Patron of ESU International

The ESU brings together and empowers people of different languages and cultures.

“At the heart of the vision for the ESU, are the Members. The Members in the Branches, those who are not here, the people who do the volunteering on the ground to deliver what we are able to offer to those to whom the English-Speaking Union reaches out, and I am so excited by the potential that we have amongst our Members.” (Lord Paul Boateng, Chairman of ESU)
