A doubtful friend is worse
than a certain enemy.
Why do this?
Having trained over 10,000 non-native speakers of English over the years; we know what they want. They all wish they could speak English more fluently.
So what is fluent speech?
It’s the ability to think – and then speak – without the barriers which many non-native English speakers stumble over: translating words from their first language, mentally forming sentences before speaking and worrying about mistakes.
When it comes to spoken fluency, it’s clear what the non-native wants. They want to speak with the confidence, flow and ease of their native-English speaking colleagues.
I am happy to tell you that this is not only possible, but readily attainable for many non-native English speakers. But not until they can change their mind-set and the bad habits which they have picked up from their years of learning English through the grammar-focussed route which caused their insecurities and lack of fluency in the first place.
Speak English fluently and understand even fastpaced natives as a non-native English speaking executive who needs to communicate
What are the benefits?
You will start by understanding how the way you learnt English in the past, although good for developing your knowledge of the language, is the very reason why you are not a fluent speaker of comfortable listener of the language.
You will learn to speak with the same fluency as an intelligent, educated, native-English speaking executive in a global organisation by understanding the single difference between how they speak and you speak and by following a 12-week exercise which will enable you to speak like them.
Furthermore, you will conquer your fear of making mistakes when you speak in English, so instead of sitting passively in meetings and not sharing your ideas, you will become a confident, fluent and proactive participant.
- Understanding the single cause of communication breakdown for non-native professionals with advanced knowledge of English; this will always stop you from becoming a fluent speaker
- The one difference between the way that native-English speakers and non-native speakers speak; replicating this difference will enable you to speak with the same fluency as a native-English speaker
- How to gain the spoken fluency of an intelligent, educated native-English managers with just 12 hours of practice over a 12-week period
- How to listen to English in the same way that you listen to your first language so that you understand everything and no longer waste energy and get tired and frustrated in professional contexts
- How to deal with difficult accents, especially with native-English speakers, so that you can quickly get used to them and understand what they are saying in your professional verbal interactions
This is a practical and engaging workshop backed up by robust theories from psychology and communication theory and with role-play exercises replicating the exact challenges you will face on the job.
Stop your stress, hesitation and clumsiness when you speak English and gain the confidence, fluency and authority
of a native-English speaking executive
I expected the Audit Report Writing Workshop to be a very dry and theoretical course with instructions on how we write reports in Vodafone.
But to tell you the truth, I came home and I said to my wife: “Susan, today I’ve had the most amazing training I’ve ever had!” – and I’ve had some great training!
The report writing training was fantastic – the difference being that the trainer really knew how to bring the message across. The training was very interactive. It not only taught me how to write in the most efficient and professional way but also how to make a powerful connection with the reader.
All in all, we not only learnt how to write reports, but we also learnt how to communicate effectively which I think is the key. That was the real added value of this course.

As a training experience, Financial Report Writing Workshop took our attention from the very start – not just me, but the whole group.
People were saying: “Wow! It’s 9 o’clock on the day of the first session and we have already defined exactly what the key problem is with our report writing.”
I would definitely recommend this financial report writing training. It’s not just about the books and the materials, but it’s important to learn things that you will remember at work and know how to use.
I immediately applied what I learnt from the training into my real business life. The expertise of the trainer and how the training was delivered was the key to success here. What is delivered is important, but how it was delivered was what I would also like to recommend. In this sense, it was better than 99% of the training I have had till now.
