Our Mission, Vision and Values
Abbey works with international leaders and companies who are looking to improve relationships and productivity in their international teams. We help them improve communication, ensuring increased empathy and understanding between individuals and companies for better business and personal relationships.
Our passion is to improve the working and daily lives of individuals in multinational and multicultural environments by delivering world-class training and coaching in language, leadership, communication and intercultural competence. Our work is guided and informed by our beliefs and commitments and we respect people, value diversity and are committed to equality.
We call our core values the 6 Cs:
We are clear and concise with our training style and delivery, which in turn helps our customers to be clear in their communication.
We are confident in our talents as communication skills trainers, and as a result our customers gain confidence-giving communication strategies.
We share knowledge and skills to cultivate competence. We invest in our people and customers to achieve the best possible results. We develop communicative competence in others.
We believe learning is a collaborative process. Our customers and team are at the heart of everything we do and how we do it.
Our learning and training aspirations extend beyond the training room. We support an international community of learners and our local community is integral to the success of our business.
We are proud of our respectful, collaborative and community-driven culture, which we believe is key to successful language learning.
“Very good. Much more than my expectation. It was personal training… All targets were met. I was very pleased to have a “British” week. The countryside is lovely. I really enjoyed the location and the people.”
