A Talk by Christopher Johnson

Christopher Johnson studied French & German at Cambridge in the mid-1970s and, after a brief spell as a language teacher, worked for over 30 years in banking & investment, including 22 years with a French bank. Separately, he lived in France for 8 years, where he was a voluntary mentor to small businesses and is still a Councillor in a town which was once a Huguenot stronghold and scene of a summit meeting between Queen Catherine de’ Medici and the future King Henri IV.
