“ I was pleasantly surprised. The Business Communication group course was fully tailor-made to meet all my needs... It has been an invaluable experience” Anne Marie de Jong Landstede College – The Netherlands
Communication in business requires a mix of language knowledge and communication skills. Language knowledge gives you the security that you are using the correct forms, communication skills give you the ability to build relationships and accomplish tasks. Taken together these two elements create competence in business communication. Success in international business depends increasingly on good interpersonal skills, fluency of speech, effectiveness of communication, and accuracy of language. Our Business Communication courses are for professionals who wish to focus on real practice of their business communication skills (presentations, meetings, negotiations, telephoning and writing).
