Essential Business Communication

First things first – communicating face-to-face

There are three things we probably all do when meeting new people: we make contact, we talk about ourselves and find out about the other person (personal as well as professional things), and – if they are from abroad – we talk about our country. In business, doing these things well is your ticket to successful communication.

In our Essential Business Communication seminars you get the vocabulary and the intensive speaking practice you need for this – and of course there is room for talking about yourself and your work/business/organisation.

Be in your element when networking in international settings.

  • feel confident about building business contacts and making professional small talk
  • make optimum use of networking opportunities
  • learn essential phrases: know what to say, and how to say itffectively
  • present yourself and your work in informal contexts
