What is the course about?

Become more effective when communicating with international contacts. By following a Business Communication course, you will develop the English you need at work - grammar and business / profession-specific vocabulary. You can also work on your professional communication skills such as leading / participating in (virtual) meetings, delivering presentations, negotiating, telephoning, socialising and writing emails. This course will also help you increase your intercultural competence (understanding ‘culture’, profiling your own and others’ culture) and give you tips to manage diversity effectively.
