Vasiliki Prestidge speaks at Channing School's Global Futures Event
On 22nd February 2021 Vasiliki spoke alongside Kerstin Cable, Lucy Richardson, Sacha Koopman and Dr Lindsay Bywood at Channing School London’s Global Futures event focusing on ‘Where Modern Foreign Languages can take you in the world of work.’
The event was introduced by the Chartered Institute of Linguists’ Co-Chair Baroness Coussins who provided insightful commentary on the state of the language market and uptake of languages in the UK.
The students asked some incredibly important questions and the event was expertly moderated by Harper's Bazaar UK and Town & Country's Editor in Chief, Lydia Slater, and Head of Magazines at The Telegraph, Sasha Slater, both of whom are linguists and true examples of how far languages can take you.
