Introduction

The importance of meetings in international business cannot be understated. Most of us spend about 40% of our day in meetings! Successful meetings lead to more productivity, more customers and better business management. 


Effectively participating in a meeting is an essential skill if you want to be successful at your job. But what if you lack the English skills to participate? What if you feel shyawkward or embarrassed when you need to present or participate in a meeting? This can have a very negative affect on your career and your promotion prospects. 

So, what can you do to improve your English and successfully participate in or even run effective meetings? You need to learn the best practices for effective meetings, as well as the language skills to participate confidently. 


You need a map! A step-by-step system that shows you what language to use and at what stages of a meeting to use it. 

That is what you get with the "Confidence in Business Meetings" online course. I teach you how to run effective meetings AND all the language you need to participate in them. 

What is the "Confidence in Business Meetings" online course

This online course is designed to teach you how to prepare, run, manage and close a meeting effectively... all in English! You will learn all my secrets for effectively preparing and making sure you get your desired outcomes. You will also get all the language you need to participate in the different stages of the meeting. Plus, there are two bonus lessons on how to evaluate the effectiveness of your meetings and follow-up with people.

If you want a wider view of Global Communication, The Art of Business English is one of the best ways to achieve it. Highly recommended!
