I am a Business English coach with over 10 years experience helping business professionals improve their confidence and skills to perform at the highest level.
I’m going to reveal to you the keys to socialising confidently so that you are a more confident net-worker and communicator in English.
If you want a real, actionable social English skills based course - if you want to escape the frustration and embarrassment of social events where EVERYONE is speaking English. - then taking a fast-track course on socialising is the way to go.
In fact, let’s get more specific: I want to show you how you can socialise confidently in English, avoid the embarrassing mistakes and meet new people with ease.
Our system divides socialising into very concrete linguistic steps, using essential grammar and the mechanics or "dance" of social situations. We look at what a native person expects to hear so that you are ready for a typical interaction. Ready to "dance" in a social situation.
That’s the beauty of my course. It’s short, simple, straight to the point and designed specifically to make you feel confident from the beginning. My step-by-step programme gets you socialising in no time.
It may surprise you to hear me say that poor social English skills can cost you money!
But here’s the thing: I have seen over and over again the negative outcomes of people avoiding social situations. Socialising is communication and poor communication results in a lose of potential new clients. Missing out on business opportunities. Missing out on finding and hiring top talent and many more.
There is nothing worse than being the boss or a manager and not being able to attend trade fairs, events or receive clients and potential customers at your company. Imagine, not feeling comfortable entertaining your best client over a lunch or dinner.
Unless you don't need to socialise in English on a regular basis, I suggest not making the same mistakes and take the steps to improve your networking and social skills. It could just save you more money and time than you realise.
You feel awkward speaking English in social situations. Somehow you say the wrong thing at the wrong time.
How many of us have felt this way when we tried to talk to someone at a business event? Or even to talk to new people at work at a trade fair?
The places change, but the story’s the same: you tell yourself, I am not like the “naturals” who always seem to know the right thing to say. Who seem so comfortable with their English. Instead, when we say something, it comes out completely wrong. Or worse — we just sit there quietly like a statue in the corner.
If there’s one thing worse than saying the wrong thing, it’s being forgettable. Being forgettable doesn't get you new customers or clients. It gets you, well... forgettable.
Have you ever done this?
But it doesn't have to be this way, you can learn the skills to engage people in conversation and comfortably maintain a conversation in English.
You know what I mean, you try and avoid social situations because you don't feel confident with your English. But sometimes you just can't avoid a dinner or event and then you get so angry with yourself for not having worked on improving your English. Why? Because you feel like the only idiot at the table who can't maintain a conversation in English.
You keep asking yourself "Why can't I say what I mean!!?", "Why don't people want to talk to me?".
It’s okay to admit it, sometimes life gets in the way of our good intentions. We, don't have the time to work on our English, even though we know we have to.
The reality is that you can't just "survive" in social situations, you need to prosper.
The truth is that we need to take the time to improve our social English skills. Why? Because that is what will get us new business opportunities and make us feel confident around English speaking people.
For example, we might go to a trade fair, we meet some clients and then we struggle to have a conversation. You almost die with embarrassment when they ask you to have lunch with them. You try and think of some excuse to leave, but you know that would seem rude. Arrh! The lunch is awkward and uncomfortable, and you really wish you could entertain your client, but you can't think of anything to say.
Do you know what is the worst thing? Your client will never tell you how they feel! We never get feedback, all we know is that we feel stupid and embarrassed.
You don't need to feel this way!
Do you want to know how to react naturally to what people say? What about understanding correct body language and key expressions?
The AOBE course "How to Engage People in Conversation" teaches you the little secrets behind what to say and when to say it. This instantly provides clarity and makes you feel more confident in your interactions.
Like it or not, poor social skills has a cost on business. This cost manifests itself in two ways, missed opportunities and losing money.
Too much social interaction today is indirect and over social media. People lack the interpersonal skills to form real relationships.
Rather than helping us be better communicators, we are in fact losing the art of communicating. Put the barrier of another language up and we are often unable to effectively engage people, preferring the "comfort" of silence.
Avoiding social interactions goes against human nature. We are a tribal species, we need human interactions. Think of all of the wonderful things that can happen when you meet new people:
"Andrew, I have tried to improve my social English skills but it's just not working."
Maybe you’ve been reading so far and rolling your eyes. “Tell me something I don’t know yet.”
Maybe you’ve been trying to find the confidence to be more social. Maybe you have been trying to overcome your frustration and you’re still struggling because you feel like you're not progressing.
This is because you haven't got the correct "map", no one has shown you the way forward. You are like a person walking in the dark. You don't get any feedback and no one tells you what mistakes you're making. You can't clearly see the way to get the improvement you need.
Don’t know how to find the clarity you need? Well, what if you had an exact system for showing you how to feel confident and prepared for social interactions with people you have just met.
That's what you get with the AOBE course "How to engage people in conversation!
Let's face it. You can have the best technical skills in the world. But if you can’t communicate with the people around you — if you haven’t learned the skills of being likeable — what’s the point?
Improving your English speaking in social situations isn't just about making you feel comfortable. The ability to put your awkwardness to one side and make other people feel great when they meet you is essential to our very ability to live a Rich Life in personal, professional and even intimate relationships.
Most people sit around praying that there is a magic pill, a pill that will allow them to learn English instantly. Most sane people know that this is fictitious. Socialising in English speaking environments requires you to have the skills to socialise, as well as the linguistic skills to engage people in conversation. If you don't have those skills, then they are not going to magically appear. You need to practice them to become expert.
Think how powerful it would be to develop the skills to engage people in conversation in English. What an amazing advantage — to know you can go anywhere and be confident. You can walk in to a situation with authenticity and openness, and walk away leaving people smiling. That's more important than any marketing or psychology tactic. Just being "you" and not worrying about if you think your English is "good" enough to talk to people.
That's how the AOBE course "How to engage people in conversation" helps you. It gives you the blueprint, a guide on how you can approach socialising situations when you know you have to speak English.
Being able to socialise well in any language is a powerful, if not essential business skill to have.
Communication skills are central to being an effective worker, manager or leader. If we want to expand our business, grow our customer base, build an audience, then we need to socialise well and network effectively.
Of course you can easily find people who’ve tried to improve their networking and conversation skills but end up bitterly disappointed or totally frustrated with their lack of progress.
That’s because, quite frankly, most learners who try this are going about it the completely wrong way.
Let me break it down for you - let’s look at the typical mistakes that lead to poor social skills.
With this course, I’m teaching my entire system that shows you how to engage people in conversation with confidence.

Okay, so I claim to be some kind of expert and I claim to be able to teach you how to socialise in English. But can you really trust me? After all, how many rubbish teachers have you had in your life?
I totally agree with your scepticism, here. In the English teaching space, there are too many “experts” who don’t really know what they’re talking about. People who's only claim to being a good teacher is the fact that they are native. However, they have no experience, except for the 60 hour "TOFEL" course they did last month.
