Edward Lecomte
Founder and Managing Director

Inspired by the linguistic challenges facing non-native speakers of English in the New York area, Edward Lecomte took matters into his own hands. He started a program that focused on the needs of professionals who knew how to speak English but who wanted to speak English well.
By incorporating his experience teaching in both academic and professional settings with the individual goals of his clients, he saw great progress in their ability to communicate clearly, concisely and with confidence. His specialized accent reduction programs were so successful he then decided to open a new location in Paris, France. When he is not working with executives from Orange, lawyers from Freshfields or managers from Havas, he enjoys spending time with is family and relaxing on the banks of the Seine.
