Mike Crawford, the long term franchisee of Smith’s School of English,Tsuruhashi has relocated to Shizuoka due to work commitments, and the school has transferred hands to Paul Rutherford and Mike Cafuta. It was sad to see Mike go as he has been a popular figure around Osaka for many years, but this represents an outstanding opportunity and challenge for both Mike and I.
Mike Cafuta has previously coached at the school, so he already has a sound knowledge of both the system and student base. He is also entering with new and innovative ideas and methods that will enhance the reputation and productivity of the school.
After briefly meeting with Mark Smith recently, it was amazing to hear of the incredible developments in web based promotion that is now under way in the Smith system.
So, again, welcome Mike!!
Look forward to seeing and meeting you all.
Best wishes, Paul
