Learning how to run a business is never easy, especially finding your audience. We discuss these ideas with uTalk’s very own Dick Howeson and Nat Dinham, a very special duo in London, two lifelong language enthusiasts who run a pioneering company in the UK.
A few months ago, I was contacted by a mysterious man named Alec who wanted to speak to me on behalf of a company. The company’s name? uTalk.
At first I was skeptical. I didn’t want to get involved with any business deals, but it turns out they wanted to share their story. They were communicating to connect.
Throughout my conversation I was constantly in awe of the wisdom contained in his years of experience. Dick is an incredible guy. Want me to prove it?
How many people have won an award from Her Majesty the Queen? That’s right. For his work with uTalk, Dick was given the honor of receiving one of the UK’s most prestigious awards, awarded by Her Majesty The Queen. Google it!
This planet has 7.5 plus billion people. Did you know if you were to meet one new person every second, it would take you 230+ years! Regardless, the world has a special way of bringing people together despite distance.
On our ever continuing journey to communicate to connect, we discuss backbone business practices, wooing customers and making friends.
You know that someone knows what they’re talking about when they’ve met the Queen of England.
If you couldn’t care less about languages, this episode is for you. If you want to learn some good business practices, this is also for you.
In Today’s Episode:
- How having a meeting with Frenchmen launched a company
- Not being afraid to break the ice

uTalk has already helped over 30 million people in 100 countries round the world to learn a language.
They have very rare languages like Tigrinya, Javanese, Dzongkha, and dozens of others for which you’d have to travel to the country in order to learn.
This very much is exciting to me because my family is quite multilingual. My grandparents generation speaks Javanese and they’ve always spoken it to each other as their secret language. They told me it was impossible to learn, but now with uTalk I can at least dip my toes in the water.
This is a great idea as it means you can start to get familiar with a language inflight, which means you can feel all the more confident chatting to the locals when you arrive at your destination.
Thanks as always for listening. If you have any suggestions please shoot me an email via the contact form!
Until next time. Stay incredible!
