I’m Steve Flinders. I’m a freelance trainer, writer, consultant and coach.

I was born in the UK and read Politics, Philosophy and Economics at university. I then took a gap decade, working as a volunteer in a school in Pakistan, living in SW Ireland, getting a teaching qualification, teaching English in Sweden, and spending a year walking round Great Britain.

In the 80s I lived and worked in Paris, first in higher education and then as a manager in a private sector training company. In the early 90s, I returned to the UK to become a director of York Associates.

York Associates helps people develop skills for working internationally. For the next twenty years, I designed and delivered various kinds of training to develop the professional language, communication, intercultural and leadership skills of clients, as well as sharing in the running of the company and writing books. I particularly enjoyed working with politicians, civil servants, trades unionists, journalists and HR managers.

I’ve now left York Associates and live in Malta where I continue to work on a part-time basis. When I’m not working, I enjoy practising yoga, swimming, reading, playing the piano, travelling and talking.
