World Language Consultants was founded in 1967 when Rio Tinto, the world's foremost mining company, set up an internal Language training Unit with the assistance of Julio Pinna. Over 150 staff were trained by this pioneering unit, which provided one of the first language and cultural training programmes of its kind.

The programme was soon extended to other companies, and in the mid-1970s Christies opened its exclusive centre which, under Julio's direction, delivered bespoke training to the executives, managers and experts at the auction house.
