Letter from the Editor-in-Chief

Dear Readers,
This edition of Business English Magazine sees Britain take centre stage, as Steve Sibbald assesses the fallout and consequences for Poles planning to move to the United Kingdom as Britain Votes to Leave the EU. On a related theme, our cover story, The Vicar’s Daughter in Designer Shoes by Janet Sandford, seeks to discover more about Britain’s new prime minister, Theresa May.

Going further afield, but remaining in investigative mode, Jonathon Sidor digs into the dirt surrounding The Panama Papers to see who’s been stowing away their millions in the Central American tax haven. Moving south, Michael Gaylord carries out a cost-benefit analysis of hosting the Olympic Games in Another Party for Brazil.

Visiting Albania may not be the first choice on most people’s bucket list, but Daniel Sandford’s first-hand travelogue reveals that the little-known Balkan state is Full of Surprises. Looking into the finance industry, Fiona Thomson audits Transferwise, the currency exchange company shaking up the banking world, in A Real-life Unicorn. For advice on personal finances, see if reading our Guru Review - Suze Orman by George Sandford, proves to be a good investment.

This is my last magazine as editor before stepping down to pursue other projects. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our readers for their continued support, and our authors and editorial team for their splendid work. I wish my successor the best of luck in carrying the publication forward.

Janet Sandford
