In 2012, Julia’s first book, “The Lingua Franca of the Corporate Banker” is an explanation and an exploration of idiomsyncrasises of business. The book contains a glossary of over 500 expressions and business jargon, including ‘Blue sky thinking’, offering dry explanations and a pause for thought.
“A light-hearted book but one with a good question at its heart: why do we feel the need to conform to language we often ridicule and never use out of the office? Well-researched and readable, it also taught me quite a few new phrases I never knew.”
Philip Stafford, Financial Times
