Executive Business English

 

 

You already know how to speak English, you can read emails and reports, you can make yourself understood.

The question is – can you really make English work in your favor?

Can you negotiate, convince, sell your ideas, be persuasive?

Can you really communicate your thoughts?

The Executive Business English class is meant for people who need English not just on the operational level to respond to emails and basic enquiries. It is meant for people on the top levels of hierarchy who need to be eloquent, who lead high level negotiation where it is critical to express the key points in more than one way with confidence.

Not only know WHAT to say but also HOW to say it so that there is no misunderstanding and the explanation is brief and to the point.

 

The class is a very small size and runs over several months.

The content is flexible based on immediate business needs of the participants.

  • Negotiation skills – dynamic of negotiation, practical phrases for each milestone, argument preparation
