank
  • Lazards Asset Management
  • Lufthansa management
  • DELL

How do you work ?

There are two aims with business English training and coaching.

Firstly to support their development in using the English language in their daily business to a level that they are more confident than when we started working together.

Secondly to support them in more difficult situations that happen in their working environment. This is a wide area and has included many different things. With many clients it has meant working on giving presentations in English and feeling more confident about it. I have also worked with many new team leaders who have to coordinate global teams in English and deal with issues such as team motivation, cultural differences and leading online meetings in English. Another aspect of my work has been in supporting female employees in dealing with the challenges of  progressing their careers inside large global companies. I have been successful in helping them find their new challenges inside their organisations- all in English.

All of my long term clients have come with the wish to improve their business English, how the coaching has developed after that has depended on our finding themes that are interesting and rewarding for both my clients and me.

How often do you meet and where?

Most of my clients would like to meet on a weekly basis on a fixed day and time and I arrange this where possible. However, some clients have busy weeks and so sometimes it is not possible to meet every week or to always meet on the same day. I also try to arrange this as much as possible.

At the moment my preferred meeting place is online using MS Teams, Zoom or WebEx. Meeting online allows everyone to be very flexible about when to meet. There is no need to travel to a meeting point late in the evening or when the weather is bad.

Using as my meeting tool means that I regularly send clients available meeting times for the next months that they can choose.

If you have any more questions or suggestions why not call me on 0176 29517091 for a chat. Even if I am not able to help you I may be able to recommend someone who can help you.
