Senior Lecturer Christian Venhuizen, who holds an MA in Applied Linguistics and Teaching Methodology, teaches Business Communications (360W) and Introduction to Business (201) at the Beedie School of Business. Christian has taught BUS360W at SFU for 12 years, and BUS201 for five years, since returning to BC following over a decade of teaching various courses in Taiwan, ROC. He currently serves as the course coordinator for BUS360W, and also coordinates the Beedie Writing Mentors program: a volunteer service in which trained undergraduate students assist other undergrads to improve their communication skills.

Christian worked closely with the Beedie JDC West team from 2015-18 and 2020 as their Faculty Advisor.

Outside of teaching, Christian has over 16 years of experience assisting researchers from around the world seeking to publish their research in leading English language journals, predominantly in the fields of Business, Linguistics and Literature; this includes copy-editing and proof-reading services. His familiarity with Mandarin Chinese is useful when assisting scholars from around Asia.
