American Enterprise Business Speak
Learn to Speak so that American Enterprise Business Audiences can Easily Understand You
Are you an MBA who wants to gain an edge over your peers and job market competitors?
American enterprise communication skills are in high demand, yet short supply among newly minted MBAs. According to Bloomberg Business, it is a "Job skill that companies want but can't get" (Bloomberg Business - 2015 Job Skills Report).
Learning how to communicate effectively in an American enterprise business environment will give you a competitive advantage so that you can gain a solid return on your MBA investment.
The American Enterprise Business Speak course is designed specifically for non-native speakers of American English intending to take on a leadership role in large enterprise businesses.
In the American Enterprise Business Speak course:
Your MBA career demands that you communicate in a way that Americans managers respect, understand and resonate with.
The lessons in the American Enterprise Business Speak course are designed to help you achieve this.
The enterprise business terminology featured in this course is selected from my list of common mis-pronounciations made by international professionals I've worked with in my American accent coaching program.
The business practice dialogs are taken from real life situations that enterprise professionals encounter every day.
Video Case Studies featuring recognized American MBA leaders, including Harvard University's Michael Porter, will show you exactly how American business professionals speak.
I guarantee that my course will teach you the secrets for speaking American Enterprise English in a manner that is clear, professional and engaging.
