About

I’m Kirsten Smith. I Help Mining/Minerals Industry professionals transform their English communication so they can realise their dreams

This business has been built from my experience of more than 25 years as a geologist/development chemist/process engineer in the Mining and Minerals Processing industry.

I have spent a lot of my working time, either traveling to, or working in non-English speaking countries and I have helped countless people overcome their barriers (and fears) with English communication.

I left the mining industry in 2021 to focus on improving my skills to support people on this journey. In this way, I feel I can better provide the courses/coaching to reach as many people as possible.

I am also a mother to an energetic young daughter and together with my husband, we have embarked on our own journey of language and culture. We have left Malaysia (our home for the last 7 years) and are currently living in Cairo, while my husband pursues his higher education in the Arabic language.

English is rapidly becoming a required skill for people to advance in mining, and most industries if I am honest. If I can help people learn the skills they need to allow them to showcase their talent instead of avoiding communication, peoples worlds will shift. Imagine. I do.
